Ohio company encourages statewide nominations in traveling salute to firefighters

BOLIVAR, Ohio — Ohio Billing, Inc. is inviting the public to nominate their local fire department to be recognized during the 2019 Fire Prevention Luncheon on Oct. 4.

The Bolivar-based company has offered a Fire Prevention event for several years to salute firefighters for the life-saving services they provide to communities across the state of Ohio. This year, however, begins a new era for the event.

Each year, Ohio Billing, Inc. will host the Fire Prevention Luncheon in a different area of the state. This year, on Oct. 4, the event will be held at the Event Center in Akron, 2208 E. Market St. in Akron. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will kick off Fire Prevention Week, which runs Oct. 6-12.

Community members across the state are encouraged to visit the Community Outreach page at Ohiobilling.com to access the event information and nominate their local fire department to be recognized. During the luncheon, two honorees will be presented with awards.

The deadline to submit a department nomination is Monday.

Spots are still available for fire personnel and community leaders interested in attending the luncheon. Pre-registration is required by email to Director of Marketing & Communications Michaela Madison, mmadison@ohiobilling.com.

With pre-registration, the luncheon will feature a complimentary meal to fire personnel and community leaders in attendance, a featured speaker, department recognition and a special donation presented to the Akron Burn Center.

For more information contact Madison at 330-691-1110 or mmadison@ohiobilling.com.
