Building Public - Private Partnerships
If we are going to create a preparedness culture and save lives, we must be men and women of action.
We must lead change. We must lead people. We must build coalitions. In order for pre-disaster mitigation to be effective we need business heroes and families to engage and participate in the development of
our preparedness messaging network.
The Home Depot Foundation works alongside its national nonprofit partners, including Operation Blessing and Convoy of Hope, to fortify warehouses across the nation with relief supplies ahead of disaster season.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Spring is right around the corner and Domino’s Pizza(R) (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, announced today its spring fire safety campaign to encourage customers to focus on safety in the home — the company will utilize its pizza boxes to deliver the message of preventing cooking fires.
“Domino’s makes about 1 million deliveries each day – so we reach a lot of people in their homes, where fire safety and preparedness begins. As always, we are excited to continue our partnership with the NFPA and to be able to use our network of delivery experts to hopefully make homes across the country a little safer.”
NFPA and Domino's are teaming up for their 15th year of Fire Protection Week (FPW) campaign. This year's theme is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety™.”
It works to educate everyone about the sounds smoke alarms make, what those sounds mean, and how to respond to them. Partnering with Domino’s presents a fun and powerful way to reinforce preparedness messaging.
The AR preparedness messaging network is a first-of-its-kind that expands the collaborative abilities of our business heroes, through adaptive context designed for user interaction and participatory functions cultivating awareness.
After closely examining the consumer base of our business heroes, it is exceedingly important to assign a spokesperson to communicate a preparedness messaging overview to each aspect of citizenry. The spokesperson in this case takes on the form of an “Augmented Reality App” for handheld devices.
Former FEMA Administrator Brock Long stated, "We do not Have a Culture of Preparedness in America"
Construct a Public-Relations Partnership including but limited to Home Depot,
the National Fire Protection Association, Domino's, and FirstLine TaskForce.
1. Research and planning of a comprehensive narrative that positions our preparedness theme into the center of business and product cultures.
2. The development of an AR (Augmented Reality) App and a Virtual Private Network (VPN). The app encompasses all aspects of edutainment, animation, and 3D augmented reality experiences. The VPN offers a secure network for our membership.
3. Branding the concept of “Business Heroes.” Business Heroes using the AR app can attach preparedness theme-based messages to their product labels supporting the initiative that “Everyone is a First Responder.”
4. Developing an interactive, engaging, and participatory “Maze Playground for Preparedness Pals.” The Maze for Prep Pals is a marketing funnel for Business Heroes and their products. Business Heroes bolster the incentives and rewards initiative causing our Preparedness Pals to come back to the Maze Playground again and again for more AR experiences and goodies.,
5. The final product represents creativity in public relations based on AR technology, product cultures, preparedness principles and Business Heroes. The preparedness theme is the perfect convergence between the “what to say” and the “how to say”: an edutainment preparedness message that is in sync with the issues at hand as well as relevancy to business heroes, their markets, and crafted in a way that gets the distinction, the attention, the awe, the interest, the sympathy culminating in a desire to participate and engage in.
Home Depot, the National Fire Protection Association, Domino’s, and FirstLine Task Force control mission critical capacities needed to build a pathway for a Culture of Preparedness in America.
Our spokesperson takes the form of an “Augmented Reality App” for handheld devices. The AR app is a first-of-its-kind expanding the collective abilities of our business heroes.

Preparedness only occurs when the citizenry is ready and willing to receive qualified preparedness
information and training.
FirstLine was founded on the principles of disaster mitigation, prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery. However, today the reality is knowing that public sectors have completely failed at every turn regarding community resiliency.
Preparedness only occurs when the citizenry is ready and willing to receive qualified preparedness information and training. Emergency Managers have dealt with a multitude of challenges over the past century and it’s undeniable that their efforts have fallen short.
These EM’s have constantly faced massive push back from an audience that has been desensitized for decades by a complete lack of inspirational platforms. When we consider the cultural diversity of our communities it’s easy to concede that preparedness messaging needs a comprehensive overhaul.
FirstLine’s AR preparedness messaging concepts articulate visualizations that resonate universally to businesses, individuals, and families.
Our group of Business Heroes have the perfect platform for recruiting "App Users."
Considering the frequency of foot-traffic by patrons pursuing consumable pizza products from Domino's and or the off the shelf / big box products at Home Depot, and the NFPA 50,000 business and individual memberships; represents over a
"Billion connections or app invitations a year."
App's no matter what the market may be require a means to attract and recruit end users. More importantly however, app platform's must keep their end users engaged and participatory or suffer the fate of "I'm Not Interested."
In the market place brand, longevity, price, quality and community involvement greatly determines the
"Pro's and Con's" of return customer's.
The same concepts apply to app users.
Our Business Heroes for more than a generation of branding products and services have created a presence/or theme for mitigation principles and preparedness messaging.

The FirstLine App is an interactive and participatory AR edutainment platform elevating marketing and branding pathways that are designed to engage and
involve individuals and businesses.
