Awards

Each year, IFSTA accepts nominations for four awards meant to recognize outstanding leaders in the fire and emergency services industry. Named after those who have themselves changed the trajectory of IFSTA’s history with their leadership, these awards are not necessarily presented annually, but when an exceptional nominee merits recognition.
