June 25, 2019 will see the second staging of The Greater Fayetteville Chamber’s landmark community event – the Public Safety Valor Awards. 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 breakfast event will be from 7:30-9:30AM at Manna Church, 5117 Cliffdale Rd, Fayetteville.
Honorees may be nominated by their chief or agency head from any law enforcement,
fire/rescue, and emergency management agency who serves Cumberland County
regarding an incident that occurred within Cumberland County in the past year. The community will also have an opportunity to participate in nominating first responders for a People’s Choice Award.
Three major awards will be given: a Certificate of Merit for outstanding work benefitting the department; the Lifesaving Award, in which personnel put their own safety at risk to save the life of another; and the prestigious Valor Award, for incidents in which acts of heroism are performed under extreme risk.
We invite the public to attend – tickets are $25, and are available online at www.faybiz.com
under events. Please join us in showing our thanks to these brave men and women who are protecting us every day!
