Control room heroes shortlisted

The finalists have been announced for the APD Control Room Awards. Now in its third year, the awards shine a light on individuals and teams who go above and beyond.

A total of almost 400 nominations were received from 80 organisations for the 2020 awards, with each nominee receiving a “badge of honour”.

The judging panel – listed below and made up of those with vast experience of working in or with the emergency services and critical control organisations – met last week to discuss the nominees and create the shortlists.

Mike Isherwood, APD managing director, said, “Judging the Control Room Awards is not an easy task. How do you decide which is more worthy of recognition – saving a choking baby, talking someone out of suicide, guiding a family to safety in a house fire, or locating someone at sea when they have no reference points?

“I admit to shedding tears, feeling uplifted, a little bit nauseous, angry and much more while going through the incredible entries. The individual stories create a rollercoaster of emotions, but one thing is for sure – every single one of these individuals and teams are truly amazing.”
