@Replies and Direct Messages

We  welcome  feedback  from  our  followers  and  will  try  to  join  the  conversation  where  possible.
However,  we  will  not  be  able  to  reply  individually  to  all  the  messages  we  receive  via  Twitter.  The best means of communicating a query to the Office of Emergency Planning is by availing of various contact options outlined here.


The OEP will only be operating the Twitter account during normal working hours.
Twitter may  occasionally  be  unavailable  and  we  accept  no  responsibility  for  lack  of  service  due  to Twitter downtime.
