The A.V. Viscogliosi award recognises "Excellence for Outstanding Service to Fire Protection". The award was established in 1996 (not awarded until 1998) in honour of the late Tony Viscogliosi. It commemorates the significant contribution Tony made to the fire protection industry throughout his distinguished and varied career by recognising the work of a deserving individual currently working in fire protection.
This award is presented to an individual who has demonstrated outstanding contribution to the fire protection industry. Like the Meritorious Service Awards the Outstanding Service Award is nominated and selected by the FPA Australia Board of Directors.
