Recovery Patrol of the Year 2006

Vince picks up top recovery award

Vince Safe, AA recovery patrol of the year 2006 Tipton man Vince Safe has won national recognition from the UK's biggest motoring organisation by being named AA Recovery Patrol of the Year 2006.

Double celebration

The award gives Vince cause for double celebration, coming a few days after the birth of his first son, Tyler. The 39-year-old, who joined the AA in 2003, also has three daughters.

Vince was put through a gruelling selection process, scoring highly in all categories and impressing the judges with his technical knowledge as well as his customer care at the roadside.

His nomination praised him for his professional, caring attitude with members and the intelligent and conscientious way he approaches his work.

When not recovering AA members throughout the Midlands and beyond, Vince enjoys a spot of DIY, as well as motorcycling and fishing.

Commenting on winning the award, Vince says: "It's an honour to be recognised in this way. The award has capped off a busy but very happy time for me and my family."

Excellent service

AA Road Operations Director Steve Dewey says: "Vince is a shining example of the standard of our employees. Delivering excellent service is the absolute priority for the AA and it's great to be able to recognise this in our staff."
