We specialise in providing realistic and cost effective solutions to the fire safety problems posed by large outdoor public events and music festivals. Through our dedicated professional service we have earned the reputation as being ‘The Event Fire Cover Specialists’.

Our continued investment in the company means that we are able to provide a ‘One Stop’ Fire Safety and Response Service for your event. This means that there is a single point of contact for Fire Safety and Response Cover available pre-event, on site during the event and post event, to manage Fire Safety and Response on your site.

Our services include:

  • Fire Risk Assessments
  • Fire Risk Management Plans
  • Fire Safety Inspections and Audits
  • Fire Safety Enforcement
  • Emergency Evacuation Planning (including Occupancy and Exit Calculations)
  • Evacuation Strategies
  • Local Authority Liaison (including providing representatives for Safety Advisory Groups)
  • Catering Accreditation
  • Fire Extinguisher Hire, Delivery and Distribution
  • Fire Cover
  • Safety Boat Cover

Prior to the event our Fire Safety Advisors can carry out fully detailed Fire Risk Assessments, that cover the Build, Event and Break phases. Once a Fire Risk Assessment has been conducted the significant findings will be explained and an action plan produced and agreed.

We can offer Gas safety advice and inspections on site as a Gas Safe registered company, with engineers holding national accredited certification scheme qualifications in both natural and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG).  We also provide Catering Accreditation where we check your Caterers Health and Fire Safety documentation prior to them arriving on site, providing the reassurance that they are meeting their statutory obligations.

With over 400 portable fire extinguishers in our Hire Stock, we cannot only supply the quantity of extinguishers, but we can supply the signs, stands and train your staff in the selection and safe use of them. We can also distribute the extinguishers around the site, collect them in after the event and our Fire Extinguishing Trades Association trained engineers can refill them on site, as required.

We can provide Fire Alarm Design, Installation, Maintenance and Hire, ranging from a Hand Operated Rotary Bell to a fully Automated Fire Detection System. Our Fire Industry Association trained Engineers can Design, Install and Maintain the appropriate fire warning systems required to cover both temporary and permanent structures on site.

During the Build, Event and Break Phases of your event, we can provide First Response Fire and Rescue Cover, with the aim to minimise the damage caused by a fire/fire related emergency incident, in the absence of, or until the arrival of, the Local Fire Service. Cover can be arranged in either 12 or 24 hour periods, with standby being given during the day, evening or a combination of both. We can tailor make a cover package to meet the individual needs of your event, ensuring that the crews and appliances are present when the risks are at their greatest.

We operate a diverse fleet of operational fire appliances, specialising in dedicated off road vehicles ranging from Rapid Intervention Vehicles to Targeted response Vehicles.

First Response Fire and Rescue Cover is available as a single service, but is generally supplied as part of an Event Fire Safety Package, combined with the Fire Risk Assessment, Fire Safety Training and Fire Extinguisher and Alarm Hire. This means that as well as responding to incidents the crews will be available to conduct Fire safety Inspections (as specified within the Fire Risk Assessment), to conduct Fire Safety Patrols and to test any Fire Alarm/Fire Warning Systems and record the findings. All incidents and inspections are fully recorded, detailing times, delays, attendance and action taken.

Competency is obviously a serious issue when providing an operational fire and rescue response service, this why our fire appliances are crewed by fully trained and experienced fire-fighters. We recognise our duty of care to both our staff and any other person on site, which is why we provide both in-house and external refresher training to all of our fire-fighters.

We provide a full Health, Safety and Environmental Pack prior to the event, that includes copies of our Health and Safety Policy, Environmental Policy, Operational and Work Activity Risk Assessments and Copies of our Employers, Public and Product Liability Insurance Certificates. The level of cover for our Employees Liability Insurance is ten million pounds, and five million pounds for our Public Liability, which covers operational response.
