Each year, the Department of Commerce’s Division of State Fire Marshal and Department of Public Safety’s Division of EMS host the Ohio Fire Service Hall of Fame & Fire Awards. The ceremony recognizes the bravery, commitment and sacrifice those men and women make on behalf of their communities. The event also honors members of the public who, at great personal risk to themselves, are credited with directly saving or attempting to save a life during an extreme fire or other emergency rescue situation.
Seventeen awards were presented to recipients from around the state at this year’s ceremony. To see this year's winners, download the attachment on this page.
We want to thank all of Ohio’s fire service for their dedication and commitment and look forward to celebrating your successes at next year’s Hall of Fame Ceremony.
