PITTSBURGH – Guardian Protection gave about 2,000 game tickets for the July 15 game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants at PNC Park to local police officers, firefighters and their families.
Among those cheering were Pittsburgh Police Chief Larry Scirotto, who was sworn in June 7 as the city’s 55th chief. In addition to attending the game, Scirotto had the honor of throwing out the first pitch before the Pirates hosted the Giants that night. He also joined 50 selected attendees on the field for a spectacular view of fireworks following the game, which the Pirates lost, 3-1.
The day before the game, Guardian generated excitement for the event with representatives from the company and the Pirates organization making personal visits to local police and fire departments.
Citizens and first responders could get an autograph and catch a smile watching the antics of mascot Pirate Parrot. On game day, Guardian setup shop in branded purple tents along the North Shore of the city where interested game goers signed up to learn more about a smart home security system and take home some Guardian swag.
“As a smart security systems company providing 24/7 emergency monitoring, we know that police officers and firefighters are on duty around the clock,” said Kevin Bish, Guardian vice president of marketing.
“Free tickets to the baseball game are a way of helping them enjoy a little off-duty time with their families,” he says. “We appreciate the impact police and fire departments make in keeping homes and businesses safer.”
