Why Not Indeed! LAFD on Social Media

This is awesome…I was commenting on Lee Odden’s blog (TopRankBlog.com) this morning (David Alston of Radian6 guest-posted) and one of the recent comments to the post on the need for social media monitoring was one I wouldn’t have expected!

Original Post

Brian Humphrey of the LAFD’s comment:


Lee,

David's guest post is but one of the many features that keep us coming back to your blog.

In an era where too many organizations descibe on-line dialogue about them as 'why us?', the Los Angeles Fire Department is pleased to be among the increasing number of brands saying 'why not us?'.

While our efforts are difficult to quantify as a typical return-on-investment, the qualifying effect on safety, health, productivity - and overall public trust is far beyond metrics.

Our thanks to David and you for helping and keeping us thinking outside the norm!

Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,


Brian Humphrey
Firefighter/Specialist
Public Service Officer
