Fire company considering adding LED sign

The Whitehall Volunteer Fire Company is looking to add a LED digital video display board to the front of the firehouse for emergency and public announcements, fire company information and advertising from local merchants.

Members of the fire company feel such a sign could provide timely and important information to the public in addition to the local information channel available with cable TV service.

The fire company would also like to give 10 local merchants an opportunity to sponsor an ad on the board.

The board will be on 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, each ad will rotate at predetermined intervals, multiple times per hour.

The cost to each merchant will be $100 per year for a five year agreement. After five years those first 10 merchants that sign on will continue to advertise for free.

Merchants can design their own ads, which are recommended to be five seconds long, and will be displayed multiple times per hour day and night. Merchants can design multiple style ads for additional variety.

The highly visible, high-resolution LED sign will be 2’ x 4.5’ in size. The display will be mounted to the firehouse and will be visible from Skenesborough Drive and Broadway (Route 4). 

The LED sign is an Edison Digital Display manufactured by Fiberdyne Labs Inc. of Frankfort, N.Y.

Whitehall Volunteer Fire Company is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit and all donations are tax exempt.
