Why Responder Media?
Indie publishing is steadily growing in popularity, but there wasn't an option specifically designed for first responders — until now. Responder Media is the only company to offer self-publishing services specialized for emergency personnel. With unique publishing and marketing options, Responder Media focuses on EMS, firefighters and law enforcement by providing opportunities to promote your work to your fellow first responders online, in print and at events and expos.
Plus, we have options to tell your story that don’t require you to write your own book. With our Tribute packages, a Personal Historian will interview you, record your story and turn it into a professional hardcover book or HD video DVD.
We want to make sure that everyone has a chance to share their stories whether it’s through a manuscript you write yourself or through a personal interview compiled into a commemorative book or captured on film by professionals.
Some of the unique advantages of Responder Media include the following:
- Pass along emergency tips – Whether you publish a book or produce a video, you can teach others important lessons you've learned on the job.
- Advertise your work online – Choose advertising opportunities with the largest public safety websites, such as Firehouse.com, Officer.com and EMSWorld.com.
- Reach your target audience – Advertise your book as a print ad through unique marketing partnerships with Firehouse Magazine, EMS World Magazine or Law Enforcement Technology.
- Honor a leader – Commend exemplary service, celebrate retirees or honor those who have died in the line of duty.
- Commemorate your institution’s history and tradition – Tribute Books and Videos let you tell the story in your own words.
- Boost fundraising efforts – Increase funds for your organization by giving your community a glimpse inside the legacy and tradition of your unit or department by selling your book or playing your video at special events.
- Gain access to Hollywood – Your book could be adapted into a movie or television series through our Hollywood services where your idea is placed in front of agents, producers, directors and more.
The professionals at Responder Media are the most experienced in the indie-publishing industry. By giving you the most options with the best service, Responder Media can help you honor your story by turning it into something that you can keep for yourself, or use to reach your community and people around the world.
You’re here to serve others. We’re here to serve you. We make it easy to reach your storytelling goals.
