IAFF 2010 Media Awards Contest
Two hundred and forty-five entries in the 2010 Media Awards Contest attest to the fact that for today’s fire fighter, truth is stranger than fiction. People and animals, buildings and systems fail and endanger others in unique and largely unpredictable ways. A seemingly infinite series of natural and manmade catastrophes cause fire fighters everywhere to give their all, all day and all night. In their off hours – as many entries demonstrate – these dedicated personnel work to preserve essential funding, as well as make a difference in their own communities throughout the United States and Canada.
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.
