The First Responder Network Authority has unveiled the agency’s blog on the Tumblr social networking website as part of an effort to share information with first responders via audio, video and social media posts.
FirstNet’s Kyle Richardson wrote in a blog post published Thursday the agency aims to share multimedia content and reach a wider audience through Tumblr and other websites.
“The pure goal of our mission as an agency is to put mobile technology in the hands of first responders — so our content must be mobile-friendly,” he added.
FirstNet’s focus on mobility and videos follows a recent discussion between the agency and Tumblr centered on statistical data that indicate 66 percent of users view content via mobile devices and 95 percent of content is accessed via shares, according to Richardson.
He wrote that the Tumblr site will also work to help FirstNet engage with local, tribal, state and federal public safety organizations and professionals, some of whom use the platform.
