The Okotoks Fire Department (OFD) has created a Twitter account to better engage with residents and keep them updated on current safety measures, road closures and active incidents.
The Twitter account is being launched on May 4 to commemorate International Firefighters' Day. On this date, you are invited to remember the past firefighters who have died while saving lives and protecting the community.
Currently, all fire department social media messaging has been distributed through the Town of Okotoks’ channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The OFD Twitter account will ensure residents have access to timely information, which will include flood preparedness, fire prevention, emergency alerts, motor vehicle collisions, road closures and more.
