A campaign to illustrate their heroism
Suffolk County’s Department of Fire, Rescue and Emergency Services (FRES) found its base of volunteers shrinking. FRES needed a fresh and integrated campaign to attract new firefighters and EMTs for the county’s 130+ volunteer agencies.
We needed to find a way to market to a unique group of people. Courageous people. Committed people. In short, we were looking for heroes of varying ages and psychographics. We discovered they are truly heroes - heroes who do amazing work. This led to the driving message of the campaign; a call to arms to move these potential heroes into action: Volunteer to be Amazing.
Our strategy was to position our audience not as the potential volunteers they are but as the heroes they aspire to be. Using comic book-style illustrations, we developed a fully integrated ad campaign across several mediums, from print ads to posters, commercials to events and county bus wraps to digital and social saturation.
