Firefighter Honoree Nominations Now Open Recognize a Community Member Today


HAMBURG, NEW YORK – Nominations are now open for the 2024 Erie County Fair Firefighter Honoree Award. This prestigious award recognizes an outstanding firefighter who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to serve their community. If you know a firefighter who deserves to be recognized, consider nominating them for this special honor to show your appreciation.

Nominations for the Firefighter Honoree Award are open to the public and can be submitted online at until July 15th. Nominees must be active or retired firefighters, including junior firefighters, who have served their communities with distinction. Nominations are simple and require a brief explanation of the nominee’s contributions to the community and the fire service.

The selection committee will review all nominations and select 12 honorees based on the categories of dedication, loyalty, performance, professionalism, and impact.  One honoree will be honored each day at a special ceremony at 6 pm outside of the Firemen’s Building during the 2024 Erie County Fair.

The annual Firefighters Day at the Erie County Fair will be held on Friday, August 9th.   Admission will be free for firefighters and auxiliary members (with proper ID), and they will receive a $10 voucher valid for food, drink, or rides at the Fair that day.   That same day, the Erie County Volunteer Firemen’s Association will hold a Firefighter’s Service outside of the Firemen’s Building at 7:00 pm.
