Welcome To The New Task Force Communications Platform

June 1, 2022 – A new visual identity, a monthly E-newsletter, social media and a beautiful, content-rich new website. It’s all part of a comprehensive communications platform for the Task Force that launched on June 1, 2022.

The Website

It all starts here, with the new website, built to deliver on two primary goals. First, to clearly articulate the purpose of the Task Force. For those unfamiliar or seeking to better understand, the Home Page and About section define the mission, structure, and initiatives of the Task Force.

Second, and no less important, is to show the progress being made by state, federal, local and tribal governments along with a wide range of other Task Force partners. The website is a a single hub for original content from the Task Force along with curated information sourced from partner agencies. It provides easy access to the very latest information that demonstrates tangible, boots on the ground progress on Task Force Goals and Key Action Areas.

You’ll find The Latest section on the Home Page, with an aggregation of the most recent progress and important stories. Below that, and also on the Progress Page, you can sort content by Task Force Goals and Action Areas.

We hope you’ll bookmark and come back to the site often. The news, information, and stories will be updated frequently.

The E-Newsletter

The first week of every month, the Task Force will send out an E-newsletter to all subscribers. Signing up for the E-newsletter is a great way to make sure you’re getting regular updates on the very latest progress. Look for the Sign-Up Form below on this page. When the E-newsletter comes, be sure to forward it on to others who may want to subscribe.

Social Media

The Task Force now has a presence on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter. We hope you’ll follow the Task Force social channels and engage with the content, then share Task Force social content on your social media and encourage others to follow. When appropriate, include the hashtag: #wildfiretaskforce.

“It’s all about showing progress,” according to Task Force Director Patrick Wright. “The new site is a one-stop-shop for the latest, boots-on-the-ground accomplishments, and we’re very pleased with how it came together.” Task Force Program Manager Kristen Merrill worked closely with the Communications Work Group and turned to Sonoma County creative communications agency The Idea Cooperative to develop the website, updated visual identity and online marketing materials.
