Fire service contract
26 January 2018
Chubb Fire & Security has won a contract with Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service to install, upgrade, maintain and monitor fire alarm systems throughout the service's entire estate.
The contract includes 28 fire stations, two community safety centres, Cheshire Fire and Rescue’s Sadler Road site and the new safety centre based in Lymm. Each site is a different size and specification, requiring detailed individual assessments. Some stations required new custom systems to be designed; in other buildings, existing systems were upgraded.
Chubb was chosen over four other suppliers because it scored highest against benchmarked requirements. The primary goal of the new contract was to ensure all sites meet BS5839 L2 fire alarm safety standards.
All alarms are monitored by Chubb’s alarm receiving centre, which notifies keyholders and relevant emergency services if a fire is detected and alarm raised. The contract also includes maintenance and servicing requirements.
