COMMUNITY HEROES LOCAL AND STATE-WIDE For over 38 years, MADD knows that a crucial element of end- ing drunk, drugged and substance-impaired driving is the law enforcement, first responders, prosecutors and community members. We, here at MADD, regard these folks and their families as Community Heroes . Throughout the United States, we host local Recognition Cere- monies where we announce top nomination honorees and cele- brate those who are nominated. In the state of Florida, we have a unique opportunity to recognize our Community Heroes at events hosted by our local offices as well as at a state-wide event. In Southwest Florida, we celebrate law enforcement, breath tech operators, first responders, prosecutors, nonprofits, volun- teers and others who help our community with this public health issue through a nomination process and event.
