Fire Corps and the International Fire Service Training Association/Fire Protection Publications (IFSTA/FPP) are pleased to announce that the Green Valley Fire District (GVFD) in Green Valley, AZ, has been selected as the 2012 Fire Corps Award of Excellence winner! Honorable mentions were given to the Sun City West Fire District (AZ) and the Layton City Fire Department (UT).
Sponsored by IFSTA/FPP, the Award of Excellence annually honors a Fire Corps program whose remarkable achievements in the fire and emergency services and the community exemplify outstanding performance. Representatives from the GVFD will attend the upcoming Fire Corps National Advisory Committee (NAC) meeting near Washington, DC, to receive their award and present their program’s accomplishments. The NAC, which consists of representatives from nearly every major fire and emergency service organization across the U.S., provides valuable input and guidance to Fire Corps.
“The GVFD is an exceptional program,” said Mike Wieder, FPP Associate Director and IFSTA Executive Director. “We are excited to have their representatives attend the meeting to inform the NAC of all their hard work and accomplishments, and also to share this model program with others looking to start or enhance their Fire Corps initiatives.”
