Local Firemark Awards

Every year we offer the Firemark Award for two categories that honor different aspects of the valor and selfless spirit demonstrated by firefighters who go beyond the call of duty to keep our communities safe.

  • Firemark Award for Community Service & Education: recognizes local firefighters who have given back to their communities beyond their daily responsibilities.
  • Firemark Award for Heroism: recognizes local firefighters who assisted in a courageous effort without regard for their own personal safety.
National Firemark Awards

All Local Firemark Award Winners in a calendar year are considered nominees of that year's National Firemark Award. They are reviewed by an external committee of fire safety experts after the calendar year has closed then winners are chosen based on that year's Firemark Award Guidelines.
