Spirit of Fire 2015

2nd October 2015

INFOGRAPHICS UK LTD., the developer of FireWatch and FloSuite software for the Fire and Rescue Service, has been announced as the headline sponsor of the prestigious Spirit of Fire Awards for the fourth year running.

Now in its 10th anniversary year, Spirit of Fire 2015 will see Chief Fire Officers and members of the fire community from across the UK gather together with politicians and high-profile celebrity supporters for a glittering dinner and awards ceremony.

Infographics is delighted to be able to continue its support for the event, which is organised by The Fire Fighters Charity to honour the work of staff from the Fire and Rescue Service and members of the public, recognising acts of bravery and their dedication to fundraising.

An established and trusted supplier to the Fire and Rescue Service, Infographics is a leading Microsoft Gold Partner whose software products help clients meet complex human resource and availability management requirements, eliminate 'silo' working practices, join-up departments, reduce risk and increase efficiency.

To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, an era in which The Fire Fighters charity was first established, as well as the 10th anniversary of the Spirit of Fire, the event will this year go ‘back to the Blitz’ with a distinct 1940s theme.

Ken Seager, Chairman of The Fire Fighters Charity, said:

"We are delighted to welcome our friends from Infographics as main sponsors at this year’s Spirit of Fire awards. This is the fourth year Infographics has supported this event, and we would like to thank them for their continued support of the Charity. We look forward to a fantastic evening with lots of worthy nominees from the fire and rescue service community and beyond.

“Russell Wood, Director of Sales at Infographics, will once again join us to present an award at this year’s glittering ceremony, themed around the inception of the Charity during the Blitz.”

Russell Wood, Director of Sales for Infographics, said:

"It is so important that people are recognised for the challenging work the fire and rescue community does every day, and the extra time and effort they also put into raising money for colleagues in need, and their families, through charity initiatives.
