Case Study

South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare Trust
2,200 extinguishers over 107 sites

The South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare Trust provides mental health, learning disability and specialist children’s services in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Powys as well as some services on a wider regional or national basis.

The nature of the contract means that extinguishers are spread across a wide area. In addition, access is often challenging and the working environment is highly sensitive. Without an asset register, or a dedicated service engineer, this had become difficult for the Trust to manage.

To provide us with greater accountability, Firemark created a digital asset register and provided a dedicated engineer with a PDA handset that had access to every record. This simplified record-keeping and increased efficiency. A single point of contact also guaranteed greater consistency and an accurate picture of our extensive fire safety network. We now have a ‘standard’ to work to.
