“strength to strength”

FSA Awards wins backing of four influential industry bodies

The Fire & Security Association (FSA) Awards have four new partners: BAFE, the Fire Protection Association (FPA), National Security Inspectorate (NSI) and Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB).

The influential bodies from across the fire, emergency and security systems sector join ECA and SELECT in backing the awards.

The FSA Awards comprise the Peter Greenwood Security Award, which recognises individuals who’ve made an outstanding contribution to the security systems industry, and the Ian Marsh Fire Award, for individuals who demonstrate enthusiasm and selflessness in the fire and emergency systems industry.

Both awards are being presented alongside IFSEC’s Security & Fire Excellence Awards on 20 November 2019 at the Park Lane Hilton in London. The winners of both accolades (plus one guest each) will receive free places on the FSA’s table.

The panel of independent judges tasked with picking a winner from among the nominees:

  • Tom Brookes, Chair, FSA
  • Una Riley, Security industry expert
  • Alan Wilson, Managing Director, SELECT
  • Richard Jenkins, CEO, NSI
  • Alex Carmichael, Chief Executive, SSAIB

“The FSA is delighted to see these awards move from strength to strength, with the entire industry now getting behind both the Peter Greenwood Security Award and the Ian Marsh Fire Award,” said Tom Brookes, FSA Chair and Managing Director of Lindum Fire Services.

“We encourage the industry to put forward well deserving individuals for the awards.”

Nominations for the FSA Awards are still open until September 13.
