WENDELL, N.C. — KIOTI Tractor, a division of Daedong-USA, is launching its First Responders "Shout Out" social media promotion and video contest. KIOTI invites first responder organizations to submit a video via Facebook for a chance to win a KIOTI MECHRON 2200PS.

KIOTI’s First Responders "Shout Out" honors all first responder groups throughout the U.S. and Canada. First responders are individuals in the public safety career fields including law enforcement, firefighting, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), emergency management and search and rescue. KIOTI Tractor will be thanking first responders on its Facebook page and is encouraging its social media audience to thank their local first responders.

“Every day, first responders sacrifice their safety to protect and serve their communities," says Peter Dong-Kyun Kim, president and CEO of Daedong-USA, KIOTI Tractor Division. "KIOTI wants to promote and honor these personnel in a fun and exciting way."

Organizations interested in participating must create a video explaining who they are, their location, why they need a MECHRON 2200PS and how it will be used if they win. The video should be under three minutes in length. The promotion is now open for participants to complete an entry form and upload their video to the KIOTI Tractor Facebook page, under the "Shout Out" tab. One submission will be counted per organization.

Once the video entry is submitted, voters can navigate through the gallery of submissions on KIOTI’s Facebook page to cast their vote. On Dec. 1, 2017 at 11:59 P.M. (EST), voting will close and the organizational video with the most votes will win the MECHRON 2200PS grand prize. The winning first responder organization will be announced within 30 days of the promotion’s end.
