DALLAS, Texas–February 9, 2010–Critical Information Network (CiNet), an emerging eLearning company serving customers across the public safety, healthcare and industrial operations sectors, today announced that three members of the company’s production team have won Aegis Video and Film Production Awards for outstanding programming in the Training/Education category. Jennifer Woosley received two awards for her outstanding work as producer on the PULSE “Active Shooter” and FETN “Hurricane Ike” eLearning programs, while Mike Pope won as producer for the LETN “Intelligence-Led Policing: Fusion Centers” program. Videographer Eric Smith also won for his work on “Active Shooter”.
“We are honored that our talented production team has been recognized by the prestigious Aegis Awards program,” said Laura McGough, Director of Production at CiNet. “Our mission is to deliver high-quality training content that helps our customers work safer and more effectively, and this recognition means a great deal because it comes from our peers in the industry.”
The Aegis Awards is one of the premier video production competitions in the United States, and the only competition that features true peer judging by fellow producers, directors, cameramen, and editors.
CiNet’s “Active Shooter” training program is designed to provide EMS professionals with best practices for triage and treatment of patients with war-like trauma in an active shooter incident. To get the content right, Woosley brought in members of the Carrollton Police and Fire Departments to help recreate the types of obstacles and challenges responders face, and incorporated aspects of recent incidents, including the shootings at Fort Hood and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. This timely information, combined with the visual style and feel that Eric Smith provided as videographer, made the program a major success with EMS responders.
For “Hurricane Ike,” Woosley traveled to Galveston, Texas to document lessons learned in the aftermath of the category 2 hurricane. The program is part of CiNet’s American Heat series and includes interviews with officials that responded to over 60 structure fires and performed over 200 water rescues after the storm.
Pope’s work on “Intelligence-Led Policing: Fusion Centers” included interviews with officials with the Dallas and El Paso police departments and focused on intelligence and information sharing in response to domestic crime and international terrorism. The program has been very well received by the law enforcement community that is responding to new challenges in a post-9/11 world.
