Awards call

The fire, emergency and security industry is being urged to nominate outstanding individuals, who have changed the sector for the better, for this year’s FSA Awards. The two awards, will again be presented at the IFSEC ‘Security and Fire Excellence Awards’ on Wednesday November 22 in London, are:

– The Peter Greenwood Security Award – for individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the security systems industry. Last year’s winner was Andy Gilmore of AAI Security for 25 years’ of upholding technical standards.

– The Ian Marsh Fire Award – recognises individuals who show enthusiasm and selfless concern for the fire and emergency systems industry. Last year’s winner was Chris Watts of Wavelength Associates, notably for his commitment to emergency lighting.

Head of the FSA Steve Martin, pictured, said: “The FSA is delighted to announce that nominations are open for our sector-leading awards, and we urge anyone involved in fire, emergency and security to put forward outstanding individuals. There have been many deserving winners of both the Peter Greenwood Security Award and the Ian Marsh Fire Award, and we look forward to recognising another duo of industry champions this year.”

The FSA consists of members of the ECA (Electrical Contractors’ Association), the electro-technical and engineering trade association, and Scottish electrical trade body SELECT – although the awards are open to the entire industry. 2017 marks the tenth birthday of the FSA.

The FSA is an official partner at IFSEC’s ‘Security and Fire Excellence Awards’. The winners of both FSA awards (plus one guest each) will be given free places on the FSA’s table on the evening.

The deadline for FSA Award nominations is Friday, September 15, at 5pm. The nominations will be reviewed by an independent panel of judges in the autumn. For more details, or to nominate an individual for either award, visit the ECA website.
