The nomination period deadline is May 20. Each nomination package will be reviewed by a selection committee to select the winners. The winners will be honored at Fire-Rescue International on Thursday, August 9 in Dallas and will be featured in IAFC On Scene and FireChief.com. Thank you for your contributions to the fire and emergency service. Questions? Please contact firechiefaward@iafc.org or Jim Philipps at 703-537-4829.
