North Zone Fire - Winner of the 2010 Lead by Example Award

Congratulations go out to North Zone Fire Management from the Black Hills National Forest. They are the winner of the 2010 Paul Gleason Lead by Example Award for mentoring and teamwork.

Citation letter excerpt:

"North Zone Fire Management employees have risen to the challenge of building leadership—not only within their own organization but also throughout the wildland fire service as a whole. In 2010, the crew came together to create 10 lesson plans for the Leadership in Cinema program that showcase leadership lessons found in the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers. Members of the crew were also instrumental in revitalizing the briefing and intent tool in the Leadership Toolbox. Thinking beyond themselves, the crew attempted to raise more than $10,000 for the Wildland Firefighter Foundation through various fundraisers. North Zone Fire’s efforts through mentoring, teamwork, and giving of selves are examples of duty, respect, and integrity."
