There is still time to nominate an outstanding Fire Corps program for the 2010 Award of Excellence. Nominations are due this Friday, August 6, 2010. The Award of Excellence, which is sponsored by the International Fire Service Training Association (IFSTA) and Fire Protection Publications, annually honors a Fire Corps program whose remarkable achievements in the fire and emergency services and the community exemplify outstanding performance. Recognize the dedicated work of your Fire Corps team by nominating them for this prestigious national award.

Nominees must be registered with Fire Corps and be part of or affiliated with a fire/EMS department or sponsoring agency representing the fire and emergency services. Eligible programs include auxiliaries, junior firefighter programs, and other non-emergency support programs that meet the criteria for a Fire Corps program. The program must have been active for at least one year and have made a positive impact in the community.

The recipient of the Award of Excellence will receive travel for department and program representatives to attend the Fire Corps National Advisory Committee Meeting in Greenbelt, MD, in the fall of 2010 for the award presentation.
