The Rock Solid Safety Team is a group of dedicated firefighters that put together a program every year for schools in the Round Rock area. The program offers safety information to the kids and teachers in a fun and entertaining way.
Last year, the Star Wars themed program was well received by the kids and teachers. Enrollment for the 2014-2015 RRISD elementary schools we visited was over 14.000 students, so we were able to reach quite a few families. Students learned from Virgne Solo, Princess Jody, Master Yoda’s second cousin twice removed Master Yo Heard, Jedi Bon Bon Bonney, Chewy Clifton, Firefighter Foster, and Officer Clay Pool about Smoke Alarms, Helmets & Bullying. Parents, teachers and students alike were up on their feet for the grand finale song, EDITH ( exit drills in the home ) which had them clapping in time to the beat … of safety! (Special guest appearances were made by the nefarious Sith Lord, Darth Mix it up Wagner, who had the sound control of his own!)
We continue to be honored by the different agencies that oversee quality in video and marketing for the city.
At the TATOA (Texas Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors) conference held in November 2014 in Austin, the City took home the first place trophy for Overall Excellence in Programming. Our Video Text Bulletin Board also took first place.
We got a second and third for Use of Humor for the Fire Department’s Talkin’ Turkey and Talkin’ Trees videos. Finally, the Fire Department’s Night Extraction video got third in the Documentary category.
