FirstNet, Built with AT&T | Mental Wellness in EMS
Our production company was tapped to provide a full production crew for this full day shoot for FirstNet, built by AT&T, the nation’s first high-speed, wireless broadband network for first responders. It was a privilege to work with Fire Chief Bruce Evans and his team at the Upper Pine River Fire District to capture the first-hand stories of first responders right here in La Plata County.
EMS professionals are called to help people at some of the most difficult moments in their lives, and FirstNet has taken the initiative to help these heroes maintain their mental wellness in the face of what they see and hear on a daily basis. Our Director of Photography, Producer and Production Assistant coordinated with a remote producer at FirstNet on the shoot day, to capture broadcast quality footage of these important stories.
We also worked with the EMS team to recreate several first response scenes, and finally shipped the footage out next day to the internal editing team at FirstNet headquarters. Thanks to FirstNet for sharing the final product with us, and taking initiative on mental health in EMS.
