The Maryland State Firemen’s Association (MSFA) sponsors an annual contest to recognize fire, rescue, and EMS departments efforts in promoting fire prevention in their communities. Contest awards are provided for companies who participate in a year-round fire prevention program as well as departments who participate in special projects, such as an open house or other fire prevention activities. An additional category recognizes departments who have shown an outstanding overall contribution to fire prevention and fire safety education activities.
