Social Media & EMS (v2)

Course overview

Social media in its various forms has quickly become part of everyday life. Posting, tweeting, and pinning online have become as commonplace as emailing or talking on the phone.

While EMS organizations can use social media to their advantage as a recruiting tool or a way to disseminate valuable life-saving information to the community, there can be downsides to its use by individual providers. This program explains how the improper use of social media can negatively affect EMS providers and organizations, outlines social media best practices for EMS professionals, and reviews guidelines for assessing or creating a fair and effective social media policy.
