Churchill Environmental Services (CES) has won a three year contract with the Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service (DWFRS). CES will provide water hygiene and Legionella management, Legionella risk assessments and reactive repairs. The contract includes the option of a fourth year.

The DWFRS was formed on 1st April 2016 and serves the local authority areas of Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole, Dorset, Swindon, and Wiltshire. The organisation delivers a range of prevention, protection, and response services to over 1.45 million residents.

CES will provide services at the fifty fire stations across the region. Nine of these are wholetime stations, four are day-crewed and the remainder are crewed by retained fire fighters. CES will also look after five head offices, two training centres, two vehicle workshops and a control centre.

Jerry Welch, property services manager at the Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: “We were impressed by Churchill’s quality assurance and pricing during the tender process and are delighted to start this partnership. We are a geographically dispersed organisation and need a partner that can commit to serving each location in a timely manner. Churchill fits the bill perfectly.”

Spencer Culley, director at Churchill Environmental Services, said: “Water hygiene is so important, especially in fire stations that may not be in used around the clock. We’re thrilled to be partnering with a client that provides such a key public service and look forward to introducing some exciting technical  innovations to bring further insight into the estate’s general building performance to continue to ensure the health and wellbeing of the fire fighters and other occupants.”
