Award Nominations

Annual Award Nominations

Each year, the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC) likes to take a moment to recognise the important contributions that fire service professionals make every day toward fire and life safety. These exceptional individuals strive to be engaging and inspiring leaders, contribute to the community in which they serve, lead by example, and positively influence others. They are dedicated and proud to serve their community. 
It is only fitting that the OAFC recognises and celebrates these individuals' commitments, and contributions, for going above and beyond. Being recognised also motivates future generations to work hard towards improving and enhancing fire and life safety. 
The OAFC invites you to identify and nominate worthy candidates who inspire others, demonstrate initiative and innovations, and make a difference for an OAFC award.
