Johnson County Emergency Management & Homeland Security was recently notified of a new award to recognize local citizens who go above and beyond to protect local communities.
The American spirit is steeped in an appreciation for individual contribution and the guiding principle of helping others. FEMA would like to recognize individuals who have made a difference in making their community safer and better prepared. These are people who have given their time and energy, offered skills and capabilities, been leaders in providing education and training, responded to crises and disasters, or simply made a call when they saw something suspicious. As a result, they have saved lives, property, or positively impacted their communities. These are the individuals we wish to highlight and celebrate.
By August 15, 2010 please send FEMA stories about individuals who have made a difference in their community. Send them your stories by email, in a format that is best for you, to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Outstanding Individual" in the subject line.
We are positive that Johnson County has individuals just like this. Help us find them and get them recognized!
