Commendation Bars Recognizing a Firefighter's Courage and Commitment to Serve

Blackinton developed the Fire Service Commendation Bar Program to help departments recognize the dedication of the men and women in their fire department who display tireless courage and effort in their commitment to serve.  Our Firefighter Service Recognition Commendation Bar Program is an easy to implement awards program consisting of 8 of our top selling bars.  There is no custom art, no die fees, and no more guessing what each fire commendation bar means!  Below is a listing of the bars in this program. To view each commendation bar click here.
