Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service has been recognised for their road safety work carried out in the community at the 'Fleet Safety Forum Awards for Excellence'.
Sponsored by Brake, the road safety charity, Cheshire was the only fire and rescue service to make the final nominations, receiving a highly commended second place in the Road Safety in the Community category.
Now in their 11th year, the awards recognise the achievements of those working to help reduce the number of costly, and in many cases fatal, road crashes involving at-work drivers.
Involved with many road safety initiatives throughout the year, the Service's Road Safety Manager Martin Dowle said: "Getting to the finals of these prestigious awards is testament to the hard work and commitment we put into making Cheshire's roads safer. We are thrilled to have been recognised for our efforts."
The awards are open to commercial, public sector and not-for-profit organisations operating fleets of any size and type, as well as those providing safety services and products to the industry.
