    Event Description:

    The Greater Fayetteville Chamber is pleased to announce the 2020 Annual Public Safety Valor Awards on OCTOBER 13, 2020. This event is presented by Highland Construction and Restoration and Manna Church to show community appreciation to our first responders in the City, County and at Fort Bragg. This virtual event will be from 11:00AM - 12:30PM.

    Due to COVID restrictions, we are not able to hold a breakfast this year, or have members of the public, colleagues or families attend in person. Manna will be taping and broadcasting this event, however, so you will be able to watch the ceremony. Only awardees and their chiefs will be present at Manna Church to receive their award.For the second year in a row we are bringing back the People's Choice Award. This award provides the general public an opportunity to nominate first responders they have observed in action during the period from April 2019 through July 2020.

    In addition to the People’s Choice Award, public safety personnel will be honored for acts of heroism in the past year. These awardees are nominated by their chief or agency head from a range of law enforcement, fire/rescue, and emergency management agencies that serve Cumberland County for the awards found below. Incidents should have occurred within Cumberland County in the past year, or have involved first responders representing a local public safety agency.

    People's Choice Valor Award
    The People’s Choice Award recognizes first responders whose heroic efforts are making a difference in our community.
