SafeMart Holiday Hero Awards Recognize Heroic Firefighters, Police Officers, EMTs and Safe Cities

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Dec 1, 2011) - The holiday season wouldn't be as joyful without the people who keep our communities safe year round. SafeMart, a company that has revolutionized home security, announced Thursday it would sponsor the SafeMart Holiday Hero Award. SafeMart is known for technological innovation and customized solutions which make families and businesses more secure, and this year the company will award prizes for the best emergency personnel and the safest town in America, respectively. The contest is an especially fitting way for SafeMart to give back this holiday season.

"A great deal of our work in assisting families during emergency situations involves coordination with emergency personnel and local authorities," said SafeMart CEO Chris Johnson. Chris should know as he is the founder of SafeMart and a Paramedic himself.

SafeMart will award prizes to towns and personnel through an interactive contest, starting Thursday and running through December 15. Winners will be selected based on what submission has the highest number of nominations and the most inspiring story. Anyone can nominate a town or a local emergency responder by connecting with SafeMart on Facebook.

"I think the Holiday Hero Award is a great interactive way for people to make others in their community aware of people who put their lives on the line to protect us," Johnson said. "People who nominate their town or an individual emergency responder can use Facebook to tell their friends to follow suit. It will be very difficult for us to choose the best submission in each category, but we're looking forward to reading all the great stories."

Winners will be announced on December 15. The winning town will be featured in a national press release and awarded a customized video and paper guide to the best practices of residential safety. All Heroes and Cities will be recognized nationally in a press campaign and the top heroes will receive cash prizes to make for an even sweeter holiday season for their loved ones and families.
