My name is John, and I want to make a website for your department. I grew up in a firefighting family. I understand the culture. When I make your site, I’m not going to confuse the ranks or refer to your QUINT (which is probably being used as an Engine thanks to NFPA standards) as a hook and ladder.
(Somerville actually runs a hook and ladder truck still, and it’s fairly new. Brookline’s Engine 1 is a QUINT.)
In the 1990s, just about every fire department got their own website.
Whether it was a folder on the city’s or town’s site or the FD’s very own dot-com, it was an amazing new embracing of history.
Trouble is, a lot of those websites haven’t been updated since then.
Money doesn’t grow on trees, but your police, fire, or municipal department can have a brand new website, done in WordPress, with a modern look. And we’ll teach you how to easily update the site yourself!

Website packages for police/sheriff’s departments
We follow the same basic structure for police and fire departments. For $500, you can have a basic website that tells people who you are and gets your message out to the community.
All packages include the creation of a department blog. Blogs like bpdnews.com here in Boston have become vital instruments of transparency and community involvement. Plus, they’re extremely easy to update once we set it up for you.
We offer custom packages for ambulance companies. We take a more corporate approach for private ambulance companies, letting people know where you’re based and what communities you service while providing corporate information and press release sections for the media and investors.
