About the Award

 

Each year Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI) and the International Fire Service Training Association at Fire Protection Publications, Oklahoma State University (IFSTA/FPP/OSU) present the Dr. Anne W. Phillips Award for Leadership in Fire Safety Education at the National Fire and Emergency Services Dinner. The annual National Fire and Emergency Services Dinner, hosted by the Congressional Fire Services Institute, is the most important event in the fire service, bringing together over 2,000 fire and emergency services leaders across the country, members of Congress and administration officials to pay tribute to the dedication and commitment of our nation’s fire and emergency services.

Named in honor of Dr. Anne Wight Phillips for her profound and enduring contributions to fire safety education, the Dr. Anne W. Phillips Award for Leadership in Fire Safety Education recognizes individuals for outstanding achievements at the national level in fire safety education.

Dr. Phillips was a member of the National Commission on Fire Prevention and Control that wrote America Burning, the most comprehensive study ever undertaken on our nation’s fire problem that justified the need for a greater federal role in fire prevention and life safety. As a member of the Commission, Dr. Phillips authored the Minority Report that pushed the Commission to recognize the important role of prevention in reducing fire injury and death.

 

History of the Award

 

In 2007, the Home Safety Council, in association with the Congressional Fire Services Institute, created the Dr. Anne W. Phillips Award for Leadership in Fire Safety Education. At the time, there did not exist a nationally-recognized award honoring individual leadership in fire safety education. In 2012, the International Fire Service Training Association (IFSTA) assumed co-sponsorship with CFSI.
