Social for Safety Conference

The first-ever Social for Safety Conference will bring together communicators representing law enforcement, fire service, emergency management and more to share social media expertise and best practices.

#S4SCON is hosted by Reno-based Government Social Media LLC. We support the largest network of public sector social media professionals in the U.S. and host the Government Social Media Conference, which celebrated its 5th year in 2019.

October 1-3, 2019 | Reno, NV









Where does social media fit in with your communications plan before, during & after an emergency? 

S4SCON is designed to build a network of public safety communicators to explore everything from using social media for daily community outreach to using these networks during crisis for rumor control, sharing critical updates & sending needed help.

  • Access a strong network of your peers who understand the challenges - and opportunities - of social media.
  • Learn best practice tactics from agencies and experts who have successfully used social media to build digital communities and inform them during crisis.
  • Walk away with a framework for where social media fits in before, during & after emergencies.
