East Riding of Yorkshire Council


The situation

Back in 2014, East Riding of Yorkshire Council required servicing of their sites and the work was tendered and subsequently awarded to Walker Fire. This included the full servicing of all fire extinguishers and fire safety compliance at each site, including signage and all other equipment, alongside a range of our fire safety services to ensure compliance at all times.  

The solution

Walker Fire work alongside East Riding of Yorkshire Council to ensure all of their sites are fully compliant with current legislation. A service agreement was put in place for us to work with the council on a year by year. We also go beyond the call of duty to assist and provide advice on fire safety and any concerns.

Due to the nature of council budgets and requirements, the sites are continually changing, which presents a unique challenge. Through our approach we have been able to minimise any impact and disruption, as well as keep costs low by re-deploying assets when and wherever they are required.

“Walker Fire currently service and maintain the sprinkler systems, dry risers and fire extinguishers in all our corporate and education establishment.

They always work in a courteous, respectful and efficient manner whilst maintaining a very competitive price.

As we have reduced our portfolio, Walker Fire has assisted with the redistribution of extinguishers which has reduced our installation and service costs.

I would have no problem with recommending Walker Fire to anyone.”
