Johnsonville called on the nation to help identify and celebrate the unsung heroes and activities that make America great. We received some amazing volunteer fire department submissions and America has voted; check out the list of the grand prize winner and the top 9 finalists!
Volunteer firefighters are among the most critical public service groups in the U.S., dating back to at least the 1730s. Throughout history, these brave men and women have upheld an American tradition of volunteerism and helping those in need. Through this service, volunteer firefighters donate their time to keep community members protected from fires and other disasters. It's time we honor these unsung heros who make our communities feel safer, all without asking anything in return.
