Minnesota Fire Chief Magazine Advertising Opportunities

This full-color, quarterly printed periodical is one of MSFCA’s primary communication vehicles among its readership. More than 1,700 individuals in the organization receive the magazine and over 200 subscribers sign up just to receive this benefit. Along with sharing association news and providing critical educational material to keep Minnesota’s fire service leadership up-to-date with the important information needed to administer a modern fire department and to provide effective fire protection for their communities, it’s one of the most visible ways for companies to showcase their products and services.

Ad-On Advertisements for Sponsors

If your 1- to 5-Bugle package doesn’t quite fit what you want to do for advertising throughout the year, Sponsorship Program participants may exchange the value of their package among the sizes and quantities of their placements in the Magazine and E-Newsletter however they like and may exchange them between the printed and electronic publications. However, should a sponsor want to increase the size and/or quantity and it results in a higher cost, that sponsorship package can be upgraded for that higher cost.

Example: a 4-Bugle sponsor receives 2-Full page ads in the magazine/directory for $800 each + 1 Half page ad for $400 = $2,000 in advertising, a total of 3 insertions. To upgrade to a Full page ad in each quarterly magazine it would be an additional $1,200 to bring that up to 4 insertions at $800 each.

Sustaining membership is available to corporations, companies, partnerships and any other organization in the fire equipment, prevention, suppression, detection, business and any other business interested in better fire protection.
