Streaming Videos is not the wave of the future, it is the norm; and it is 24/7.
The Broadcast of 13 shows in 13 weeks; un-presidented in our industry.
A Broadcast Story about our Streaming Videos in September 2013, this is how we use viral vides to get over One-Half-Million- Viewers in a short period of time. Not even the major production companies on television produce "13 Shows in 13 Weeks.” This was an amazing run with video-webisodes from across of North America as well as our 9/11 Dedication Special.
Streaming Videos is where you find most of the eyeballs these days as you know; we have been streaming videos on most every video venue platform since 2008. Not only the young firefighters, but also some of the older seasoned firefighters have caught up to technology of computers and the Internet.
Every Chief and decision maker uses the Internet to Source the needs for their department and their family.
Most professionals for several years as well as Officers have used LinkedIn and now Professional 1st Responders and young men and women wanting to join the ranks are on LinkedIn.
Facebook has become more of a personal family venue and the fire service is a Family, we just launched a new “Firefighter Series” page on Face book now being managed by one of our new Producers.
Our current Twitter handle: “The_Battalion” has grown organically over the past few years to over 5,000 followers; we plan to find more time in 2016 to leverage this platform.
We use nearly all of social-media platforms, and continue to gain knowledge and the staff to leverage all of their capabilities.

A SHORT WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT STORY:
Our team started the development of our new website on November of 2014 in hopes of launching in February of 2015. The challenge was overwhelming. We found it took a total of 16 hours to convert each of our shows that were in 520P, a low resolution, to full HD for our new website, with 170 videos, this process ran 24/7 from November to September of 2015, creating the website, that’s a different story and all will be told on the new Tule Fog Productions web-site in the coming moths

Additional DISTRIBUTION IN 2016
VIDEO STREAMING HAS CAPTURED THE WORLD:
Times have changed as to the nature of the Internet and how its Users use it. People in general are longer going to websites that overwhelm their eyes with flashing banners ads, in fact, most know how to turn them off in their Google Browser, used by 90% of the public, using GOOGLE’S AD BLOCK.
Peel back pages and drop-down pages are very annoying to most.
OUR OBSERVATIONS ON-SET:
We film with hundreds of firefighters and we do watch and log their habits. Our studies have shown, AND, we poled over 200 firefighters while filming since 2014; they are not clicking on banner ads to find anything; do you? We do find the firefighters sitting around with their face in their phone, and independent studies show they are watching videos, very view take the time to read data.
We believe that banner ads are slowly going away, and for now; we call ours “Battalion Wall Ads” and we believe that a photo of your product works best in this “Brand Marketing” arena.
A quote from marketing at both Honeywell and KME, “we have not used banner advertisements for nearly two years”. You have an opportunity to Brand your company with the hottest thing to support the fire service in years. The new young upcoming firefighters and 1st Responders are no longer reading magazines.
The young firefighters that found us back in 2007 and 2008, such as the firefighters in Prince Georges County Fire/EMS, are now Captains.
In the Case of Fire Chief Jason Robitille, the Chief of the Consolidated Fire Department in California, one of our new series, he is also one of our trainers, we found out when we started filming his department…he’s been a fan for years.
On-the-road: Our New Website has a featured “Production Channel” where viewers can watch the crew as they set up to film and in some cases, may be able to watch them film with departments across North America.
