Best Practices for Incorporating…

A few good friends sent me the new Best Practices for Incorporating Social Media into Exercises released by the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology First Responders Group.

Lots of good reading info in there from the International CAUSE IV experiment that I contributed in Michigan and our international partners in safety – Canada Public Safety.

Your best tweets will show first? Hellz no! #firehose

Seems like Twitter is trying to prioritize the most important tweets to you.

Awwwwwwwwww, hellz no!

Well, at least they *think* they can predict what you want to read from your follower base.

Don’t be fooled. You can toggle this option off via your Twitter settings. And I suggest you do.

Because if you are like me, you like LOVE drinking from the fire hose.

So do the right thing and toggle your “best Tweets first” to the off position.

Never settle for a supposed predicted computed algorithm to calculate what it thinks I want to read. I can make that decision on my own.

To the best country in the world…

To the best country in the world…Happy 4th of July everyone!

Our nation who has relentlessly fought to be the home of the brave…because every true American bleeds red, white, and blue.

4thJuly-2015

And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world, ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.” – President Kennedy, 1960

Let freedom ring.

Firefighter on Truck Company rescues cat from house fire

It’s Friday…and I bet it’s been quite a week for everyone.

We all need a few moments of hope and smiles for this weekend.

Fresno Firefighter Cory Kalanick chalks another one in the save column with this interior rescue effort using a GoPro Camera.

Even if you don’t like cats (or kitten savers), you just gotta love it.

Way to go Brother.

Best. Job. In. The. World.
