Accepting Nominations for the Wildland Fire Safety Award
We are now accepting nominations for the Wildland Fire Safety Award, which will be presented at the conference in Asheville. The Safety Award will be presented to someone in the wildland firefighting community who has made a significant contribution to wildland firefighter safety, either directly on the fireline, or indirectly through management, cultural changes, or through wildland fire research. Their contribution is frequently beyond their normal everyday job expectations - sometimes at the potential risk to their own career, and their example can encourage others to act in a similar manner.
To nominate, please compose a letter (no more than 800 words) explaining why the nominee should receive the award, and a list of three or more individuals (with contact information) who confirm the nominee's contributions.
