Sarasota EOC now Tweets

Dear Sarasota County Residents:

The Sarasota County Emergency Operations Center has added the free social media network, Twitter, to our box of tools to communicate with the media and residents during the 2009 hurricane season.

Every day the EOC Twitter page will have updates called “tweets” on news releases, as well as, other messages to help you prepare for emergency situations.  During actual emergency activations information on closings, shelter openings, hurricane track updates, changes in the solid waste collection schedules and other messages pertinent to an emergency activation will be provided.

Tweets are limited to 140 characters, so the messages will be succinct, and many times will direct you to a Web page link for more detailed information.

To follow the Sarasota County EOC on Twitter, go to http://twitter.com/scgoveoc
