What’s the ‘Save a Life Award’?

Since 2010, the Australian Security Medals Foundation (ASMF) has been honouring exceptional individuals in the security industry through a number of awards designed to acknowledge their contribution to the community. Partnering with St John Ambulance Australia, the ‘Save a Life Award’ recognises security officers that have been faced with making critical decisions, or taking action to save a life. The award provides a way for the community to support those who demonstrate the very best in security professionalism.

Recently, ASMF announced the 2020 recipients and 3 of our Security Officers in Melbourne received a successful nomination. This is a great achievement considering that Glad’ Security officers are often the first responders in a diverse range of emergency situations. Their first-aid capabilities and ability to effectively respond takes dedication and training and it’s always amazing to see their expertise being publicly recognised.

How did they save a life?

While noticing an incident on-site, the 3 Security officers effectively and seamlessly worked as a team to secure the area, deliver first aid assistance through CPR and AED, and alert emergency services. In this instance, the person at the centre of the incident was successfully revived and safely transported to the hospital. This was all thanks to the efforts of Glad Group’s amazing security officers that were effective every step of the way.

The Integrated Services Manager at this site, Michael Joyner was extremely proud of the team’s performance, always on hand and very supportive and said:

“I have the pleasure of working with a truly skilled and professional Security team. Fadi, Wade, and Shabnam continued to demonstrate their abilities and dedication to helping others when faced with this incident. They worked together in sync to save a life.”

We say thank you!

Glad Group is very proud of the work done by the team and applauds each of them for their heroic actions that perfectly represent our company values of Trust, Respect, Integrity, and Innovation.
