LOCAL UNION PR CAMPAIGN/PROJECT
First Place: "Power Through Participation"
Producer: Doug Baier
This multimedia project is a very powerful and comprehensive member orientation program. It gives an insight into the history of unionism and its benefits for professional fire fighters. The handbook along with the video contain brochures with details about local unions, membership services, local contracts, and what it means to be a union member. It's an excellent effort to involve new members and keep them for a lifetime.
Second Place: Self produced promotional tape
Producer: Mrk Vihetor and Tom Fieffer
This was a unique public relations effort by Portage's professional fire fighters. The video was self-produced and perfectly blends fire fighters' professionalism and humanity. It is a humorous yet effective promotion.
Second Place: "Child" and "Life Saver"
Producer: Roy Kimura
These two entries were short and to the point. They project fire fighters as life savers and as a welcome sight, and ask the community to support the fire fighter's cause and the local union's agenda.
