Below are a few simple questions to ask yourself before using social media on – or off – the job. Help bolster yourself and your organization’s online reputation by answering yes to these questions.

Is my first priority public safety and emergency response, not social media?
Do my images, videos build a stronger, more effective and collaborative emergency management team? Do I bolster my organization’s presence and bring awareness to priority web resources?
Do I respect the individual’s identity and not risk sharing information about a victim or patient without signed consent?
Do I respect the property of my fellow British Columbians?
Do I respect emergency organizations, police investigations, on-site service providers, co-workers and homeowners?
Do I adhere to B.C.’s confidentiality laws and policies?
Do my social media communications redirect to credible, accurate and public information? Do I avoid speculating online if I do not know the answer to a safety-related question?
Do I avoid being perceived as an official media spokesperson?
