DWFRS Fire Stations Contract
Churchill Environmental Services has won a three-year contract to provide water hygiene, Legionella management and reactive maintenance services at 50 fire stations operated by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service (DWFRS).
DWFRS, which was established in 2016, serves a population of 1.45 million residents in the local authority areas of Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole, Dorset, Swindon and Wiltshire in southern England with its range of fire prevention, protection, and response services.
The contract additionally includes provision of services at five head office building locations, two training centres, vehicle workshops, and a control centre.
Jerry Welch, property services manager for DWFRS, comments: “We were impressed by Churchill’s quality assurance and pricing during the tender process and are delighted to start this partnership. We are a geographically dispersed organisation and need a partner that can commit to serving each location in a timely manner. Churchill fits the bill perfectly.”
Spencer Culley, Churchill Environmental Services director, adds: “Water hygiene is so important, especially in fire stations that may not be in use around the clock. Compliance can be further complicated by having so many sites across a wide area.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with a client that provides such a key public service and look forward to doing out bit in keeping fire fighters safe and healthy.”
