  • 21. Ten Ways Not to Get Fired Over Social Media 21 1. Dont post inappropriate pictures or images It may go without saying, but EMS employers, patients or public officials do not want to see pictures of you in an intoxicated state or doing really stupid things • Certainly you should not post pictures of patients or post comments about them.Company Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Info Goes Here Just LikeThis
  • 22. Ten Ways Not To Get Fired Over Social Media 22 • 2. Dont complain about your job, supervisors, or co-workers in a public forum Any negative comments about your EMS agency or co-workers (even if not specifically named) should generally not be posted. These comments reflect poorly on you, the organization, and the persons that you criticize. • Negative and derogatory comments can also lead to claims of defamation and slanderCompany Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Info Goes Here Just LikeThis
  • 23. Ten Ways Not To Get Fired Over Social Media 23 3. Dont post inappropriate "statuses" Avoid any status updates that discuss patient care situations, your EMS agency, or other staff members, or that may implicate unprofessional conduct. Statuses that imply you or others are unreliable, dishonest, deceitful, or unprofessional may jeopardize your employment status.Company Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Info Goes Here Just LikeThis
  • 24. Ten Ways Not To Get Fired Over Social Media 24 4. Be particular about your "friends" and associations You cant control what your friends post to your profile (although you can remove it once you see it), nor what they post to their own profiles or to those of mutual friends. For example, pictures your friend has tagged you in where he is falling down drunk, and you look intoxicated as well reflect poorly on you, even if you are not the direct focus of the image. You are who your friends are!Company Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Info Goes Here Just LikeThis
  • 25. Ten Ways Not To Get Fired Over Social Media 25 5.Check your privacy and security settings and know their rules Privacy and security settings on social networking sites can be confusing and hard to deal with. • At the very least, your profile should be set so that people who are not your friend cannot see any of your pictures or profile information.Company Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Info Goes Here Just LikeThis
  • 26. Ten Ways Not To Get Fired Over Social Media 26 6. Consider establishing a "professional" profile page The best advice is to lock down your personal profile so that only friends you approve can see anything on that profile. • Having a social networking profile is a good thing — it presents you as technologically and professionally savvy. Just make sure your profile is helping to present your best side — not the side that got drunk at your friends party last week.Company Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Info Goes Here Just LikeThis
  • 27. Ten Ways Not To Get Fired Over Social Media 27 7. Dont use social networking while engaged in patient care or work activities Access to social networking sites on your personal device should only occur in absolute down time as you would use a personal cell phone when on duty (if this is permitted by your agency). • An improper activity would be a status posting made from the back of an ambulance with a patient onboard such as: "Bored, Transporting another GOMER from the Nursing Home to ABC Hospital.‖Company Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Info Goes Here Just LikeThis
  • 28. Ten Ways Not To Get Fired Over Social Media 28 8. Dont misrepresent yourself or others You should be careful that what you post about your training and education is accurate and consistent with information you have given to your EMS agency. Your agency has the right to check out statements you may make from a variety of sources, including your social networking profile. • For example, if you call in sick and later that day you post a status that says "Off to the beach for the day to go surfing" and the company is made aware of it, you can expect them to investigate this further and initiate corrective action where appropriate.Company Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Info Goes Here Just LikeThis
  • 29. Ten Ways Not To Get Fired Over Social Media 29 9. Be who you are Some posters and bloggers work anonymously, using false screen names. That is usually not a good idea. Transparency and honesty are the best policies to follow. Hiding behind a "handle" name may embolden you to post things you would not ordinarily post (and against your better judgment!). 10. Respect copyright and fair use laws For your EMS agencys protection as well as your own, it is critical that you respect laws governing copyright and fair use of copyrighted material owned by others, including your EMS agencys copyrights, logos or images.Company Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Info Goes Here Just LikeThis
  • 30. Does Your Service Have a Written Social Media 30 Policy? • No- Then get one! • Yes- Make sure it covers everything, but don’t make it too strict. • Make sure ALL employees have read and understand itCompany Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Info Goes Here Just LikeThis
  • 31. Does Your Department or Service Have a Social 31 Media Presence? • It’s a great way to let your presence be known • Great tool to get out public safety announcements • Lets you update employees quickly • Awesome recruitment toolCompany Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Info Goes Here Just LikeThis

Facebook is not the Devil! 35 • Think before you post! • You can say whatever you want! • You will be held accountable for what you write! • Remember just because you think nobody can see it, doesn’t mean they won’t • Have Fun!Company Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Info Goes Here Just LikeThis
