Scottish Fire and Rescue Service in Partnership with 3TFM Community Radio
Scottish Fire and Rescue Service have entered into a partnership initiative with 3TFM Community Radio who provide a community based service for the three towns of Ardrossan,Saltcoats and Stevenston.
Ardrossan Station Manager Derek Davidson approached 3TFM boss Louis Ferguson to assist with relaying safety messages from the Fire & Rescue Service to the local community members in an effort to fulfil various demand reduction strategies which the organisation have in place.
Louis was delighted to become involved with a high profile organisation like SFRS and utilising his experience and skills in the broadcasting business and working together with SM Davidson has resulted in four safety messages to date being broadcast over the 3TFM airwaves throughout the day and night.
The recordings cover the subjects of Secondary Fires,Home Fire Safety Visits,Safe Cooking and Water Safety.
SM Davidson provided the voice overs for the broadcastings and Louis adapted and edited to suit while adding some “signature” music which will make the messages easily recognisable and linked by the local listeners to SFRS.
Louis said “When Derek approached me to work in partnership I jumped at the chance. Our aim is to provide local information for local people and there is no better way to do that than by working in conjunction with a large organisation that has the best interests of the local community at heart.The safety messages have been broadcast for a few weeks now and I’m receiving very favourable feedback relating to them from a number of people including local elected members. Derek was worried about his “recording voice” but I assured him the best way to get the safety information across successfull was to use an authentic accent and dialect local to the area that people can indentify with. After all our station motto is ” Keeping it real ….and making you smile in the three towns”
SM Davidson said” Engagement with the members of the local community is critical if we are to improve the safety of individuals,families and businesses in the area.Louis Ferguson and 3TFM Radio have provided a platform where our educational messages can be relayed to a wide audience on a regular basis and hopefully to those we have not yet reached. Louis has already agreed to undertake further initiatives with the organisation throughout the year and that can only be beneficial for all involved” 3TFM Can be heard on 103.1FM and online at www.3tfm.org.
