Columbus Fire and Rescue Puts Its Business In The Streets and Takes Its Messages On The Road

Post Date:03/08/2016 1:36 PM

Columbus, Miss - Columbus Fire and Rescue, in an attempt to find unconventional ways to spread its fire and life safety messages, has purchased a revolutionary mobile digital display (a moving digital billboard for vehicles). The display mounts to the trailer hitch receiver on the back of a vehicle and can display as many digital advertising images and/or videos as needed, day or night. It also comes with a display stand for use at public events, tradeshows, and classroom settings. The images can be set to change every 2 seconds up to every 24 hours. The images and video may be uploaded anywhere and at any time with included software via computer, laptop, or cell phone.

The display will be mounted to the department’s Public Relations and Education Officer’s vehicle (FD7), and will display messages such as Pull To The Right For Sirens and Lights, Smoke Alarms Save Lives, Parking in a Fire Lane is Against The Law and a $50 Fine, and many others. “We want to be a forward-thinking department that thinks outside the box,” says Fire Chief Martin Andrews.

 

The unit will be on the vehicle and on display at Fire Station One Monday, March 7, 2016 at 11am.
