FXFRD Goes Live With Twitter

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department

News Release 13-47
Date:  April, 30, 2013

The FXFRD continues to expand its social media presence with the activation of Twitter - our twitter user name is @ffxfirerescue. The platform provides more opportunity and enhances the ability to share and push important public information to new and growing audiences.

Having the opportunity to engage the public provides an invaluable communications tool to share the organizations' story and broaden the reach of communications with the community. The Twitter platform will help create a culture of engagement, and increase government transparency and efficiency.

Initially, news releases, announcements, FXFRD events, fire and life safety tips, and other news of interest will be tweeted to media and followers. Expansion to sharing major and significant incidents in real time is being planned for the future.

To sign up for Twitter go to https://twitter.com/ffxfirerescue, to follow us on Facebook, RSS feed, and to view our video playlist, go to www.fairfaxcounty.gov/fr.
