The first Women in Fire Safety Awards will take place in London on 4 November 2021. The ceremony will be a virtual carbon-zero online ceremony.
The Women in Fire Safety Awards were created to honour the outstanding achievements and contributions of women within the fire-safety community. Women in Fire Safety (WIFS) strives to level out the historical gender imbalance in this male-dominated industry and pave the way for progression.
Judging the nominees are industry-leading experts including IFSM Chairman David White FIFSM (Life) MIFireE MIIRSM LCGI and John Briggs, Commercial Director at Fire Protection Association.
Chloe Vickery MIFSM, co-founder of WIFS, said: ‘An exceptional woman to me is somebody that is passionate about the main goal: making communities safer.’
The event is in collaboration with the IFSM but also has partners including the Fire Protection Association (FPA) and the Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP).
The team at MDM Publishing Ltd are global media partners to Women in Fire Safety with their publications and websites – UK Fire, International Fire Protection, Gulf Fire, Asia Pacific Fire and Global Fire Events.
MDM’s Group Editor Duncan J.
