Fire alarm servicing for Birmingham housing association
Friday has come around very quickly again, but it has certainly been another prosperous week at Jackson Fire & Security here in the Midlands. Monday and Tuesday were dedicated to fire alarm servicing and emergency light testing at properties across the Midlands known as HMO’s (houses of multiple occupancy) for Spring Housing Association. The fire alarms and emergency lighting in these types of properties can often be in poor condition having not been serviced for some time. When Spring Housing took over these properties they instructed us to complete a “take-over” service to understand the state of the systems and crucially if they are compliant with current British Standards BS5839-6. Our trained engineers complete the fire alarm servicing and emergency light testing, issue a report to the housing association who then sign off the remedial work required. This process ensures all tenants are protected and the housing association know that all the properties they manage are compliant. fire alarm servicing walsall On Tuesday we also completed fire risk assessments at two large buildings in Lichfield for a well-known developer. This flagged up a lack of proper management of the premises in relation to fire safety, which in turn has led to lots of smaller issues that now need to be rectified. Wednesday and Thursday involved helping with fire alarm, fire extinguisher, CCTV & intruder alarm service work across Bedfordshire in liaison with our Cambridgeshire branch. Friday has been a day of commissioning a fire alarm at a block of flats amongst other works, whilst the office has been a busy place preparing paperwork and drawings for installation work to be carried out in the next two weeks. Next week we will have engineers at a care home in Nottingham installing a fire alarm, an engineer commissioning a fire alarm system in Sutton Coldfield and lots of emergency lights to replace around Birmingham. Positive meetings have been held this week with a facilities management company, a large leisure centre and a tender completed for a local charitable trust who manage care homes. All in all an excellent week. If you would like to book a free fire and security review of your systems in the Midlands, please contact us here.
