THERE is now less than a week to go until the MORE Awards winners of 2013 are announced.
The awards showcase the hard work and initiatives staff and businesses have undertaken with Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service over the past year.
This year’s ceremony will be at the Stafford County Showground on Thursday, March 7 with nine prestigious MORE Awards presented.
Chief fire officer and chief executive Peter Dartford said: “There have been 25 people and businesses shortlisted, two or three in each of the nine categories, including the publicly nominated Fire Service Champion award.
“It’s vitally important that we recognise the contribution our staff and volunteers make, as well as those who work with us to improve the lives and well-being of the communities we serve.
“It is also right that we celebrate the hard work they do, as there are so many examples where individuals and teams go above and beyond the call of duty to protect the communities of Staffordshire.
“They also should be praised as they make a positive difference in their local areas.”
