WINNERS

The IAFF received 305 entries in the 2012 Media Awards Contest – all of which reflect the expanding role fire fighters play in communities across North America. These dedicated personnel respond to all-hazards, including natural and manmade disasters, hazardous materials spills, water rescues, vehicle accidents, medical emergencies, wildland fires and other countless unpredictable incidents. At the same time, fire fighters and paramedics work tirelessly to preserve funding and staffing, as well as give their all to make a difference in their own communities.

This competition pays tribute to those who, in the public media and through their affiliates, document the great and the small in the life of fire fighters everywhere.
