As you surf around the FireEMS Blogs community, you will start seeing these little tabs in the upper right-hand corner of all the individual postings:
You will see more of them on other websites as well. They are like a “speed dial” for social network sharing of favorite articles that you would like to send to your correspondents. Let’s take the “f / Share” tab, for example. If you already have a Facebook account, then by clicking on that tab you will automatically open the famliar little posting window that has the link to the story already there. Up in the top box, you add in your message, same as always, then click on “Share.” A reminder: on the link box, don’t forget to scroll to the pic that you want to display.
For your Twitter account, it is even simpler. A simple click on there brings up the ReTweet box with the link already in it and you add your brief message. The first time you use the ReTweet button, you will get a “permission” screen asking if you want to use the Tweet Meme Access program. This is a security measure and it will be the only time you will be asked. Future retweets will post unimpeded.
So if you want to, just for the fun of it and a learn-by-doing experience, click on the tabs that you see on the upper right (not the sample box I posted above on the left) and see how it works.

If you didn’t see that impressive video that we posted yesterday of the mudslide-in-progress in Calabria, Italy, then take a minute and CLICK HERE to watch it. It’s a stunner. This morning I’m posting this video of a couple of firefighters surveying what looks to be the same spot showing the aftermath of it. It’s got to be tough on those folks. The entire town of just over 2,000 people has been vacated.
Well, let’s count our blessings and then get this equipment checked out. I need to start some more coffee.
