MOUNT PLEASANT, SOUTH CAROLINA (April 7, 2015) – The Town of Mount Pleasant was recently awarded Honorable Mention in the Ragan’s 2014 Employee Communications Awards for Best Informational or Educational Video. The winning Fire Department CPR/AED video earned accolades for sharing life-saving techniques in innovative and creative ways.
“I would like to congratulate the Fire Department and the Communications Office for producing a video that competed with fortune 500 companies across the world and earned such a distinguished mention,” said Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page. “This video is part of an employee-driven public service announcement campaign focusing on all facets of public safety that is recognized for internal communications excellence.”
“Promoting the value of public service and preserving employee satisfaction through effective internal communications is an essential component to building a positive corporate culture and to enhancing employee morale and productivity,” said Fire Chief Herb Williams. “The video is part of a comprehensive plan to promote to employees the mission and core values of the organization by seizing every opportunity to demonstrate the importance and value of public service.”
“The CPR/AED video pulled on the talents of a transportation engineer, an administrative services coordinator, a government outreach officer, a special events coordinator, a landscape architect and two paramedics to take ownership of the narrative,” said Martine Wolfe-Miller, Communications Officer. “The CPR/AED video is part of a public service announcement campaign made by employees for employees. These low budget productions showcase real people, sharing real messages with a touch of humanity and a dash of humor.”
