The Ready, Set, Go! Program Special Recognition Award recognized John Cowie for his exceptional efforts with Barnegat Volunteer Fire Department and New Jersey Forest Fire Service.
The Ready, Set, Go Awards recognize the exceptional efforts and achievements of career and volunteer fire departments, state agencies and individual fire service members associated with implementing and maintaining a successful RSG! Program to help reach fire-adapted goals within their communities. The winners use RSG as a pre-fire mitigation and preparedness outreach program to improve wildland fire dialogue with the residents they serve.
The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) will provide funding for Ready, Set, Go! Program members to conduct community fuels reduction projects. RSG members can apply for up to $5,000 in funding and must complete projects no later than June 30, 2019.
