Swift Action Brings Recognition Award For G4S Employee

G4S (USA) : 01 November, 2010  (Company News)
Well-coordinated action in demanding circumstances during a Memphis hotel fire has brought recognition for a G4S custom protection officer
Igor Kovacevic, a G4S Custom Protection Officer who extinguished a hotel fire in Memphis and helped to evacuate 130 occupants safely, has received the Brownyard Award for Meritorious Service presented at the ASIS Foundation Dinner on October 14th in Dallas, Texas. Each year, the Brownyard Award is presented to a security professional to honor heroism in the execution of his or her duties. Mr Kovacevic has also received the Security Officer of the Year Award from his employer, G4S Secure Solutions (USA).

When Mr Kovacevic discovered a fire on Dec. 14, 2009, at a Memphis, Tennessee hotel, he quickly grabbed a fire extinguisher and directed the desk clerk to call 911. He immediately cut off electricity to the affected building and began evacuating the first and second floor of the hotel. Mr Kovacevic then made his way to the burning room and put out the flames. Driven back by the thick smoke, he exited the room to wait for the Memphis Fire Department to arrive. In addition to saving the lives of 130 hotel occupants, Mr Kovacevic's actions also saved the client thousands of dollars in repair costs.

"We congratulate Igor Kovacevic on his well-deserved recognition," said Drew Levine, President, G4S Secure Solutions (USA). "We are very happy and honored that a G4S Secure Solutions Custom Protection Officer was selected for this year's Brownyard Award. Igor's dedication and heroism reflect well on the thousands of other G4S security officers who perform critical duties to protect people, property and assets for our customers throughout the country."

Founded by William Brownyard in 1950, the Brownyard Group provides specialized liability insurance coverage, beginning with the security industry. Brownyard first presented the award in 1987.
