FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Fairfield's bravest are stars in an online public service announcement created by students and others in the School of Communications & Media Arts at Sacred Heart University.
The video highlights the Fairfield Fire Department's dedication to the town. The focus is important jobs firefighters tackle in the 32-square-mile town.
Professors Richard Falco and Gregory Golda, graduate student Sean Elliott and SHU alumnus Manny Santiago produced the PSA.
Falco said it will allow the fire department "to better inform the community, to help them in terms of media—since they do not have the means to create this on their own—and give them some quality content they can use."
The short shows some of the services provided by the fire department and has useful information like when to change batteries in smoke detectors and directions on how to escape a house fire.
“This is our way of connecting with and contributing to the community. It is directly related to Sacred Heart University’s mission and is very much in line with who we are and what we do. Because the fire department is such an essential component in terms of service here in Fairfield, I thought that this opportunity would be beneficial for all involved,” said Falco.
