... what the "group" is all about... we have one response:
it's about you, our clients.
Fire Department Calendars help local fire departments work with business' to promote their community and collectively support everyone.
...from before the beginning of my 16+ years in the volunteer fire service, I have understood the need of community involvement and the "job done right" attitude. It is with great honor and pride that I have been Designing and producing fire department community-based calendars for many years.
As a complete Community-based Marketing resource, your fire department can deliver a high quality product that your neighbors will be talking about all year long.... and its an economically feasible solution to help support your emergency services district.
I know the tight annual budget constraints that are put on us as members of our respected districts. That being said, I have been able to put together a calendar package that primarily pays for itself within the cost of advertising spaces taken out by supporting community businesses.
The following package pricing structure allows for advertising space as shown. (*prices may vary slightly annually, please call ahead for a quote)
- Full-Color 13-Month Calendar: based upon a quantity of 1,000 - 1,250
- 9" x 11" (22" height as open) - (see examples shown: New Salem Fire Dept. and Ravena Hose Company #1)
