Just wanted to inform you about the 2024 WA Fire and Emergency Services (WAFES) Awards, which seek to recognize outstanding individuals and teams for their exceptional contributions to emergency services over the past year.

These prestigious awards, organized by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES), are open to both volunteers and DFES operational and corporate staff. We believe in celebrating the dedication and hard work of our fire and emergency services personnel, and these awards provide an opportunity to honour their commitment to keeping our communities safe.


🏆 This year, we are placing a special emphasis on encouraging nominations for young volunteers aged 25 and under. We firmly believe in recognizing and celebrating the invaluable contributions of our youth in serving the community.


🌟 I urge you to spread the word and nominate deserving individuals, young volunteers, and teams from our regional staff, volunteers, and stakeholders. Your nomination could make a significant difference in acknowledging and honouring their dedication and sacrifice.


🎉 Nominators will receive fantastic incentives, including an invitation to the prestigious WAFES Awards gala dinner at Crown Perth in September for nominating a finalist. Winners of youth and individual awards will be invited to attend the 2025 AFAC Conference, and all volunteer finalists and winners will receive a cash prize.


📝 For assistance in developing a nomination, please refer to the attached nomination guide. Additionally, feel free to reach out to the regional office for further discussion on potential nominees.


🔗 For more information, important dates, or to submit a nomination, I encourage you to visit the WAFES Award website.


Let's come together to honour the incredible efforts and achievements of our fire and emergency services personnel. Together, let's make this year's WAFES Awards a resounding success!


Thank you for your support and assistance in recognizing the dedication of our local heroes.


Please share within your communities and organisation to identify worthy individuals.
