Fire 20/20 Announces Tony Pini Awards

Tuesday, 15 March 2011

Fire 20/20, a nonprofit organization that helps fire/EMS departments connect with their multicultural communities to increase the reach and effectiveness of recruitment and prevention programs, has launched a new awards program honoring diversity in the fire service.


Named in honor of the late Santa Rosa Fire Chief Tony Pini, a lifelong advocate for diversity and inclusion in the fire service, the first annual Tony Pini Awards will honor fire departments that are working to build and nourish a diverse, inclusive culture and that foster proactive relationships with their multicultural communities.

Two career and two volunteer departments will be presented with the Tony Pini Awards during a special breakfast event at Fire-Rescue International (FRI) on August 25, 2011.

The application period is open until April 30. Click here to learn more and nominate your department. For more information about Fire 20/20, visit
