BFRS People Awards

Become a sponsor of our People Awards

BFRS People Awards is one of the ways in which we develop a ‘success mindset’ in the workplace. Celebrating achievement is not about getting from A to B. It’s about mastering a way of working that fosters creativity, fulfilment, and personal investment, enabling our staff to not only make progress continuously, but want to make progress continuously. It helps increase the confidence and motivation of our staff and build trust and stronger relationships within teams. All of which has a positive impact on the service we provide to the public.

How you can support the event

We are inviting local businesses and other organisations to support our People Awards. We have several sponsorship packages to choose from that should suit all budgets.

We would be delighted if you would support the event that recognises the people that work tirelessly to keep our community safe, whether that’s in their homes, at work or on their travels around Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes.

If you would like to become a sponsor or have any questions about the Awards Ceremony, please contact and we would be happy to assist you.

About the event

This year’s event was held mid July at Buckinghamshire Railway Centre. It was the first time we had formally run a People Awards since Covid-19. It was really exciting to be able to get together and recognise the remarkable work our staff do to serve the people of Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes.

The event began with a welcome drinks reception followed by a formal presentation of the awards hosted by the Deputy and Chief Fire Officers. Attendees then enjoy a buffet while celebrating the event with their colleagues.

The event was well attended by over 100 Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service staff & Fire Authority Members.

The award categories were

  • Culture & Inclusion Award
  • Health, Safety & Wellbeing Award
  • Innovation Award
  • Impact Award
  • Community Action Award
  • Rising Talent Award
  • Support Team of the Year
  • Operational Team of the Year
