Of course you can also create another list (maybe the school, the Chamber of Commerce, the Council, the local pub) but I focussed my Facebook tutorial on how to supplement Fires Near Me, ARCGIS, NASA satellites etc, with local emergency services news. The link to CREATE A FACEBOOK LIST FOR EMERGENCY SERVICES is here
Unfortunately, Facebook decided to turn off the ability for us to make our lists public – don’t ask me, I suspect they don’t want people getting timely relevant information, as it disrupts their ads – but if you are Australian, need access to the local fire brigade updates as well as FNM, you might find this video useful.

Background: I’ve put together a playlist of social media tips for Rural and Country Australia called #BushSocial. I live (and work) in the Blue Mountains of NSW, Australia and have seen first hand the devastation to our beautiful land. The only way I can think of to help is to offer my knowledge as a social media manager, consultant and lecturer to small businesses in the area that are fighting their way back in a difficult situation. If you are not a small business you may or may not find these social media tutorials interesting. If you are a small business pick and choose what you implement: it is NOT my intention to make your job harder, you have enough to do to get up and running again with your services to the Australian bush and rural community.
