Fire Service Community Achievement Award
Volunteer firefighters have the courage to face danger and the heart to help out in their communities. On the fireground or around town, so many continue to give and sacrifice beyond the fire service every day.
Every year, FASNY gives the Fire Service Community Achievement Award to an active volunteer firefighter who is also active with one or more community service organizations.
If you know someone deserving of recognition, you’re invited to nominate an individual who complements active fire service with involvement in civic organizations, charitable programs and other community groups.
Deadline to submit nominations was March 15, 2015.
Winners for the 2015 award will be announced soon.
