Stanislaus Consolidated Fire Protection District (SCFPD) sees great opportunity to significantly increase its communications and become fully interactive with the community we serve. We recognize that the more traditional means of transmitting information to the public have become antiquated, cumbersome, and slow. SCFPD seeks to vastly increase the speed with which we communicate incidents, stories, alerts and activities of interest so that the members of our community receive timely, accurate, and exciting information directly from the source, without any external filters.

In November of 2013, Stanislaus Consolidated Fire Protection District joined Facebook (/StanConFirePIO) and Twitter (@StanConFirePIO) as part of our continuing effort to provide members of our community with information pertaining to public safety. Captain Buck Condit was assigned as the District’s Public Information Officer and continues to do an outstanding job of leading our District’s public information, social media, and community engagement efforts. On December 30, 2014, Carissa Higginbotham was appointed as the Deputy Public Information Officer to provide additional support to Captain Condit, who will continue to oversee the program.

In addition to utilizing our website (www.scfpd.us), YouTube account, and social media forums to share information with our community, SCFPD has recently joined Nixle, a community information service designed to deliver important and timely information to residents in our area using the latest technology.

Nixle delivers trustworthy and important neighborhood-level public safety and community event notifications by web e-mail, and cell phone. It connects municipal agencies and community organizations to residents in real time, delivering information to geographically targeted consumers over their cell phones (via text messages), through e-mails and through Web access.

Residents and the media can now take advantage of Nixle for alerts related to public safety threats, community events, and news releases via web, e-mail, and cell phone. Sign up at www.nixle.com to register now for free, learn more, and share this new service with friends and neighbors.

As a public safety agency, we recognize the importance of connecting with the people we serve and we know that it is through the electronic and social media environment that we can generate far more interaction with the public than relying on outside sources.
