The Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce (GGCC) will honor over thirty-five Upcounty Police Officers, Special Operations Teams, Firefighters, and Citizens at their 28th Annual Public Safety Awards Breakfast on Friday, July 8, 2022.
This event honors our public safety personnel and first responders from Montgomery County Upcounty’s Sheriff, fire and police departments who have exemplified extraordinary heroic actions and exceptional performance of their duties. The event will be held on Friday, July 8, 2022, from 7:30-10:00 a.m. at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds, Heritage Building, 16 Chestnut Street, Gaithersburg.
This year we will recognize public safety officials from the Montgomery County Police 5th and 6th Districts, Maryland State Police, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Laytonsville District Volunteer Fire Department and three citizens who saved the life of a woman in a Giant parking lot in the following categories: Medal of Valor, Citation for Bravery, Distinguished Service Citation and Meritorious Service Citation.
The Chamber feels it is of the utmost importance to thank those who protect our homes, businesses, schools, and families every day.
Annually, over two hundred business professionals, awardees, first responders, and guests gather to celebrate the achievements, outstanding service, and commitment to the community of those being awarded. This awards program provides the business community with an opportunity to publicly thank those who help maintain the quality of life in the Gaithersburg and Germantown areas.
The awards are sponsored by title sponsor Paul Davis Restoration and Remodeling and official gift sponsors the Washington Nationals & Lerner Enterprises.
We invite local businesses, elected and public safety officials to come and join us as we recognize the heroic deeds of our local law enforcement and fire-rescue workers. These men and women go beyond the call of duty to serve our local community and we want them to know we appreciate them and their hard work.
