Officials in Fort McMurray will be launching a Council Commendation Wildfire Medal Program.

The program is being set up to honour people and groups who served the community during the first 100 hours of the 2016 wildfire.

Residents can nominate individuals from April 27 until May 19.

Three award categories have been developed:
  1. Fire Fighter Award for Service recognizes local fire fighters
  2. Law Enforcement Award for Service recognizes local law enforcement personnel – including RCMP, Bylaw and Sheriffs
  3. Achievement in Public Service recognizes members of the public who have distinguished themselves by direct hands-on participation in an act or operation of a humanitarian nature during the first 100 hours of the 2016 wildfire.
