Social Media Handbook

The National Volunteer Workforce Solutions' Social Media Handbook is presented in a series of documents that will discuss how to use and manage social media. All or some parts of this series may apply to you and your department. Our goal is to offer guidance that will benefit your department when it comes to navigating social media.

The series will provide an in-depth look into how to use and manage some of the most popular social-media sites. It will also offer tips on how to improve the amount of followers you have and on how to find success in accomplishing your goals for these sites without consuming all of your time.

It’s our sincere hope that you find this series helpful in your social-media endeavors. Should you require additional help beyond the guide, we recommend turning to individuals near you who are active on social media. This may include your children, grandchildren, a young recruit or any tech-savvy member. You can also always reach out to the International Association of Fire Chiefs for assistance.
