CLEVELAND Fire Brigade is asking local residents to help them recognise their staff who have gone that extra mile, or above and beyond the call of duty by nominating them for an award.

The Brigade is holding its annual Celebration of Success to acknowledge all the great work its staff does across local communities. Your nomination could also lead to a national customer service award as the Brigade has teamed up with the charitable organisation The WOW! Awards.

Nominating is simple, just visit our website at and complete the form. Alternatively, please send a short letter to Cleveland Fire Brigade, Communications & Engagement Team, Stockton Road, Hartlepool, TS25 5TB.

Ian Hayton, Chief Fire Officer of Cleveland Fire Brigade said: “We need you to let us know the great work our staff do every day, as recognising the achievements of our staff is essential and who better to ask than the communities we serve.

“When members of the public feel they have received excellent customer service, or that staff have made that extra effort, they can now put them forward to receive an award.”

The closing date for nominations for our Celebration of Success is Friday 3 May 2013, but you can nominate at any time of the year as it will be put forward to our awards in 2014. If you need any assistance please call Denise Lee our Events and Community Engagement Officer on 01429 874042.

In 2012 the Brigade won three national WOW! Awards for the categories ‘Best Organisation in the Community’ and ‘Best Newcomer’ to the WOW! Awards’, and Kelly Reed, Youth Engagement Co-ordinator, also won the ‘WOW! You changed my life’ Award.

Remember you can join us on Facebook (/clevelandfb) or Twitter (@clevelandfb) to keep up to date with this as well as news and safety information.

The WOW! Awards work with various companies and organisations in the UK and worldwide, helping them to recognise exceptional work of their staff. You can also find out more about WOW! Awards by visiting
