Following an unforeseen fire incident which required the use of fire extinguishers, Lincolnshire County Council contacted Freedom Fire & Security to explore the replacement of the P50 Fire Extinguishers.
Gainsborough, England

Project Overview

The Household Waste Recycling Centre in Gainsborough, operated by Lincolnshire County Council, plays a crucial role in managing waste disposal and recycling for the local community. The facility is an essential part of the council's commitment to environmental sustainability.

Recently, an unforeseen fire incident occurred at the recycling centre, which required the use of the facility's fire extinguishers, specifically the P50s. Recognising the importance of maintaining a robust fire safety infrastructure, Lincolnshire County Council promptly contacted Freedom Fire & Security to explore the replacement of the fire extinguishers.

What Services Did We Offer

Upon receiving a report of a fire incident at the Household Waste Recycling Centre, Freedom swiftly responded to assess the situation and address the fire extinguisher needs of Lincolnshire County Council. To ensure client safety, we collaborated with Britannia Fire, the P50 fire extinguishers manufacturer.

As the P50s are covered under warranty, Britannia Fire refilled the extinguisher free of charge. This warranty coverage saved the client substantial costs and demonstrated Briannia's commitment to fire safety.

Freedom coordinated the refill to ensure minimal disruption to the recycling centre's operations. Our team ensured that the extinguishers were promptly refilled and returned to the site, ready to address any potential fire emergencies.

The Outcome

Our client was impressed with the P50 Fire Extinguisher's firefighting capabilities, which effectively contained the fire and prevented further damage. The key advantage of P50 lies in its versatility, as it can cover multiple fire risk scenarios. The versatility minimises the risk of incorrect action during a fire, providing peace of mind to the facility's staff and visitors.

Our prompt and efficient response, coupled with Britannia's generous warranty support, allowed us to successfully address the fire extinguisher needs of Lincolnshire County Council's Household Waste Recycling Centre. The incident not only highlighted the reliability of the P50 fire extinguisher, but also indicated our commitment to ensuring the safety and security of our clients in the public sector.
