We are proud to announce that our Managing Director, Colin Todd has received an MBE for services to fire safety. Commenting on his award, Colin said:
“I was very surprised, but extremely delighted, to receive this great honour, which I believe was the result of nomination by a number of colleagues within the fire safety profession. The year-end represented the anniversary of 44 years in the world of fire safety, having completed a masters degree in 1975, as one the cohort of the first four students in the UK to undertake higher education in fire safety engineering. This honour was a great way to end the year and celebrate the completion of another year in a profession that has given me a worthwhile career.
It is only right that I acknowledge that any contributions I have made to fire safety in the UK have not been without the considerable support and encouragement of my three children, my colleagues within my consulting practice and, over recent years, my partner, Karen. Their loyalty, support, encouragement and understanding has enabled me to give time and effort to work that strays well outside the day to day commercial work of our consulting practice. This includes work in the field of domestic fire safety, which is something of a personal hobby. In this area, there remains plenty of scope for innovation and application of the principles of fire engineering to the very premises in which most fire deaths continue to occur, albeit, happily, at a level that is the lowest experienced since records of domestic fire deaths began.”
