Fire, EMS, and Police Bloggers are Becoming Spokespersons for Products and Services


Sure, having busty tall blonde booth babes works very well too. But that typically just gets guys to stop and stare for a little while. Having a personality that many people know prior to the show in your booth can be an even bigger draw. Plus, what do those booth babes know about your product?

Once they leave the show they aren't going to write about the fun they had, the people they met, publish pictures from your booth, or any of that.

Statter on The Fire Critic “You are Right, You are Wrong”. Make up your mind! Plus Firefighter Netcast and Audio from South Fulton

Dave mentions that I am right about everything...but then says I am wrong. Make up your mind Dave. You know I am right, everyone knows I am right. I am not putting the spin on it that everyone else is. Hell Dave, I keep reading this post of yours (here) and I am beginning to think you might have multiple personalities.

It is hard to follow.
