Finalists have been announced for major awards celebrating the unsung heroes of critical control rooms.
The APD Control Room Awards 2019 attracted almost 400 nominations from emergency services and other critical control operations, the vast majority recognising the extraordinary work of individual personnel.
The awards are being staged for the second year in 2019 and have generated almost twice as many entries as for the inaugural event.
The shortlisted entries recognise the remarkable, behind-the-scenes work of control room staff in keeping the public safe and secure and responding to the most challenging and harrowing emergency incidents.
