"Our first responders spend each and every workday putting their lives on the line to ensure that others remain safe. Being recognized through the Valor Awards by the citizens we protect is the highest compliment any first responder can receive."   Fire Chief Tim Williams

"Communications Officers are the calming voice on the other end of the phone and radio, often forgotten, answering the 911 lines, keeping the mother calm while giving pre-arrival instructions, sending law enforcement for the prowler, or ensuring everyone is out of the burning building.  Being included  in this reception with our fellow first responders is humbling, yet one of the highest honors bestowed upon us."   Emergency Communications Center Director Mellanie Shipe

"The Woodstock Police Department is extremely grateful to the Shenandoah County Chamber of Commerce and the business community who support our public safety professionals. This collaborative relationship is a critical component to our ability to serve the needs of the residents and visitors to our wonderful community.” Chief Eric Reiley

“I’m truly proud and honored to stand together with our community to recognize all the first responder men and women who put their lives on the line for each of us daily. These brave individuals go above and beyond the call of duty to serve the community. It is with great pleasure to be part of the Valor Awards Program to celebrate each of them.” Wayne Sager, Strasburg Chief of Police
