SVFFA Fire Fighter of the Year Award!

FIRE CHIEFS/OFFICERS/ADMINISTRATORS: DO YOU HAVE A FIRE FIGHTER IN YOUR RANKS WHO HAS GONE "ABOVE AND BEYOND"? DO YOU FEEL THEY DESERVE RECOGNITION AMONGST THEIR PROVINCIAL PEERS? The SVFFA FIRE FIGHTER OF THE YEAR AWARD will honor one outstanding individual from each of the 10 zones. The applicant must be a VOLUNTEER in good standing and have been a member for at least ONE FULL YEAR . The Department must also have been an SVFFA member for a full calendar year.

As a leader you will need to pick the ONE candidate from your team. This may be a daunting task as you may have several who would fit the bill. But, for obvious reasons, only one can be selected (keep in mind you may nominate one of your other "All Stars" the following year provided they continue their outstanding service) You can write the application in any form you desire: formal letter, bullet point, essay style etc. ( please though, no poems). Pick your candidate for 2016, get it into your Zone or Alternate Zone Representative via mail/email/fax etc. by March 30 2017. You may also email Paul Cockell at or Janice at Winners will be chosen and their Chief informed prior to the award ceremony at the Spring School in White City April 7 – 9, 2017.

This award will be for the "rank and file" members, therefore Chiefs and their Deputies/Officers will not be included in this particular program. We may in the future consider an award for the officers.
