Alarm has awarded honorary life membership to Rich Vincelette and Max Andrews.

Vincelette, the senior vice president of Munich American Risk Partners, and Andrews, a founder member who runs Alarm's administrative head office in Exmouth, received the awards at the conference.

Chairman Kevin McGlone said the awards recognised the pair's personal and professional support for the assocation over many years.

In 1999, Andrews was awarded an MBE for services to the police and his local community.
