Fremont Police and Fire Department Public Safety Twitter Broadcast

Press Release: Public Safety Social Media Live Broadcast

Spend 15 hours with Fremont’s Finest...

On Friday, September 23, 2011, the Fremont Police and Fire Department will feature a Public Safety Social Media Live Broadcast utilizing the @FremontPD Twitter account. The Fremont Police Department launched the Twitter account earlier in the year in the continued effort to expand and diversify our outreach efforts. The event Friday is intended to educate and spread awareness to our citizens on the daily efforts of the two public safety departments.

Beginning at 11:00 AM on Friday, September 23, 2011 through 2:00 AM Saturday, September 24, 2011, members of the two Departments will raise awareness by tweeting all public safety calls for service that come into the 9-1-1 center. The hours chosen, correlate with the peak service times. Members of the community are encouraged to follow @FremontPD. We encourage engagement and dialogue from the community during the event. City of Fremont employees will be on hand to respond to comments and questions during the 15 hour event.

During the 15 hour event, you can expect to receive in the range of 200-250 tweets. This is the average number of incidents generated in Fremont on any given day. Tweets will provide real time information including general call type and call dispositions. Fremont Police and Fire Staff will manage the event and be available to answer community questions on-line. The event will be staffed by Chief Craig Steckler, Captain Frank Grgurina, Captain Richard Lucero, Press Information Officer Detective Bill Veteran, Fire Operations Staff Captain Gerry Fogel, Lieutenant John Liu and Community Engagement Manager Geneva Bosques.

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
