Information Regarding Social Media/Public Relations

The GKFC Social Media Unit keeps the residents of Bridgewater informed through various channels and media. We also provide transparency into the department that protects our community, with a means of watching, and reading the stories of the dedicated and hardworking firefighters that are apart of the GKFC. This section delineates some of the GKFC's communication outlets, with an in-depth look at the department's dealings with media, as well as the publications and videos.

 

Social media has become an important part of how we all communicate. The Green Knoll Fire Company has been a leader in the field of social media as one of the many Departments in the Township to interact on social media. The GKFC alerts the public and media about incidents while also posting safety messages year-round.

 

The public now expects their fire departments to not just post on social media, but creatively interact with them.  In 2017, the Department launched social media accounts for Instagram, as well as Twitter. The Department will finalize a new social media policy that allows for a more creative approach to communication at the station level and beyond. This will enable us to provide you even more engagement and updates of the GKFC in action. 

 

Social media has become a regular part of our operation and it will continue to grow.  Green Knoll Fire Company is incorporating it into their everyday operations while continuing to push out safety messages that reach a Township wide audience and many people Countywide.

 

We would like to thank you all for being a part of the Green Knoll Fire Company Social Media groups!
