Kelly Intzes and Robert Rewis were the recipients of the 2016 and 2017 Ryan Ward Scholarships.  Jack’s son, Ryan Ward, an up and coming investigator employed by Ward and Whitemore Universal Fire Consultants, was tragically killed in a car accident at the age of 26. In remembrance and celebration of his life in the fire investigation community, Jack Ward established the Ryan Ward Scholarship Program.

We would also like to take the time to congratulate our founder, Jack Ward, for receiving the Guy E. (Sandy) Burnette Award.

This award is given to an individual or organization that has provided outstanding service and dedication to the Fire Investigators of Florida for the purpose and objectives the Chapter represents. The recipient receiving this award, is one that represents that same “passion” that Sandy has, and is chosen by the Board of Directors.
