The Challenge:

The Spokane Valley Fire Department serves a 75 square mile response area with 10 stations, a fleet maintenance and training center, and an administrative building. As an outreach website, the site was not user-friendly and did not showcase all the good works of the fire department in the best light.

The Solution:

Create a beautiful presence that was sleek, smart, fast, and designed for engagement with the community. The new WordPress site features: • A robust event planning system from EventOn • An accessibility widget that helps with contrast and font sizes • A Survey Monkey integration • Sleekly designed forms using Ninja Forms • A custom-built incident feed integration • A beautiful and easy to read, news section • Video and Photo gallery via Foo Galleries • Google site translation for Russian & Spanish
