– CFSI/Motorola Solutions Mason Lankford Fire Service Leadership Award Recognizes Individual Leadership –

(January 17, 2017) – The Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI) is accepting nominations for the CFSI/Motorola Solutions Mason Lankford Fire Service Leadership Award. Sponsored jointly by CFSI and Motorola Solutions, the award recognizes individual leadership in advancing fire and life safety initiatives. The award presentation will take place on April 6, 2017 at the 29th Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Dinner in Washington, DC.

The award is named after the late-Mason Lankford, a former fire service leader from the state of Texas who worked closely with former Congressman Curt Weldon in establishing the Congressional Fire Services Caucus in 1987. The criteria embrace the importance of advocacy and leadership on behalf of all firefighters and emergency services personnel.

The Dinner is part of a larger program hosted by CFSI – the 2017 National Fire and Emergency Services Symposium – which will take place April 5-6, 2017. This two-day event is designed to educate fire service officials on congressional activities impacting the fire service and how fire service leaders can advocate for these issues. Participants will have a number of unique opportunities to interact with federal officials about federal legislation and programs benefiting our nation’s fire and emergency services.
