The Vanguard Award
From time to time, it becomes the privilege of the Texas Ambulance Association to recognize the extraordinary efforts of certain special individuals or organizations that have benefitted the ambulance
industry by leading the way in new developments or novel ideas. This forms the cornerstone of its Vanguard Award.
The Vanguard Award is bestowed at the sole discretion of the Board of Directors at any time it deems appropriate, and covers a wide array of subject matter that includes, as examples, clinical care, system design, research, legislation, human resources, regulations and model efficiencies.
The Vanguard Award is granted only to individuals or organizations that are not directly or professionally affiliated with the ambulance industry.

The Texas Ambulance Association’s Joe Brown Award is named after a founder, Joe Brook Brown from Fort Worth, who served as the association’s first President from 1981-1982. The award is presented at the discretion of the TAA’s Board of Directors.
