We hope we never need them but when we do, we can always rely on our emergency services or armed forces.
They support us in the most dire, often life-changing circumstances, whether that is emergency medical assistance or rescue. And more often than not, personnel will go above and beyond their duties to help those when they need it the most.
Highland Heroes thanks these real-life heroes with the emergency services/armed forces hero award.
The recipient will be an outstanding member of the emergency services or armed forces who has gone above and beyond the call of duty.
NOMINATE at https://www.hnmedia.co.uk/highlandheroes/ by December 17 in any of the categories.
Openreach Scotland is sponsoring the award for emergency services/armed forces hero.
Robert Thorburn, partnership director for Openreach Scotland, said: “We love being part of the Highland Heroes Awards. It’s such a positive, uplifting night celebrating the special people who really make a difference in the Highlands.
“Our category recognises the vital contribution of emergency services and armed forces in a vast, geographically challenging region where life or death may depend on these brave and selfless responders.
“It’s humbling to hear of the heroic ways they support local people and communities.
“It’s been another busy year for Openreach in the Highlands, with our Ultrafast Full Fibre broadband network continuing to expand. Our networks keep people connected and help make it possible for everyone to nominate for their Highland Heroes online! We’re really looking forward to celebrating the Highlands’ unsung heroes and can’t wait to hear about all the nominees.
“If you know someone who’s gone the extra mile, this is your chance to make sure they get the recognition they deserve.”
