We install self-testing fire alarm detectors at our offices!

Today we successfully completed the transition to self-testing fire devices in our offices. A big thank you to Lee Ellis who completed this work for us.

As you may know already, GENT have been rolling out their new self-testing devices in recent months and both they and us expect this technology will really come to the fore in the coming years. Essentially, the detectors in our office now test themselves under instruction, no longer requiring smoke poles & heat testers to test them – this all runs via GENT’s CLSS online platform.

We attend FIREX

What a great opportunity FIREX International has been to catch-up with a number of familiar faces and also see the latest technologies available in our industry.

We deployed different teams of PFS staff each day with 12 staff going in total across the three day. It was great to be back at the EXCEL for the first time since before the pandemic and it was the first FIREX for several new members of staff to the business who have joined in the past few years.

We Hold An Office Sports Day

Earlier this month we held our inaugural Office Sports Day with our Southend Office Team. The idea behind this was to promote healthy activity but also get a nice team bonding exercise going.

First of all it was fantastic to get everyone out of the office for a couple of hours of fun in our local park, I think everyone was pretty tired afterwards!
