Lyndonville Fire Department Refines Social Media

assistant fire chiefLYNDON - The Lyndon Fire Department spoke with us on how they are using social media.

Patrick Mclaughin, assistant chief for Lyndon and now recently, Regional Manager for the Fire Safety Division eplained what the fire department is planning online.

Since 2012, the Lyndonville Fire Department has slowly worked to use their social media more. They currently have expanded their presence from Facebook and Twitter and recently onto Youtube.

Mclaughin expressed this was done to let the public know what their local fire department is doing and spread awareness on fire safety. 

Most of the posts on their facebook and twitter are used as a fire log of sorts. Others, like most of their Youtube videos, deal with different ways to help prevent fires. The department has released Christmas tree safety, and cooking safety videos.
