Central Virginia Firefighter's Association Holds a Video Contest

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA--A group of local fire departments is starting a social media movement to raise awareness about what exactly they're doing for their communities. The group behind the movement is the Central Virginia Firefighter's Association.

Departments use Facebook to keep the public up to date on what firefighters do on a daily basis. Now the Firefighter's Association is trying to gain more interest by holding a video contest. Each department has posted a video on the Association's Facebook page, and viewers can pick the winner by "liking" their favorite video. Organizers of the contest say it's already been a success.

"It's good for the communities to know what their fire departments are doing. It's great representation for the departments also it's a good recruitment and retention tool for them. So people can see what they're doing and younger people or newer people can come join those departments when they can," said Kenny Kirby, President of the Central Virginia Firefighter's Association.

Votes for the videos will be accepted until April.
