Since 1994 the National Association of State Fire Marshals, through the Life Safety Achievement Award, has recognized both professional and volunteer fire departments for outstanding fire safety statistics and effective fire prevention programs during the preceding calendar year. Fire departments across the United States are eligible for the national Life Safety Achievement Award.
To qualify, fire departments must record zero fire deaths in residential structures or a 10 percent reduction of fire deaths during 2017. In addition, they must demonstrate a commitment to preventing residential fires in their local communities through effective fire prevention programs. The applicants must show evidence that the department’s fire prevention efforts increased over the previous year and made a positive impact.
If your department is interested in applying, please visit our Life Safety Achievement Award Page.
The 2017 Life Safety Achievement Award is sponsored by National Association of State Fire Marshals Fire Research & Education Fund, and Grinnell Mutual.
