Is it worth publishing the Chabot College Fire & EMS newsletter in the future???
In today's world of "I have to have it now," that so many subscribe to, nothing personal, just stating the obvious, I'm wondering about the need and relevance of continuing with a newsletter every other month (give or take). It takes a lot of time and energy to put together each of the newsletters, and while I try to give my best to each one, I know there is so much more I could and should be doing, especially in the way of the actual design, content, layout, etc.
The problem with the newsletter is the latest and greatest and time sensitive information is usually not there. If something is time sensitive or a news flash per se, I'll post it on one or more of the following communication mechanisms:
- The Future Firefighter: https://www.facebook.com/TheFutureFirefighter/
- The Future Fireghter's Preparation Guide Book: https://www.facebook.com/FutureFirefightersPreparationGuide/
- Reach for the Firefighter Badge Book: https://www.facebook.com/ReachForTheFirefighterBadge/
- How to Excel at Fire Department Promotional Exams Book: https://www.facebook.com/HowToExcelAtFireDepartmentPromotionalExams/
So my question to you....if the newsletter was no longer printed, or only printed a few times a year, would it even matter to you? Especially if I am communicating through the above mechanisms when I have the time and energy. Sometimes I wonder if anyone is even reading the information, whether it actually makes a difference, and whether it is assisting others, even if in a small way.
Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any thoughts you may have. I value any and all feedback, and it will help me best decide how to continue to provide some valuable information to current and future firefighters. Thank you! Steve Prziborowski
