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.

Event Operational Response Cover

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.
