Stafford County Wins Two National Achievement Awards

by | Jun 15, 2015 | Government

Stafford County won two 2015 Achievement Awards from the National Association of Counties (NACo). The awards recognize innovative county government programs that modernize county government and increase services to residents.

Stafford’s 350th Anniversary celebration won the NACo award in the category of Civics Education and Public Information. More than 40,000 people participated in the year-long celebration and its five signature events and numerous programs. Several initiatives of the 350th Anniversary became permanent legacies. They are Celebration Stage at Pratt Park, which is Stafford’s first amphitheater; the African-American History Wall and the brick memorial garden at the Rowser Building; and the 350th medallions gracing new public facilities that opened in 2014.

Stafford won for Fire and Rescue’s Advanced Life Support Pilot Program in the category of Emergency Management and Response. The program reduced response times and enhanced volunteer participation in the Brooke and Rock Hill areas of the county.

The National Association of Counties (NACo) assists America’s 3,069 counties in pursuing excellence in public service.
