Every day, first responders go above and beyond the call of duty to protect and uplift their community. RISE Award Winners demonstrate the awe-inspiring bravery and heroism displayed by so many public safety professionals. Their stories inspire us in our work, and provide shining examples for future generations of first responders.
We look forward to highlighting more outstanding partners and stories at the 2023 RISE Awards!
