Chief of Department Robert Seltzer announced today that the Smithfield Fire department is now on Twitter. The Twitter account for the fire department was activated today and is accessible through the fire department website (www.smithfieldfire.com) or the Twitter home page.
The chief stated that “the use of social media provides an opportunity to get information out to the public in a timely manner that otherwise would take much longer to do using traditional media sources”. The chief went on to say that “hopefully our Tweets to the local community will be useful and timely to a safe community life for all that live and visit Smithfield”.
