Consider this the “first” of many blog posts which will highlight the world of public safety. I’ve been a firefighter for almost 10 years now and I love every minute I get to spend working with my brothers and sisters at the firehouse and helping the community we protect each day.
Our website is really starting to take shape… What an exciting adventure it’s been over the last 6 months! I can’t believe how far its come in such a short amount of time. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, please do. And stay as long as you’d like!
We are offering several different promotions right now to allow our public safety personnel a chance to give the website a try–for free. If you are one of the first 5 ads created from your state, it’s free until January 1, 2013! And if you are one of the first 250 ads overall, you’ll be automatically entered into a drawing to win a brand new Apple iPad. That’s not so bad, right? Check out www.PoliceandFireforHire.com/current-promotions to see all of the details.
I am so thankful that we’ve had so many folks who have forwarded our information to their friends and colleagues who might benefit from advertising on our site. The website is built around trust–the fact that we trust each other and the citizens we protect trust us, too. If we can get a good group of police officers and firefighters to advertise on the website, we will be able to create a single website where we can search for and hire people we already trust with our lives.
Please continue to share information about the new website with your friends and family so we can continue to get the word out! If you know someone who is a firefighter or police officer and has a side-job, forward them a link to our site! Hopefully they will sign up to try it out and maybe even come away with a new iPad…
all the best, jlw
