Safety Face­book page of­fers tips and info

Connecticut Post (Sunday) - - Newsbites - — toneill@hearst­medi­act.com

The city re­launched its Emer­gency Man­age­ment and Home­land Se­cu­rity Face­book page to give res­i­dents in­sight into im­por­tant sit­u­a­tions and safety tips.

The page can be found at bit. ly/ 2sDE17e, or by search­ing Bridge­port Emer­gency Oper­a­tions Cen­ter on Face­book. The so­cial me­dia page will give the com­mu­nity safety In­for­ma­tion and up­dates on emer­gency re­sources and oper­a­tion plans as needed.

“This in­for­ma­tion may in­clude any pub­lic emer­gen­cies and dis­as­ters or sig­nif­i­cant weather in­ci­dents,” said city spokes­woman Rowena White.

The Bridge­port EOC ac­count on Twit­ter will no longer be ac­tive.

Res­i­dents will also get in­for­ma­tion on safety pro­grams like C. E. R. T. — Com­mu­nity Emer­gency Re­sponse Team. The pro­gram ed­u­cates vol­un­teers in dis­as­ter pre­pared­ness.
