Alabama Firefighter and Emergency Medical Personnel Day

State of Alabama

Alabama firefighters and emergency medical personnel will be honored on live statewide television at the Alabama Sports Festival State Games XXVII Opening Ceremonies, June 19, 2009, 7:00 p.m. at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex Arena.

The Alabama legislature passed a joint resolution, signed by Gov. Bob Riley, declaring June 19, 2009, as Alabama Firefighter and Emergency Medical Personnel Day. This date coincides with the Alabama Sports Festival’s Opening Ceremonies, where the Alabama Sports Festival will continue its Honoring Our Heroes program by recognizing the service and sacrifice of Alabama’s firefighters and emergency medical personnel.

Firefighters and EMS personnel with a minimum of ten years of service will be eligible to receive the Medal of Service. The Medal of Service is for active, volunteer, retired, disabled, or deceased firefighters and EMS personnel.

The Medal of Sacrifice will be presented on behalf of all firefighters and EMS personnel killed in the line of duty, regardless of their length of service, and will be presented to a family member. Both medals are designed and minted exclusively for this special ceremony.

All Alabama firefighters and EMS personnel with fewer than 10 years of service, as well as all support personnel within their agencies, along with their families, are invited to attend the ceremonies free of charge to show support for those receiving medals. Personnel are encouraged to wear their uniforms and to arrive no later than 6:45 p.m.

Birmingham Firefighters Local 117 Charity Golf Tournament

Birmingham Firefighters Local 117

The 9th Annual Birmingham Firefighters Local 117 Billy Self Charity Golf Tournament to benefit Camp Smile-A-Mile was held yesterday at the Woodward Golf and Country Club in Bessemer. The turn out was so good that there were no slots left open.

The money raised from this event will help children with cancer attend summer camp. These special children will be able to participate in normal camping events while remaining under medical supervision. Before Camp Smile-A-Mile, many children were not able to go to a sleep-over camp because they were undergoing chemotherapy. Now, every child up to the age of 18 who is a current or former cancer patient can go to camp. Qualified medical personnel from the Hematology-Oncology department at The Children Hospital stay at the camp during each camping session to administer chemotherapy as well as take care of all the first aid needs of the campers.

Congratulations to Local 117 for putting on such a successful event for a great cause!
