Brian Williams Fire Corps PSA Available Online

Saturday, 05 January 2008

Brian Williams, Anchor and Managing Editor of NBC Nightly News, recorded a video public service announcement (PSA) for Fire Corps. The 30-second spot informs the public that they can help their local fire and EMS departments by performing important non-emergency tasks.

“As a former volunteer firefighter, I know fire departments around this country need your help with fundraising, education, promotions, and other non-emergency tasks,” Williams says in the message. He then refers listeners to the Fire Corps web site at to learn more and to find a local program.

Williams donated his time and resources to develop the PSA, which is currently running on TV stations across the country. The PSA can also be viewed online on the Fire Corps web site at and on YouTube at Consider linking your department or Fire Corps program web site to the PSA or submitting the PSA to your local television stations to help spread this important message.
