Head of the FSA Steve Martin commented:
'Many congratulations to both Chris Watts and Andy Gilmore on being recognised by the FSA for their services to the fire, emergency and security industry over many years.
'We are delighted the FSA Awards are now being presented during IFSEC’s Security and Fire Excellence Awards – the industry’s leading annual awards gala - and look forward to continuing this partnership next year.'

The FSA awards are supported by industry bodies including the National Security Inspectorate (NSI), the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB), the Fire Protection Association (FPA) and British Approvals for Fire Equipment (BAFE).
Representatives from the FSA, ECA, SELECT, NSI and SSAIB were among the judges assessing the nominations for the two individual awards.
