DSCN0028Mold-based Jackson Fire and Security are providing support to a homeless charity by carrying out free fire extinguisher servicing and installation of safety signage to their new charity shop in Chester ready for its launch. A Jackson engineer visited the premises on Northgate Street and carried out a full evaluation of the shop, servicing their fire extinguishers and the fire detection systems in place and ensuring volunteers are fire safety trained in using the equipment provided. Daron Holdcroft, the Jackson Fire and Security engineer operating the Chester area, also checked the fire alarm system and replaced a faulty detector for the shop during his visit. This would usually incur a call out charge but Jackson Fire and Security gifted this service to the charity shop to assist with their launch and ensure the premises is safe and compliant. Share (Supporting Homeless Assisting Refugees Everywhere) are a group of people and businesses that came together to offer aid to homeless people on the streets of Chester and North Wales. Share also send out aid packs of warm clothing and camping supplies to refugees all over the world. The shop will offer fashionable clothes, gifts, gadgets, toys and coffee as well as “suspended coffee” – where shoppers can buy a hot drink for a homeless person or someone struggling financially. Managing Director for Jackson Fire and Security, Steve Jackson said:
“It was a pleasure to be asked to help out with this local charity in the opening of their first shop in Chester. It was nice to be able to offer something that needs to be in place by law for the opening of any new business premises. To be able to save the charity funds by providing fire extinguishers and carrying out fault-finding on the fire alarm, therefore ensuring volunteers and visitors remain safe, was something we were very happy to do.”
A Founder of SHARE, Adam Dandy said:
"The support that we have received from Jackson Fire and Security has been tremendous. They offered to help us make our new Share Shop on Northgate Street in Chester safe for our customers and volunteers without any charge to the charity which means we can keep our costs to an absolute minimum."
