Fire 20/20, a nonprofit organisation that helps fire/EMS departments connect with their multicultural communities to increase the reach and effectiveness of recruitment and prevention programs, has launched a new awards program honouring diversity in the fire service.
Named in honour of the late Santa Rosa Fire Chief Tony Pini, a lifelong advocate for diversity and inclusion in the fire service, the first annual Tony Pini Awards will honour fire departments that are working to build and nourish a diverse, inclusive culture and that foster proactive relationships with their multicultural communities.
Two career and two volunteer departments will be presented with the Tony Pini Awards during a special breakfast event at Fire-Rescue International (FRI) on August 25, 2011.
