Andrew Cuomo also welcomed home the state’s second team of 10 DEC Forest Rangers, staff, and volunteers, including Robert Rogers, Forest Ranger from Cattaraugus County.The crew has been helping battle and contain wildland fires raging in western states for the past two weeks. These trained, expert firefighters helped battle the Cameron Peak Fire near Red Feather Lakes, Colorado. Governor Cuomo also welcomed home three additional DEC Forest Rangers who assisted wildland firefighting efforts in California and Oregon.“We’ve all seen the devastation these wildfires have had on thousands of families out west who have lost everything,” Cuomo said. “I’m proud that these brave New Yorkers stepped up and traveled to the front lines to help suppress these fires before more homes and lives are lost. These brave men and women are the very definition of New York Tough.” The returning New York crew joined federal, state, and local fire agencies battling the Cameron Peak Fire in Colorado, which is about 20 percent contained. They were tasked with securing control lines. In addition, three DEC Forest Rangers assisted in fighting fires in California and Oregon. One Ranger was assigned to the Fork Fire burning in California’s El Dorado National Forest. Another Ranger helped fight flames in the Valley Fire in rural eastern San Diego County, and the third served as Task Force Leader for operations related to the Slater Fire in Oregon.All personnel and travel expenses for the New York crews are either paid directly by the U.S. Forest Service or reimbursed to New York State based on a mutual aid agreement between states and federal land agencies.last_img read more

first_imgWhat do Richard Branson, Marissa Mayer, and Arianna Huffington have in common? Sure, they lead successful companies, but they’re also leading social CEOs. Marketing strategist David Meerman Scott explains how socially engaged CEOs drive more business for their companies.The Power of Social CEOs | OpenView LabsWhen I speak with CEOs about generating attention for their business through real-time marketing and sales, most ask me how to staff for success in their companies. Very few CEOs ask the right question:How do I become a social CEO? Richard Branson, Marissa Mayer, and Arianna Huffington all have something in common. Not only are they CEOs of large organizations, they are also top executives on social media with a combined 6 million Twitter followers. I have had the social CEO discussion with leaders of smaller organizations and when done right, being social allows direct engagement with customers. And that connection helps drive business. Some connected CEOs include Gerard Vroomen of Open Cycle who blogs and tweets and answers emails from interested people and he’s quickly built several businesses based on his open philosophy. Greg Alexander, CEO of Sales Benchmark Index, a sales and marketing consultancy focused on helping B2B companies make the number, is very active on Twitter and also on his company’s blog. His real-time engagement strategies have helped his firm grow 50% through a switch from outbound to inbound marketingThe Power of #Social CEOs: An ExampleI recently had a lengthy discussion with Brian Halligan, HubSpot CEO about how he uses social media. [Disclaimer: Brian is a friend (we wrote Marketing Lessons from the Grateful Dead together), and I am a HubSpot advisor.] Brian says the Social CEO is a new breed of executive, and their businesses are benefiting because of it. Brian shared a fascinating correlation with me to prove his point.HubSpot grew by 50% in 2013 and by the end of the year the company served 10,595 customers in 56 countries.And get this: Twenty percent of the company’s new customers since 2011 have been influenced in the selling process by visiting Brian’s page on the HubSpot site. Twenty percent influenced – that’s an amazing statistic! brianstatWhat do people find when they go to your CEO’s bio page?Are there ways to connect via social networks like Twitter? Are there links to content they created? Or is there a boring resume of the dusty old degrees they earned decades ago? Share your thoughts in the comments!
