In November 2005, there was a presentation of a Certificate of Commendation to an Eagle Scout who is also a member of the
local fire brigade. There were many favorable comments received by the officers about this presentation. The Board of Directors
felt that an Association program that would recognize scouts who earn Eagle rank and have an association with the fire service
would be appropriate.
Accordingly, a program was established to recognize any scout who achieves the Eagle Scout honor and is an active junior or
cadet member of a Fire Department or if his parent, grandparent, or guardian is a member of the State Fire Chiefs Association.
The recognition will be the presentation of a certificate by an officer or trustee of the Association at the Eagle Court of Honor.
The process is initiated by a letter from a leader of the Scout Troop or the member of the Association whose child is to be

recognized. The letter must include:

  • the name of the Scout,
  • his address and phone,
  • the name and address of the person making the request,
  • the fire department membership of the Scout or the relationship to the Association member making the request, and
  • the date, time, and location of the Court of Honor.
The attached form (below) can be used to make the request.

Requests should be sent to:

New Jersey State Fire Chiefs Association

Mr. Chris Assenheimer, Secretary
444 Central Ave.

At least 30 days notice is necessary to prepare the certificate and schedule the presentation.
