Warringtonfire and the defence industry

Warringtonfire has been working with the defence industry for over 30 years. The breadth and depth of our full-service testing, inspection, certification and advisory services enable us to draw on global expertise from many different disciplines. This wealth of experience and diversity of knowledge allows us to create the most optimized, cost-effective solutions for your defence project.

Why fire safety in defence

The defence industry is often under greater scrutiny than most because it is usually government-funded and tasked with protecting people from dangers often unseen. This industry must work to the highest standards, and fire safety is vital in all that they undertake.

Who would benefit from Warringtonfire defence services

Our engaged experts can work on defence fire safety projects with:

  • Emergency Services Officers
  • Emergency response and rescue personnel e.g. Fire and rescue services and Road crash rescue teams
  • Outsourced safety/emergency response trainers
  • Site managers of high risk sites requiring specific fire safety engineering solutions and risk training
  • Safety Advisors/Safety Officers

How can Warringtonfire help with your defence fire safety project

Warringtonfire can work with the defence industry to ensure that their budgets and timelines are met with the most significant attention to fire safety. From flammability, toxicity and smoke density testing of products used in defence site buildings, temporary structures and in the field, to fire safety engineering to ensure that all elements are fit for purpose and regulations and codes are adhered to, Warringtonfire works with you as a partner.
