Solid start to the week being able to deliver the brand new FEMA NDPTC Social Media Engagement Strategies course.
Numerous pros from across the state of California attending today.
Special thanks to the Sacramento County Office of Emergency Services in hosting this fun class in their Emergency Operations Center.
Super special shoutout goes to MayJo!
Talked specifically about addressing audiences and their appropriate platforms. Mediums like static posts are great however we need to explore outside of your comfort zone and try new avenues to communicate. FacebookLive, Periscope, InstagramLive, YouTubeLive, etc…..these new emerging live broadcast tools can allow agencies to be creative in their broadcast of messages.
Solid afternoon facilitation on the formulation of a strategic communications specifically focusing in on social media and audience engagement.
And of course the standard shout out to our friend Cheryl.
Overall, the intent of this class is really to be a catalyst to start a meaningful conversation about engaging your constituents on various social media platforms.
Obviously, you would be taking FEMA NDPTC PER-344 Social Media Tools & Techniques first – which gives you a heavy dose of the currrent tools/platforms that are out there as well as a bunch of tactics and techniques that you could use in your EOC or JIC.
Both courses provide a different take on social media actions esp during disasters / crisis.
Keep on learning peeps. Much more to digest and figure out.
We all must do better to support our local communities, county coordinators, and state officials to work and communicate together before, during, and after the disaster.
We the people right? #Merica
