Mary Alice Reporting – As a way to recognize the role fire departments play in communities, Ohio Billing Inc. is accepting statewide nominations.

The Bolivar-based business salutes firefighters during an annual Fire Prevention Luncheon and starting this year, the company will move around the state for this event.

Director of Marketing & Communications Michaela Madison explains that this is a way for Ohio Billing and residents to show appreciate for the job fire crews do.

“To show our gratitude for what these men and women do every single day. Firefighters have a tough job and we just want to say thank you [and] where we can recognize departments for that work.”

All Ohio communities can nominate a department they would like to see recognized for their outstanding work and involvement.

“We really want to stress that opportunity [for the entire state] and they can do that just by visiting our website,”

The deadline to submit the nominations is September 9th. The main luncheon, hosted in Akron, will be on October 4th.
