#PoppySocialStory - 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 video by Sgt Harry Tangye explains more:
This initiative was launched yesterday at B-APCO 2017 during the presentation on ‘Social Media in Public Safety – How Far Have We Come?’ by Chief Inspector Kerry Blakeman, West Midlands Police and Julian Foster, Motorola Solutions Global Co-Lead for Social Media Centre of Excellence.
