The IAFF Media Awards Contest helps create a greater awareness of the important and dangerous work IAFF members in the United States and Canada do to keep the public safe. The contest honors communications with the media, elected leaders, the public and members, as well as news media reporting and photography that best portray fire fighters and paramedics as dedicated all-hazards responders.
