Firefighters, paramedics, volunteer rescue personnel, lifesavers and other emergency services staff are invited to submit nominations for the 7th annual Centrum Guardian of the Year Award.
The Centrum Guardian Project recognises and rewards the acts of courage and self-sacrifice that the people who work in the emergency and rescue services industry demonstrate whenever they put their uniforms on.
Nomination forms can be downloaded from the website www.centrumguardian.com and must be submitted by no later than 1 April 2014. The competition is open to registered personnel and volunteers working in the emergency and rescue services fields in South Africa.
Colleagues or individuals involved in rescue incidents dating back to January 2013 can submit their stories for consideration. Members of the public are welcome to share their own stories where emergency services crews saved their lives.
“Every year we are amazed at the extraordinary stories of courage, passion, and determination that we receive. We are proud to represent the remarkable people who work in the emergency services industry and share their heart-stopping incidents with the South African public through this initiative” said Natasha Macdonald, Centrum Brand Manager.
