Seeking Nominations for First Responder of the Year!


I am pleased to seek nominations from our community for the upcoming 2021-22 First Responder of the Year Award for the 21st Assembly District.


You can nominate a deserving first responder for a variety of reasons including:

  • A specific heroic action;
  • A significant professional achievement;
  • Something special they do for the community during the course of their work;
  • His or her body of work over time; and/or
  • His or her length of service.


The person nominated could be a police officer or sheriff’s deputy, a firefighter, or any level of EMS provider (paramedic, EMT, first responder), and can be either a paid or volunteer public servant. To have your local hero be eligible, please submit your nomination using this website form no later than Friday, October 8th, 2021.


A winner from within our assembly district will then be selected in October and he or she will be invited to a Hometown Heroes recognition in the Assembly during the week of October 26th.


Thank you in advance for participating in this program to recognize our first responders. I look forward to reading your submissions about our local heroes!
