Firefighter Hero Award

Firefighter Hero Award

The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation has partnered with MAGLITE® to highlight the extraordinary work that firefighters do every day in their communities. As part of the Firefighter Hero Award program, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and MAGLITE® will travel the country throughout the year to recognize these heroes.

We ask departments and organizations nationwide to nominate an individual who embodies the following:

  • A firefighter who puts service above self and is willing to risk his or her life for others.
  • A firefighter who is always ready for the call and always responds.
  • A firefighter who is prepared for any challenge.
  • A firefighter who cares for every life equally.
  • A firefighter who rushes in when others rush out.
  • A firefighter who embodies physical strength and mental and emotional courage.
  • A firefighter who embodies the best of our society and culture.

Through the generosity of MAGLITE®, a donation in honor of each Firefighter Hero Award will be made to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, and a brick will be placed on the Walk of Honor® in National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Park. Our Firefighter Hero Award will also be presented with an award.
