Fire safety must be maintained during lockdown


Fire equipment maintenance is an essential service that must continue regardless of the pandemic, Wormald Australia CEO Andrew Lee is reminding business and property managers

While the nation is in lock down to minimise the spread of COVID-19, there is still the need to maintain essential services. Wormald is urging facility managers not to neglect essential maintenance of fire protection systems during this time.

Our decades of experience have shown that it is in times such as these, where activity within and around a facility changes from its normal operating pattern, the fire risk is heightened.

Therefore, it is a more important time than ever for all fire systems in all buildings to continue to be inspected and maintained, ensuring they will operate in accordance with their design intent and purpose.

Wormald is well positioned to continue performing essential service and maintenance tasks, working closely with businesses to maintain critical fire protection systems in accordance with regulations. The fire protection specialist also understands the heightened safety and hygiene requirements for sensitive locations.

Our technicians have access to appropriate PPE to prevent the spread of the virus in at risk occupant environments, including buildings holding our most vulnerable citizens such as aged care facilities and hospitals.
