Minnesota's Use of Facebook for Prevention

Are you searching for a Facebook page with links to informative fire prevention pictures and videos?

Look no further than the Minnesota Department of Public Safety State Fire Marshal’s Office. The Facebook page is administered by its Office of Communications and Deputy State Fire Marshal Becki White.

The page was created when Becki started her public education role and it went live during December 2009. The site is creative, progressive and educational. It provides followers with fire safety tips throughout the year. 

Please visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/StateFireMarshal and you will find a wealth of information for your fire prevention toolbox.

As a bonus for our readers, Becki graciously shared a pdf with the "Playing it Safe" blog which includes two articles which she wrote for the Minnesota Fire Chief’s Magazine. The articles provide information on utilizing social media as well as crafting social media policies in emergency services.

Have fun visiting the Facebook page and tell them that the "Playing it Safe" blog sent you! Also, take a look at their website for more informaition.

Until next time,

Stay safe!
