The "Al Bell - Excellence in Dispatching" Award was created in 1988 to acknowledge the contributions Al Bell, a Southwest Area Coordinator, made to the Dispatch and Coordination system during his years of service. Al set an example as a Dispatcher and Coordinator in the Southwest Area that is recognized today as the standard of excellence in professional dispatching and coordination. In addition, his personal bearing and professional conduct established a high benchmark for interpersonal and general office relationships. Al retired from the U. S. Forest Service the same year. A recipient of this award should be someone who most closely exhibits the same attributes Al exhibited. Nominees may be from any agency and any level of the Dispatch or Coordination system in the Southwest Area.

This award is presented annually at the Southwest Area Dispatchers Workshop.
