    We use facebook as a way to get information out to those who dont read the local paper. We use this media to bring local residents information about what is happening in their community and how it affects their fire department.

    We first used it when the City closed down a fire station. We are surrently using it so inform voters of our campaign endorsements. We do this with status updates and our PAC has paid for facebook ads that target resident 18 and older.

    Facebook and other meduims can be very powerful tools when trying to communicate with the newer generation.
