City Of Winnipeg to Use Social Media for Flood and Emergency Preparedness Communication

The City of Winnipeg activated new Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts on Monday, April 4, 2011, as part of our overall flood and emergency preparedness communication strategies.  

The three emergency specific social media accounts will support the City’s existing EmergWeb site and provide residents with additional sources of up-to-date information on emergencies within the City.  

“By adding social media tools to our emergency communication strategy, Winnipeg residents will have multiple ways to stay informed,” said Randy Hull, Coordinator of the City’s Emergency Preparedness Program.
