Hello Virginia Firefighters:
As you know fire departments across the country vary widely in size and resources, but every department understands the value of reaching the community with fire safety information. What better way to reach large numbers of residents than through newspapers, radio programs, and local television news?
QUICK RESPONSE – a free program of the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) - invites all fire service personnel to join the QUICK RESPONSE Media Corps. The USFA will provide QRMC members with periodic e-mail bulletins with tips on media outreach and other support to this group of firefighters interested in taking a more pro-active role with local media, especially when those "teachable moments" occur soon after residential fire deaths. QRMC members are the first to know about ongoing and future public education campaigns from the USFA.
To join USFA's free QUICK RESPONSE Media Corps, please fill join online at: http://www.usfa.dhs.gov/fireservice/subjects/fireprev/qr/mediacorps/index.shtm.
QUICK RESPONSE MEDIA CORPS IS A NO-COST PROGRAM OF THE UNITED STATES FIRE ADMINISTRATION (DHS/FEMA).
Please copy this message into an e-mail and forward to your colleagues and neighboring fire departments!
Should you have any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
