Open Nominations for the Public Safety and Personal Hero Awards


  • The Trauma Survivors Foundation 2055 Limestone Road Wilmington, DE 19808 United States (map)

NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN UNTIL DECEMBER 28, 2018!

We are currently accepting nomination for the Dr. Sandra Gibney Public Safety Award and the Alyse Alvini Personal Hero Award until December 28, 2018.

The Trauma Survivors Foundation’s Public Safety Award was initiated by the Board of Directors in order to provide an opportunity for the men and women of Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey's public safety community to be recognized for outstanding service to the citizens of those areas. 

The Trauma Survivors Foundation’s Public Safety Award (renamed the Dr. Sandra Gibney Public Safety Award) recognizes (1) those emergency services personnel who have gone “above and beyond the call of duty” to protect the lives and property of the citizens of Delaware and (2) those who have made significant contributions to their profession through community outreach, training, or charitable contributions.

The Alyse Alvini Personal Hero Award recognizes First Responders who significantly impacted a Trauma Survivors life through heroic acts. Quite often emergency crews never know the end results of an accident nor do they ever see the survivors after the initial encounter. The Alyse Alvini Personal Hero Award changes that course of action and allows closure for both the survivor and the First Responder.

The Trauma Survivors Foundation’s Public Safety Award and the Alyse Alvini Personal Hero Award will be bestowed upon a member of law enforcement, fire service, emergency medical services, and mental health services.

You may also send your nomination along with your information to Hero@TheTraumaSurvivorsFoundation.com. The awards dinner will be held in February 2019 where the Awards Winners will be honored.
