The Chino Valley Independent Fire District approached Shark Studios to design a website to provide information to the public regarding the services they provide over the large Chino Valley area of Los Angeles, including fire prevention, emergency medical and paramedic services.  The site needed to be easily updated by staff and administrators. 


The resulting site includes an easy navigational scheme using drop down menus, flash movies, calendars and a database-driven content management system allowing non-technical users to easily update the website using a simple browser with internet connection anytime, anywhere.  An intuitive design and drop down navigational structure encourages users to browse and allows them to quickly find the information they need.  A Navigation bar with ‘breadcrumbs' was created in order to show users where they were on the site, providing an immediate pathway back to previously viewed content.  The site includes board agendas and minutes, firefighter training, safety tips and other information regarding the essential services they provide to the community.

The final result is a site that allows CVIFD to be independent in the management and growth of their own website through the use of content management.  It reflects management's commitment to making vital information available to the public  as quickly as possible.  The site is well organized and information is easily located within one or two clicks.  CVIFD now has a foundation for their organization's website which will allow information to go out to the public faster and more easily.

What our client says:
"Chino Valley Independent Fire District had contracted for website development and hosting with another vendor. After approximately 15 months of waiting, with our site on apparent “Hold” we changed directions and contacted Shark Studios for advice, and ultimately, the design and implementation of our website.

Shark Studios was able to share our vision of creating a “State of the Art” Website and expended a great deal of time and effort making sure our site was just that.

Frequent design meetings and continual updates as our project grew helped alleviate our concerns of another 15 months waiting without a website.

Since the roll out of our website, I have had a continual flow of positive responses to those visiting our site, and when asked, “Would you recommend Shark Studios” my answer has always been a resounding “YES”.

If you are considering Website design and implementation, you won’t go wrong in contacting Shark Studios.
