Jan. 31, 2012 – The Canadian Volunteer Fire Services Association (CVFSA) is now accepting nominations for the CVFSA Lifetime Achievement Award, which honours an individual whose remarkable achievements in the fire service and community exemplify outstanding performance.

Presented in partnership with Commercial Solutions Inc. and their partners, the award recognizes an individual who has made a major contribution or has achieved significant accomplishments in the volunteer fire service and demonstrated community impact through the fire service or other volunteer activities. The selection committee will consider contributions made to other volunteer community service groups such as the Lions, Kinsmen and Rotary, in addition to the work done as a volunteer firefighter.

The recipient will receive an award package including a thermal imaging camera donated by Draeger Canada and a $5,000 power tool package donated by Makita Canada.

Nominations must be submitted via the online form, by mail or fax, by March 16. The recipient of the award will be recognized at the CVFSA Annual General Meeting in Ottawa in September. The CVFSA will cover costs of travel to Ottawa for the winner and a guest.

Advertisment

Nominations will also be forwarded to a special committee that shall be making recommendations to Rideau Hall to the Office of the Governor General for consideration for an award of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.

Please take time to consider nominating a deserving volunteer firefighter. For more information visit the CVFSA website.
