About Hammersmith and Fulham Council

One of the leading local authorities in London, the council is divided into 21 wards with 50 elected councillors.

Our Trusted Fire Protection Solutions

In December 2023, Churches Fire & Security began a partnership with Hammersmith and Fulham council to service and maintain a respite property.

During our initial service visit in January 2024, our technician replaced several detectors and batteries to bring the property in-line with British Standards. Services provided to the property include heat detectors and a fire alarm system.

Responding to a Fire Emergency

In February 2024, just a month after we replaced out-of-date equipment, a candle was left burning unattended in one of the bedrooms. This caused a fire to ignite and the fire alarm to sound. Luckily a neighbour heard the alarm ringing and called the emergency services.

Thankfully, everyone was evacuated safely and no injuries were reported.

Service & Maintenance

We were informed of the fire the following day, and our technician was on-site the same day to assess the damage.

Following the visit, the system was running as required, with a quotation provided to the customer for heat detector replacements.
