Deputy Fire Chief Kevin Brame (Retired) from North Las Vegas has been named the 2013 recipient of the James O. Page EMS Achievement Award. The annual award is presented to a leader who has made a positive impact on a national scale, creating and promoting non-clinical innovation and achievements in fire service EMS management.
Chief Brame has been a long-time IAFC/EMS Section member and has led and served on multiple committees that have moved forward the Section’s work in policy and education.
“The EMS Section is honored to have Chief Brame join a distinguished list of award winners from past years who have truly exemplified the unselfish service model that fire-based EMS typifies,” said Chief Gary Ludwig, chairman of the EMS Section. “Chief Brame is one of those fire service leaders that have contributed greatly to promoting fire-based EMS at the national level and we are thrilled to recognize him for his contributions.”
Chief Dave Becker, incoming EMS Section chairman, along with award sponsors Physio-Control, presented the award to Brame at the general session of this week's Fire-Rescue Med, a leading, national educational forum for fire-based EMS officials hosted by the IAFC.
Brame joins an impressive cadre of EMS notables who are previous James O. Page Award winners. The award seeks to honor those who demonstrate enthusiasm and dedication toward fire-based EMS, professionalism and vision, a desire for achievement, a drive for excellence, and exemplary performance and leadership.
