David Menken spoke to the Westchester County Association of Fire Districts on August 26, 2015 on legal issues involving fire department use of social media.  His presentation focused on two areas, (1) First Amendment issues and the ability of departments to regulate members’ use of social media when it impacts the department, and (2) compliance with good government laws such as the Freedom of Information Act and the Open Meetings Law.  David advises volunteer fire departments and ambulance corps on social media, privacy and security issues and can be contacted at dmenken@sbjlaw.com.
