Montville Goes Social to Communicate in Emergency Situations

Township hoping to build follower base on Facebook, Twitter.

Montville Township is hoping to expand its communication reach by launching pages on social media sites to be used during emergency situations.

The Montville Township Facebook page and Twitter page were presented to the township committee and public for the first time at Tuesday night's meeting. As Township Administrator Victor Canning explained, the sites will be used as another avenue to reach the public during an emergency situation.

Expanded communication, including through social media, was one suggestion made by the public during a town meeting in the days following Superstorm Sandy.

After committee members sought clarification on how the Facebook page would be used, officials explained that the page will only be used for the township to push information out and not necessarily for dialogue.

The first post on the Facebook page Tuesday was an announcement of the township meeting.
