We recently did a bulk print for several agencies and a Rotary Club and wanted to share their custom covers and briefly describe how groups use our customizable books.
Since 1999 agencies, businesses and nonprofit organizations across the U.S. and Canada have used custom preparedness books as educational giveaways to employees, volunteers, customers and communities. They also make great gifts that show you care about your recipients’ health and well-being (esp. for the holidays!)
We discount our 266-page book 50% to 70% off list (as low as $4.50 U.S. each) and customize them for free — either in print process [1,000 units & up] .. OR .. with peel & stick labels using our standard red books in small quantity.
Some creative ways agencies, businesses and organizations use “IT’S A DISASTER!” …
- Agencies / First Responders = for staff, volunteers and local communities
- Banks & Credit unions = for new accounts and/or new home loans
- Civic Clubs, Chambers and Associations = for members, events, sponsors and communities
- Human Resources, Risk Management & Business Continuity Depts = for employees and contract workers
- Insurance companies = for new or existing policyholders
- Marketing & Sales Depts = for meetings or Conferences … or gifts to clients and customers
- Real estate / mortgage professionals = for new homebuyers or use as relocation gifts
- Utility companies = for customers / members, employees, and safety classes
Groups can change the entire book cover (including the title) and the first 12 pages can be personalized with emergency ph#s, marketing and safety data, advertisements or sponsorship information, or whatever you’d like … then books are all the same after the first 12 pages.
And a new feature we are now offering is a 48 page color glossy insert that can be bound into books for an up-charge (so up to 60 customizable pages) creating a very substantial personalized reference manual.
Agencies, businesses or nonprofits can use the color inserts to collaborate with local partners and offer coupons and savings to motivate the public while raising funds to sustain your projects. Collect anything you can for ads or sponsorship … cash, lines of credit, barter or trade … and keep it all since Fedhealth prints the ads for free. See some funding ideas here.
Below are some custom covers and pages from a few groups we recently printed books for and how they are using them in their respective communities. More samples are viewable here.
Rotary Club of McHenry County Sunrise
On September 28, 2013 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. the Rotary Club of McHenry-Sunrise will host the Disaster Response Appreciation Day at Petersen Park in McHenry, Illinois.
The Chasing4Life Team along with local organizations will present and demonstrate the role of a variety of response teams in the event of a disaster.
Some attractions at the event will include a portable disaster response command center and hospital, a K-9 demonstration, a drone equipped with a camera and thermal imaging technology to find missing persons and an exceptional attraction for kids. Children in attendance can maneuver their way out of a mock safety house during a simulated fire.
Admission will be free though donations will be welcome and encouraged. (RCOMS is selling their customized book direct to the public.)
Rotary Club of McHenry-Sunrise’s custom covers and several custom pages are wrapped around our 266-page preparedness and first aid manual.
Connecticut Region 2 Medical Reserve Corps
The Connecticut Region 2 Medical Reserve Corps Partners include Shoreline MRC, New Haven MRC, West Haven MRC, Wallingford MRC, Milford MRC and Naugatuck Valley MRC. The Region 2 Coordinator at East Shore District Health Department along with Naugatuck Valley Health District pooled funds to purchase books for their MRC volunteers.
CTMRC Region 2’s custom pages include information about Training, MRC Policies, Liability Protections, Volunteer Rights and Responsibilities, safety and more.
Albany County (New York)
In a May 30, 2013 press release (after the Albany County Sheriff’s Office initial purchase) Sheriff Craig Apple asked individuals or organizations who wished “to partner with ACSO in further productions of this important publication” to contact his office. The Albany County Health Department and County Executive Daniel McCoy joined forces with the Sheriff’s office to reprint more custom books for their community using some Homeland Security grant funds.
Standard red books with stickers
Remember … in small quantities and on rush orders we can always customize our standard red books with free peel and stick labels to convey your messages to your recipients.
