Acts of Valor: Loudoun Chamber to honor 178 local heroes
at 33rd Annual Loudoun County Valor Awards on April 20th
 
Recently retired Fire Chief Keith Brower will be honored with
 Stu Plitman Community Service Award; 18 civilians among honorees
 
Loudoun County, VA – It will be an historic day on Friday, April 20, 2018, when the Loudoun County business community gathers to honor 160 heroic first responders and 18 equally courageous civilians at the 33rd Annual Loudoun Annual Valor Awards.
 
Both the total number of Valor Awards presented on April 20th, and the 18 civilian awards, are the most ever granted by the Loudoun Chamber at its annual salute to the acts of selfless heroism displayed by first responders and ordinary citizens during emergency situations.
 
“It is a privilege to honor these courageous first responders and citizens for their acts of Valor and for their dedication to the safety of our community. Every day of the year, our law enforcement and fire and safety personnel put on a uniform and dedicate themselves to keeping Loudoun County safe and prosperous. It is important that the Loudoun County business community take this one day to say “Thank You” to these real-life heroes for all they do for our community,” said Loudoun Chamber President Tony Howard.
 
The Loudoun County Chamber also will present W. Keith Brower, the recently retired Chief of the Loudoun County Fire and Rescue Department, the Stu Plitman First Responder Community Service Award. Stu Plitman was the founder of the Loudoun First Responders Foundation and a tireless advocate for Loudoun’s public safety personnel. This award honors emergency first responders who demonstrate the highest commitment to fostering positive relationships with the Loudoun community in ways that enhance the safety and security of our citizens.
 
The Chamber also offers residents and businesses the opportunity to support our heroic first responders by purchasing Benefactor Tables that help provide seats to our 2018 Valor Award honorees and their family members. For more information, visit our website: www.loudounchamber.org
