[ARCHIVED] Twin Falls Fire Marshal Receives NFPA Scholarship for Commitment to Teaching Fire and Life Safety
Fire Marshal Tim Lauda of the Twin Falls Fire Department has been selected by the National Firefighter Protection Association (NFPA) to receive the Star Scholarship Award for his dedication to teaching and promoting fire safety education. As an award recipient, Tim will participate in training sessions at NFPA’s Conference in Las Vegas, Nev.
“Tim has consistently demonstrated a strong commitment to reducing Twin Falls residents’ risk to fire and related hazards,” said Jeff Donahue, regional education specialist for NFPA’s Public Education Division. “He is truly deserving of this award, and we’re thrilled to have him attend this year’s conference.”
NFPA chose 12 scholarship recipients from the United States and Canada who demonstrate consistent and innovative outreach to their community; actively use and implement NFPA resources and programs; and enthusiastically educate the community about fire and life safety. Winners were selected by NFPA’s Regional Education Specialists and Canadian Public Education Representative. Each scholarship covers the full cost of travel, conference registration, and lodging.
“I’m very honored to be one of the twelve selected for the scholarship,” Lauda said. “It’s a great opportunity to learn about new innovations in community fire prevention and to bring the best ideas back to Twin Falls.”
