Chamber asks the Loudoun public to nominate worthy first responders or ordinary citizens whose heroism and lifesaving actions are worthy of recognition
Loudoun County, VA – The Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations for the 32nd Annual Loudoun County Valor Awards, when the Loudoun business community will honor the career and volunteer emergency first responders and ordinary citizens for their courageous, often lifesaving actions in 2016. Nominations are due by January 6, 2017.
In the spring of 2017, the Chamber will honor the worthiest of these fire, emergency rescue and law enforcement personnel at the Valor Awards ceremony.
All career and volunteer law enforcement, fire and rescue personnel from agencies within Loudoun – including the Towns, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority and Virginia State Police – and citizens who live or work in the County are eligible for a Valor Award.
“The Annual Valor Awards is the Loudoun County Chamber’s proudest tradition, because it provides our members the privilege of honoring our community’s emergency first responders and those ordinary citizens whose heroic and selfless actions, often in the face of great peril, have saved lives and kept our community safe,” said Chamber President Tony Howard.
