This event is presented by Highland Construction and Restoration and Manna Church to show community appreciation to our first responders in the City, County and at Fort Bragg. This breakfast event will be from 7:30-9:30AM at Manna Church, 5117 Cliffdale Rd., Fayetteville. The People's Choice Award recognizes first responders whose heroic efforts are making a difference in our community. This award provided the general public an opportunity to nominate first responders they have observed in action during the period from April 2018 through March 2019. In addition to the People's Choice Award, sixty-seven public safety personnel will be honored for acts of heroism in the past year. These awardees were nominated by their chief or agency head from a range of law enforcement,fire/rescue, and emergency management agency who serve Cumberland County. Incidents should have occurred within Cumberland County in the past year, or have involved first responders representing a local public safety agency. Recpients were nominated by their respective agencies, and nominations were reviewed by a layperson panel consisting of the event's top sponsors, which include Highland Cosntruction, Manna Church, Cape Fear Valley Health System, Holmes Security, American Uniform Sales, Methodist University, AT&T and Cumberland County Fire Chiefs Association. Three major awards will be given: a Certificate of Merit for outstanding work benefitting the department; the Lifesaving Award, in which personnel put their own safety at risk to save the life of another; and the prestigious Valor Award, for incidents in which acts of heroism are performed under extreme risk. We invite the public to attend – tickets are $25, and are available online at www.faybiz.com under events. Please join us in showing our thanks to these brave men and women who are protecting us every day!
