2016 City Awards Banquet Recap Video
Since 1999, our local businesses, churches and community at large have hosted the City Awards Banquet for our Roseville police and fire personnel. This event is an evening dedicated to honoring our Roseville Police and Fire Departments. This unique elegant evening is our way of honoring the brave officers and firefighters who serve among us.
A complimentary catered meal for our police and fire personnel is provided to enjoy with their guest and an awards ceremony similar to the Emmy’s for our Police and Fire Departments.
We provide the distinguished awards. Each department votes for their own recipient with the awards presented by the Police Chief and the Fire Chief. (Example: Officer or Firefighter of the Year Award, Unsung Hero, etc.) They vote, we provide the evening festivities and announce the winners. ABC10 News Anchor and Multimedia Journalist, Cristina Mendonsa, is our wonderful emcee.
Each year we strive to provide an inspirational speaker to encourage Roseville’s first responders. In previous years we have had the honor of N.Y.P.D. and N.Y.F.D. (The year following 9/11), Mr. T (actor), athletes, U.F.C. Hall of Fame, Ken Shamrock, a Navy S.E.A.L. veteran and professional Hollywood stunt man and numerous others. In 2014 we were privileged to have the Wildland Division Fire Chief who is also the Chief of the Granite Mountain Hotshots from Prescott, Arizona’s Fire Department. (This is the elite team of 20 firefighters, 19 of whom lost their lives fighting the Yarnell Fire in 2013. This was the greatest loss of firefighters at one time since 9/11.)
Roseville’s dignitaries such as City Manager, Mayor, Vice Mayor and City Council Members are also invited. For our Roseville businesses this event is a wonderful opportunity to build rapport with the city. Our previous attendance has ranged between 200-300. We cannot begin to express how much both departments appreciate the support of Roseville’s businesses, churches and community for hosting such a meaningful and memorable event.
Roseville’s first responders are our true community heroes who willingly choose a high stress profession, which requires them to daily be willing to sacrifice (sometimes the ultimate sacrifice) for strangers and serve their community with excellence and without acknowledgement.
We are privileged to say “Thank You” for your outstanding service by providing Roseville’s Fire and Police Departments’ awards ceremony as our gift of gratitude.
