What Fuels Your Fire? Radio Campaign Samples

The National Volunteer Workforce Solutions (VWS) program worked with iHeart Radio to recruit and raise awareness about the need for volunteers to fill various positions at their local volunteer or combination fire department. 

Below are examples of some of the advertisements that were used on various iHeart Radio channels across the country.

The team selected the best channels to feature the radio advertisement by utilizing the expertise of iHeart Radio and the findings from the department's custom GIS tapestry report.
