Nominations for Fire Service Leadership Award: CFSI/Motorola Solutions Mason Lankford Fire Service Leadership Award Recognizes Individual Leadership

The Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI) is now accepting nominations for the 2020 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 30, 2020, at the 32nd 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 Lankford’s legacy as a tireless advocate for all firefighters and emergency services personnel who was fully committed to making the fire service profession safer for all who serve.

The Dinner culminates a two-day program that features seminars conducted by national fire service leaders and federal officials and covers a broad range of public safety issues. In addition, attendees will spend their time on Capitol Hill visiting with their members of Congress to discuss federal legislation that impacts the fire and emergency services. The program provides a unique opportunity for the fire service to make its presence felt on Capitol Hill by our federal legislators and federal agency officials.

Individuals submitting nominations are asked to provide detailed answers to all questions by December 3, 2019. Please contact CFSI at 202-371-1277 if you have any questions about the award or the 32nd Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Symposium and Dinner.
