Paul S. Sarbanes Fire Service Safety Leadership Award — Previous Recipients

2019 Recipients

Florida Firefighters Safety and Health Collaborative and the Denver Fire Department were selected as the co-recipients of the Senator Paul S. Sarbanes Fire Service Safety Leadership Award.

Established in 2016 as a nonprofit organization, the Florida Firefighters Safety and Health Collaborative brings together members of the fire service and health and safety advocates in the state of Florida to share information and best practices on firefighter health and safety. The program continues to expand, currently covering five regions of the state with plans pending for future expansion. Firefighter cancer prevention, emotional and mental wellness, heath and physical fitness, and safety at all emergency incidents are the key focus areas of the program.

The Denver Fire Department is being recognized for its development of a comprehensive health and safety program. The Denver Fire Department Safety and Training program incorporates fitness, nutrition and behavioral health that can be tailored to the needs of each individual firefighter. The elements are integrated with the department’s safety and training program, beginning with the recruit level and continuing well into each firefighter’s career.
