Middlewich Fire Station

Coronavirus has stopped life, as we knew it, in its tracks and this has meant that many organisations and businesses have resorted to using the power of online video to showcase their content. I was contacted by the team at Middlewich Fire Station to assist with editing together a series of short films that would be posted on its social media channels, showing off just some of the heroic work they have to under-take. It provides a real insight into how they operate and how they help people at some of the darkest moments of their lives. I even had the opportunity to step into the shoes of a firefighter - quite literally!

Middlewich Fire Station
Virtual Open Day, 2020

Usually in July, Middlewich Fire Station would be busy preparing to throw open its doors and showcase the important work they do in the community, during Middlewich's extremely popular Folk & Boat Festival. Coronavirus has somewhat changed that dramatically this year, but that won't stop the station showing off their work, to the people they protect. Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service, along with many other government agencies have optimised the use of social media to share what it does with the people they serve. On Saturday 1 August, 2020 - Middlewich Fire Station will publish a series of films, shot by the firefighters themselves, inviting their followers to take a glimpse at what they do best. It might not be the same as face-to-face, but an organisation that prides itself of protecting people and saving lives, this is a situation they have to adapt to.
