Client Case Studies
Southern Care Home Chain – the brief
A successful and growing group of care homes for the elderly had a number of properties across the south of England. They also had a number of different contractors carrying out the maintenance of the fire extinguishers, fire alarms and emergency lighting across the group. Additionally, there were another set of companies providing fire safety training and fire risk assessments. Keeping track of expenditure and ensuring a consistent fire safety strategy across the company was becoming very challenging, to say the least. How could the company get a grip on its overheads at the same time as delivering an effective fire safety strategy?
Dorset Fire Protection was able to offer a complete fire safety package for the whole group. From the maintenance of the equipment to the provision of advice in relation to evacuation procedures, the client only had one phone call to make. Not only was the client able to promote a consistent approach to fire safety in all the care homes, but they were also able to manage their expenditure more efficiently, benefitting from preferential group deals and planned improvements.
