Zangari to Receive National Fire Protection Association Star Scholarship Award

Chief Frank J Zangari of the Girardville Fire Department, and President of the Schuylkill County Fire Chiefs Association, has been selected by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to receive a Star Scholarship Award for his dedication in effectively reaching the public with fire safety education.

As an award recipient, Frank will attend NFPA’s Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, in June, where he will participate in training sessions, conference events, and a networking reception. NFPA’s Conference & Expo serves as the premier annual event for fire, electrical, and building safety.

Frank has consistently demonstrated a strong commitment to reducing Schuylkill County and all of Pennsylvania residents’ risk to fire and related hazards,” said Meredith Hawes, 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 provide consistent and innovative outreach to their community; actively use and implement NFPA resources and programs, including Learn Not to Burn®, Remembering When™, or Fire Prevention Week; promote NFPA in their community, state or province; and/or are new, enthusiastic, fire and life safety educators interested in learning about NFPA programs and materials.
