Monday 27th November 2017
On Wednesday 22nd November, former BAFE Technical Schemes Manager Tony Maskens received the illustrious Ian Marsh Fire Award. This award recognises individuals within the fire and emergency systems industry who have demonstrated enormous enthusiasm and commitment to improving this sector.
Up until his retirement in 2016, Tony held a significant role at BAFE developing industry standards that support British Standards within the fire industry. His efforts and hard work have helped BAFE schemes grow and become technically stronger with the support of UKAS accredited third party certification bodies. This in turn has created better working practices within specific areas of the fire safety industry.
BAFE are extremely proud to see Tony receive this award. Stephen Adams, Chief Executive at BAFE, stated:
“Tony has made a significant contribution to BAFE and the wider fire protection industry with his tireless involvement in scheme development and support for the principles of third party certification. His efforts being acknowledged within the fire safety arena is a huge honour and thoroughly deserved. He has dedicated a substantial amount of his career in helping make the fire industry considerably safer.”
The BAFE team extends our congratulations to Tony.
