Why use Social Media? Chief Boyd tells us!

Post by: Kim Stephens

Gerald Baron’s company “Agincourt Strategies” is a social media consulting firm that has put together another great video that addresses this question: Why it is important for public safety agencies to use social media? The first video featured Gerald himself. This segment comes from the point of view of Fire Chief Bill Boyd–who also has a blog called “Not My Emergency”. ┬áChief Boyd is one of those early adopters that “gets” it. In this video he tells a compelling story that illustrates the importance of getting information to the public as quickly as possible–which can be done using social media from mobile platforms right from the scene of the event.

Pass this along to skeptical Fire Chiefs!
