What’s new on the very handy Template Toolkit?
Social media is a powerful tool for engaging your local community. But if you don’t know your ‘bitly’ from your ‘hashtag’, help is now at hand.
The new Guide to social media, compiled by our very handy Digital Media team, explains how to connect with local communities via social media in a way that’s easy to understand and will have you posting and sharing in no time.
It’s a great guide for beginners who want to get their brigades started on social media.
Learn the sorts of topics to post about, who to share posts with, how to shorten URLs and how to use hashtags. There’s also information specific to the different social media channels and a directory of emergency management social media accounts.
You can find the guide under the ‘How to and help’ tab on The very handy Template Toolkit.
Don’t forget that this Toolkit is a one-stop shop to help you communicate both internally and to the wider community, with a great range of templates and advice including corporate forms and letterheads and marketing materials.
You can also watch short videos to help get the creative juices flowing and book CFA event materials.
