Gunnison Valley Health Foundation contracted Blaze in 2021 for help with marketing and community outreach to support a $10 million capital campaign to address a critical need for a new station for Gunnison Valley Health Paramedics.

Blaze created the campaign slogan Seconds Save Lives  to highlight that the improvements of a new station, including sleeping quarters for after-hours responders, will greatly improve response time to 911 calls – saving lives. Blaze has also created a case statement, FAQ’s brochure, annual advertising and PR campaigns, promotional videos and donor materials, as well as website and social media content to create public awareness and inspire charitable support for the campaign.


Now in its second year, the campaign is over halfway to the fundraising goal, and the plan is to break ground in 2023.
