FIRST PLACE: "Olney
Stands Against Brownouts" and "What
Fire Fighters Do For You”|
Media Mobilizing Project produced two videos to call attention to
the public safety hazards associated with the ongoing rolling brownouts
in Philadelphia. “Olney Stands Against Brownouts” features a family who
lost two children in a house fire, a tragedy which may have been
prevented had the closest firehouse not been browned out at the time of
the fire. “What Fire Fighters Do For You” includes interviews with fire
fighter widows and Philadelphia citizens. Each interviewee talks about
the invaluable service fire fighters provide and express concern that
fire fighters do not have the resources they need to do the job.
