Founded in 2014 @LiveBoston617 was started as a way for First Responders in the Boston Area to stay informed about current incidents and share images of them. In 2017 it was expanded to include our now popular Twitter account to the public as a resource for them as well. Working with other popular accounts such as Adam Gaffin’s @UniversalHub and @Stacos, we gained the publics trust and respect for accurate, factual real time incident reporting.
In 2018 we began our transformation into what we are today, a revolutionary non-profit that is dedicated to working with the City’s First Responders to showcase their work on a daily basis. Through our community outreach, public relations, photography and videography services we help inform the public of what is happening in the city they love, all while helping local departments and unions get the recognition they deserve. In February of 2021 we finally received our 501(c)3 status and have since been continuing our mission of documenting and advocating for all first responders in the Boston Area.
We also are proud to be the leading freelance media partners for all six major television news stations in the Greater Boston Area, providing positive content to them on all things Fire, Police, and EMS related. Without these partnerships with News Media giants such as NBCUniversal and The Boston Globe, we would not be able to provide the services we do at no cost to the Departments and Unions.
