Firefighter Recruitment Video



Rebuilding the Volunteer Fire Service with the SAFER Grant

Fire Companies across the nation are in trouble. Due to time constraints, increased demands, and training, it has become more difficult to recruit volunteer firefighters. Due to attrition, it is getting harder to respond to calls leaving both fire departments and the communities they serve in peril. Now more than ever, it’s imperative that local fire departments attract a new generation of firefighters to save lives and protect property or the volunteer fire service will die. Recruitment and Retention is a Priority. In response to this crisis, FEMA created the SAFER Grant initiative.

Video Production for Volunteer Firefighter Recruitment and Retention

The SAFER Grant enables fire companies to generate incentives like purchasing gear or offering college scholarships to attract new recruits. It also provides funding for producing recruitment tools, including videos. In the era of social media, a recruitment video is a vital means for community outreach, one that will showcase your station and attract new volunteers that have what it takes to become future firefighters.

Firefighter Recruitment Videos That Make A Difference

Kramer Communications Executive Producer Jeff Kramer, knows the fire service.

With his unique position as both an experienced, knowledgeable video producer and a member of the fire service community for over 24 years, he asks the right questions, collects the right content and captures powerful visuals from drills and actual incidents to create a compelling story about your fire department. He will create a Firefighter Recruitment Video that will make a difference, and bring new recruits to your door.
