Wessex Fire & Security look after the maintenance of the portable fire extinguishers held within Wilts and Dorset’s sites across the region. We inspect, maintain and replace their extinguishers through a combination of annual scheduled maintenance and call outs. Our works are completed fully in accordance with the requirements of British Standards (BS5306). In addition to looking after their portable fire equipment we also provide training on its use to Wilts and Dorset staff.
Since the introduction of the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order in 2006, it has been the responsibility of companies and organisations to ensure that not only do they provide the means to tackle fire but also the training to effectively use this equipment. Wessex Fire and Security offer a range of courses tailored to meet the specific requirements of our customers.
Nick Elliott, Health and Safety Officer, Wilts and Dorset Bus Company said “Wessex Fire & Security Services continue to provide us with quality and reliable workmanship in all aspects of fire safety equipment and systems. We have an enviable one call contact relationship and always find their engineers friendly and helpful when they arrive on site”
