I am a former volunteer firefighter/EMT for 8 years, until I was injured. Always kept the fire service close to me. Worked for over 20 years to produce several reality shows about the fire service and one limited- series drama, with a real major city, who is on board if we could produce our pilot.
So, in 2016, friends on social media encouraged me to start a podcast for the fire service and other first responders. Currently, we're about to begin our fifth season on our podcast, "5-Alarm Task Force!"
Prior to our current project, my partners and I produced a pilot for a true-to-life show, “America’s Heroes: The Men & Women of Fire Rescue,” back in 2000. We presented twelve stories of dramatic, real-life rescues, with on-scene b-roll and stories "in their own words" from key first responders who answered these calls. They are not re-creations. All the action scenes were recorded as they happened. And it is as viable today as it was then. It is still available for viewing. If you are interested, please contact me and I will be happy to share the link with you.
