Outstanding achievements honoured at inaugural Fire & Security Matters Awards

10 May 2022

THE INAUGURAL Fire & Security Matters Awards took place at the Coventry Building Society Arena on the evening of Thursday 28 April. Celebrating the work conducted by organisations, teams and individuals from across the UK, the black-tie gala dinner and awards ceremony included representation from a significant number of National Security Inspectorate (NSI)-approved companies who’ve achieved the highest standards of excellence and innovation in their ongoing desire to keep people and property safe.

More than 400 guests from the fire and security sectors attended the evening, which raised funds for The Fire Fighters Charity. The NSI would like to congratulate all those who won awards in the 12 designated categories, including 13 NSI-approved company finalists of whom the following individuals and teams were awarded prizes in six categories:

Commenting on the event, honoured guest and Fire & Security Matters Awards supporter Richard Jenkins (CEO at the NSI) commented: “Recognising the invaluable contributions of those in the fire safety and private security sectors who work tirelessly to keep people and property safe in our everyday lives is crucial. Without their dedication and commitment to safeguarding our communities, in partnership with the police and other key stakeholders, the places in which we live, work and spend our leisure time in today’s complex and unpredictable environments would be far less safe.”

Jenkins added: “As a keen supporter of the Fire & Security Matters Awards, we are proud to congratulate the finalists and winners for their achievements and wish them all every success in the future.”
