Johnsonville is calling on the nation to help identify and celebrate some of the most deserving unsung heroes: Volunteer firefighters. Tell us about your community volunteer fire department and how the men and women inside embody the American spirit of volunteerism. Nomination period closes May 7.
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.
