BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Law enforcement agencies across the country are using twitter to provide followers with new information.

Now, Brunswick County Emergency Services are starting to use the social media tool.

Fire Marshall Scott Garner set up a Twitter account about a week ago to try out the new tool.  They will send tweets when something important happens like road closures and updates on hurricanes.

Garner said twitter is an important tool and is a great way to keep the public informed.
