The 2009 application period for the Fire Corps Award of Excellence is now open. Sponsored by the International Fire Service Training Association, the Fire Corps Award of Excellence honors a Fire Corps program whose remarkable achievements in the fire and emergency services and the community exemplify outstanding performance.

To be considered for the award, nominees must be registered with Fire Corps and must be a fire/EMS department, or affiliated with a fire/EMS department. Candidate programs must have been active for at least one year at time of nomination, and the actions or achievements of the program must have made a positive impact in allowing the fire/EMS department to respond to the needs of the community and assist in making that community safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to emergencies of all kinds. Eligible programs include auxiliaries, junior firefighter programs, and other non-emergency support programs that meet the criteria for a Fire Corps program and are registered with the national Fire Corps office.
