We are delighted to announce the shortlist of finalists for the Excellence in Fire & Emergency Awards 2021.

We are proud to showcase the work of our fire and emergency services in the seventh Excellence in Fire & Emergency Awards, which offers chief officers and their teams the opportunity to unite with suppliers, organisations and industry supporters to recognise and applaud such achievements. This year’s nominees were of the highest possible standard with a large number of entrants on the long list meriting inclusion as a finalist.

In a trying last 18 months for fire and emergency personnel, judges were most impressed by the exceptional response to the Covid-19 pandemic and how brilliantly personnel have risen to the challenge. The incredibly high standard of nominees for the Outstanding Contribution and Unsung Hero categories are testimony to their remarkable accomplishments.

This year’s 150 plus nominees are the strongest yet and it is testament to the work of fire and emergency services that the standard continues to rise in spite of the huge impact of Coronavirus.
