Fire Education and the News.
Federal Emergency Management Agency, Washington, DC.
This program guide outlines the development of and provides guidelines for implementing a model community education project entitled: Fire Education and the News. Developed to encourage fire departments and local television stations to work together to produce in-depth new programing on fire safety, the Fire Education and the News program provides on-site technical assistance, telephone and written consultation, and financial support to local fire departments and news stations so that they can produce a locally-relevant fire safety mini-documentary. The following topics are discussed in the guide: the potential impact of the broadcasts, the background of the Fire Education and the News program, the way in which the program works, highlights of project-developed programs aired in 10 cities throughout the country, guidelines for organizing a similar program, and a sample day-to-day production schedule. Also included in the guide are sample publicity releases and procedures for use in evaluating the project's impact. (MN)
