The ECFA offers an Eastern Carolina Firefighters Association Chief and Officer of the Year award. These awards are designed to honor both career and volunteer personnel. A total of four awards will be presented annually. These awards acknowledge the importance of recognizing chiefs and officers of the fire service in Eastern North Carolina.
This program was conceived to recognize truly outstanding fire chiefs and officers whose actions and leadership in their profession, home community and country serve as an example and challenge for all other chief fire executives and officers throughout the southeast.
In addition to receiving a regional award recipients’ application packets will be forwarded to the NC Association of Fire Chiefs for consideration of their similar annual award that is presented during the Mid-Winter conference. The application period is August 1 through November 30. For more information and to download the application packet a please see the Chief and Officer of the Year portion of our website.
