2020 March-April : UNIT SURVIVAL GUIDE: ENSURING YOUR OPERATION’S SUCCESS THROUGH MARKETING

Public safety aviation units provide invaluable service to the departments and communities they serve, however, often out of sight and out of mind. So, when dollars get tight, these units are often one of the first places considered for cuts. The best way to guarantee survival is to create and maintain a constant awareness and appreciation of the value public safety aviation provides to the community. This issue serves as a primer on developing a well-orchestrated marketing campaign to those inside the department and the citizens they serve. Additionally, we profile our corporate members providing aircraft air and fluid filtration.
