We take a different approach to Fire. We look at whether you comply with the regulations first rather than what doesn't comply.There is no in between ground and many consultants will tell you
things like 'it's better to have it just in case' and 'it makes your property safer'. There is no such thing as 'safer', you're either compliant or you're not, simple as that. You can spend thousands
of pounds being safer and thousands of pounds having it just in case but why waste your money if you don't have to. We advise all of customers on compliance in a way that will save you money.
Our company philosophy is quite simple, we will look at different ways to help you achieve compliance and to help you save money, it's as simple as that!

INQUEST INTO THE DEATHS OF ALAN BANNON AND JAMES SHEARS
Death by misadventure in each case in conjunction with the following narrative:
“Firefighters Alan Bannon and James Shears died from sudden exposure to initially intense heat from 20.38 to 20.41 and thereafter to excessive heat while dealing with a fire in a flat on the 9th floor of the high-rise tower block Shirley Towers".
It is recommended that there should be an obligation to:
a) provide signage to indicate floor levels both in stairwells and lift lobbies in high rise premises, to assist the emergency services;
b) ensure that signage indicating flat numbers and emergency exits in high rise premises are placed at a low level to increase visibility in smoke conditions.
