Video Tips

Video: Move to the Right for Red Lights and Sirens

Great Public Service Announcement video from Tuscaloosa Fire & Rescue Service, Alabama. I like this video because it:

1. Addresses a common frustration of emergency vehicle operators.

2. Involves department members in the production.

3. Uses a social media channel, YouTube, to broadly distribute the message – inside and outside of their service area.

4. Can be recreated by fire departments and EMS agencies everywhere.
