Bill Williams Humanitarian Award Nomination

Deadline for Submission April 14, 2017

The Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs in partnership with Safedesign Apparel Ltd. is inviting people to submit nominations for the Bill Williams Humanitarian Award.

Bill Williams loved people and was friends with everyone no matter who they worked for. He would go out of his way to help people, give them advice, or get them the product that they needed (even if it was not something that he sold). He was all about service. If you needed help, Bill would be there. He was constantly doing good deeds. He did things because he felt that it was the right thing to do.

Bill was a long term employee of Safedesign and was a regular fixture at the OAFC Trade Show as the Exhibitors’ Representative and as the MC for the prize draw.

A Bill Williams Award nominee has to be someone from the fire service or fire industry and should exemplify one or more of the following list of attributes and accomplishments:
