The Philly Fire News is a daily email newsletter published by the Philadelphia Fire Department (PFD) that provides news, event information, and special events for the City of Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Fire Department looks at the latest updates from the Fire Department and reports on the latest firefighting information.
The new Philly Fire News has been online since October 2011. The newsletter has an average of approximately 900 subscribers per edition.
The Philly Fire News is the brainchild of the Fire Department’s media relations department. The newsletter was originally aimed at the fire department’s media, and thus the news that it provides is not always accurate. The newsletter aims to bring the fire department’s perspective to the public without being sensationalist. The newsletter is distributed through the fire department’s website, firedepartment.com.
The newsletter is no longer distributed through the website, but it still exists on an RSS feed.
