Thomasville Fire Rescue has launched an official Facebook page meant to share safety information, tips for making homes safer, and more.

In an email statement, Thomasville Fire Rescue Chief Tim Connell said the page surpassed 500 likes and followers within 48 hours of it going live. He said the goal is to get more than 18,000 followers to "maximize the dissemination of public safety information."

Connell also said the page would serve as a behind-the-scenes look at Thomasville Fire Rescue (TFR).

"We view the new Facebook page as a communication tool that will help familiarize Thomasville residents with the important work TFR does to keep our community safe, as well as a way to interact with our team outside of emergency situations," Connell said.

The page can be followed here.
