The Elkin NC Fire Department contracted with First Arriving, a full service marketing team focused on Volunteer Fire & EMS, to create a recruitment video that showcased the similarities between serving your country and serving your community.
Elkin highlighted two of their newest members: Derrick Cordova, a retired US Marine and John Hogan, a US Army National Guardsman who shared how the fire department gave them a sense of value and of belonging; and filled their need for camaraderie and action that they missed from active duty.
Watch the video here:
Derrick’s wife Denise talks about how their fire department welcomed their military family into their fire service family in this video:
Congratulations to the Elkin Fire Department on creating great videos and sharing the SoldierFirefighter message that connecting veterans with the volunteer fire service is a win for everyone. Watch all their recruitment videos here: https://vimeo.com/showcase/8058275.
