This month we are reissuing the materials that were included in the February DFS Briefs in regards to the 28th annual Firefighter of the Year awards. New this year, we are accepting nominations to honor outstanding acts of heroism and bravery as well as community service by Massachusetts firefighters on a rolling basis, so that you can forward a nomination at any time. Included in the DFS Briefs you will find the criteria and nomination form due by July 14, 2017 for incidents that took place in FY17.

Also included in this month’s Briefs are training opportunities and public safety information on preventing electrical fires at home.

Please be sure to avail yourself to all of the important information contained in the April DFS Briefs.
