Policing & Custodial

Policing & Custodial

Policing and custodial facilities managers have a huge responsibility and duty of care to ensure that appropriate governance arrangements relating to fire safety systems are in place and managed effectively across a very diverse, often high-risk estate where fire systems need to protect people, animals, property, and the assets within.

Having to understand and manage the risk of fire to high value property and operational critical assets ranging from aircraft, communication systems, firearms, dogs, and horses that support and work with officers through to evidence relied upon for criminal trials, this is a situation where our “critical friend” service is demonstratable as adding huge value.

We recognise that the effectiveness of the emergency lighting is critical in policing and custodial environments due to the lighting not being relied on solely to escape the building but the reliance on it to aid those to continue working and reassure those detained.

With our demonstratable knowledge and experience you can Rely on Fire Check to design and audit fire safety systems in policing and custodial premises to protect those working to protect public safety.
