AFD Captain Dolph to be Honored at American Legion Firefighter of the Year Award Ceremony
Firefighter of the Year Award
Anchorage Fire Department (AFD) Captain Jason Dolph, has been awarded first runner up to the American Legion National Firefighter of the year award for 2014. A presentation of the award will take place at 1:30 PM on Friday, June 20, 2014 at the AFD Training Center, located at 1150 Airport Heights Drive in Anchorage. This is the first time that a firefighter from Alaska has been recognized.
Captain Dolph is the epitome of the vision of what a firefighter should be for their community. He has dedicated his life to improving the lives of the community that he has sworn to protect in line with the Anchorage Fire Department’s mission to “Serve the Community Before, During and After an Emergency.” Not only does Captain Dolph work to improve the Municipality Of Anchorage, his efforts also motivate fire service personnel throughout the rest of the State of Alaska.
Captain Dolph has shown great dedication in leading the Anchorage Fire Department’s efforts to promote cancer awareness throughout the community. Jason created and organizes the annual Breast Cancer Awareness program. The program includes displaying a pink ribbon on select fire apparatus. He sought and was granted permission for fire department employees to display pink ribbons on AFD uniform shirts during cancer awareness month, while on-duty, to increase the public’s awareness of breast cancer.
Please join us in recognizing a great firefighter, Captain Jason Dolph, at the AFD Training Center, this Friday.
