Ohio’s Fire Service:
Once again, the Ohio Department of Public Safety, Division of EMS and the Ohio Department of Commerce, Division of State Fire Marshal are partnering to honor fire service members for exemplary service to their communities.
We are pleased to provide an opportunity for firefighters, family members, and friends to honor the sacrifices made every day by Ohio’s firefighters and educators. Whether it is the time necessary to train in the latest firefighting techniques or time putting those skills to use, the men and women who sacrifice for the safety of others will be recognized. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not have our large traditional gathering, but rather plan individual ceremonies, arranged with each recipient's fire department in accordance with Ohio's current guidelines for group gatherings at the time.
