Every day, the men and women of our law enforcement agencies and fire and medical department put their lives on the line to ensure the safety of our community. The Valor First Responder Awards pays tribute to the heroism and sacrifice of our First Responders.
Created in 2011 Valor recognizes the bravest in our community, the ones who daily put themselves in harm’s way to ensure the safety of others. The Lawrence, Douglas County Valor Awards provides our community with a unique opportunity to show our appreciation and publicly honor and recognize the men and women who protect us every day. The 2016 Valor First Responder Awards recognition ceremony, celebrating this year’s honorees, is scheduled for September 16th.
Five levels of awards may be bestowed to Valor honorees – Gold, Silver, Bronze, Meritorious Service and Life Saving.
