NEWS - Poppy Social Story: Honouring Those Who Keep Us Safe - Every day, Emergency Services personnel are using social media to inform the public and engage with the communities they serve. Social media has becoming a vital tool for communicating during times of crisis, but also for building transparent relationships with the public. Whether it be on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Google+, or SnapChat – public safety professionals are doing incredible work on social media to help keep us all safe. To honour this, Motorola Solutions are donating £1 to The Royal British Legion* for each use of the hashtag #PoppySocialStory. Please share your examples of how social media is being used in public safety – it can be a Tweet, Facebook post, a photo, video, or even just a "shout out" for your favourite public safety social media account. Please just remember to include #PoppySocialStory.
This year we will also be sponsoring the established Autumn event as well as the new BAPCO Spring event. Here are the dates for your diary:
- BAPCO Spring, 23-24 May
- BAPCO Autumn, 8-9 November
(* Maximum donation from Motorola Solutions to The Royal British Legion will be capped at £2,000).
