Valley Preferred Spirit of Courage Award Celebration
On October 8, 2013, first responders and civilians who saved individuals from a burn injury or death by fire were recognized for their heroic acts at the eighth annual Valley Preferred Spirit of Courage Award Celebration held at Lehigh Valley Hospital – Muhlenberg, Bethlehem.
Valley Preferred, the Burn Prevention Network, and the Regional Burn Center and Burn Recovery at Lehigh Valley Hospital launched the Valley Preferred Spirit of Courage Award Program in 2006 to honor people in eastern and northeastern Pennsylvania, and western New Jersey who risked their lives to save others from a burn or death by fire. The program recognizes individuals and groups that have done an outstanding job of promoting fire safety or burn prevention education.
Proceeds from this program benefit the Regional Burn Center at Lehigh Valley Health Network and the Burn Prevention Network.
