  • “More important than ever to recognise contribution and dedication ”


The Excellence in Fire & Emergency Awards will now take place on March 19th 2021 at One Great George Street, London. Originally scheduled for December 4th at the same venue, organisers and FIRE magazine publishers, Fire Knowledge, have moved the awards to ensure the event goes ahead in recognition of the significant contribution of fire and emergency workers during the global pandemic.

The awards ceremony will again be held in the illustrious Great Hall at One Great George Street and promises to be better than ever.

Commercial Manager Beverley Rees said: “Our sponsors and attendees often tell me that the awards is the highlight of their year and I am delighted that, in the circumstances, we will be able to showcase the blue ribbon event for the fire and emergency services again. It is more important than ever to recognise the contribution and dedication of our fire and emergency service workers and we look forward to welcoming awards finalists, guests and sponsors to the magnificent venue of One Great George Street.”

FIRE Editor and Publisher Andrew Lynch said: “I am pleased that the fire sector’s leading awards are going ahead in March as it is more important than ever to recognise the hard work and commitment of fire and emergency responders during this time. FIRE magazine has provided extensive coverage of the exceptional response of fire and rescue services in support of the NHS and emergency services colleagues and we look forward to celebrating the life-saving contribution personnel have made during Covid-19.

“It is also important to recognise the contribution of the fire industry in providing resources from high-quality PPE to systems software to enable outstanding response. This is the essence of our awards: recognising effective collaboration between industry and fire and emergency response in supporting our communities, saving lives and recognising and celebrating success.”

The awards entry deadline will be extended until December 31st.
