Nationwide vehicle wraps manufacturer JMR Graphics comments on an article discussing a northern Illinois fire district’s plan to sell advertisements on both fire trucks and ambulances to increase revenue

BOHEMIA, NY / / ACCESSWIRE ./ April 11, 2014 / JMR Graphics, a nationwide vehicle wraps manufacturer, responds to an article discussing how the northern Illinois fire district hopes to bring in around $25,000 through vehicle ads.

According to a March 26th article from Claims Journal titled “Illinois Fire Department to Sell Ads on Fire Trucks,” a northern Illinois fire district has decided to sell advertisement space on both its fire trucks and ambulances in order to raise money after local voters rejected a tax increase. Unfortunately, there was a 9% decline in funds for the fire districts in Illinois from 2012-2013, causing a loss in funds of almost $300,000. The fire department hopes to make approximately $25,000 in revenue from selling vehicle ad space.

Chad Drogos from Public Safety Advertising, which will handle the advertisements, has expressed that the advertisements will be family-friendly and reflect the values of the town and fire department.  Public Safety Advertising will receive a 15% commission on the advertisements. Fire Chief Hank Clemmensen will have the final say over what advertisements will be placed on the fire vehicles.

TJ Panell, a representative from nationwide vehicle wraps manufacturer JMR Graphics, says, “It is becoming more and more common for privately owned vehicles owners, like personal vehicles or school buses owners, to benefit from placing third party ads on their vehicles.  It creates a win-win situation in which the advertising brand gains exposure and the vehicle owners make extra money.”
