The California Highway Patrol is embracing social media as a way to communicate with the general public. Statewide the Department has been using Facebook and other avenues to distribute information. The Grass Valley Office has been preparing to do the same.
Public Information Officer Greg Tassone says the Grass Valley office is starting with two social media extensions.
Tassone anticipates social media to be a quick efficient way to get information out during snowy or icy weather when local travel and schools are directly impacted.
