Saxon Fire is a genuine local family business, operated by Bury St Edmunds resident Iain Grimmer and his sons. With over 30 years’ combined experience in the fire industry, and the sort of commitment to service and customer care that the best family firms have, Saxon Fire have become the preferred supplier of fire extinguishers, fire extinguishing equipment and fire training to many businesses in Bury and beyond.
Fire safety and prevention are facts of life for most employers, even if their premises are not the kinds of hazardous places in which you’d expect fire to break out. There are a number of regulations which cover fire safety, fire training for employees, and the type, quantity and location of fire extinguishers required in each building.
It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the various regulations are followed, and the easiest way to do this is to ask a firm like Saxon Fire for help.

Fire Extinguisher Maintenance
At most workplaces there must be a designated "responsible person" who must "ensure that the premises and any facilities, equipment and devices provided in respect of the premises …are subject to a suitable system of maintenance and are maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair".
One aspect of this requirement is the regular (usually annual) servicing of fire extinguishers and other fire extinguishing equipment, so that they actually work if you ever need them.
An annual service contract with Saxon Fire is the most cost-effective way to ensure all your fire safety requirements are covered and fire extinguishers kept in good working condition. Their team are all members of the UK Fire Association, and qualified in the servicing of portable fire extinguishers in accordance with the requirements of BS5306.
Their comprehensive fire extinguisher servicing packages allow you to rest assured that your fire extinguishers will be professionally serviced and maintained at the required frequencies according to their type and current guidelines. Their extended service contract even includes all spares and scheduled refills (minimum 6 extinguishers).
Here we go with more regulations folks – we know you love them (don’t forget they’re actually keeping you safe every day). The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 means that employers must ensure that their employees are trained in the use of fire extinguishers, and are aware of all matters relating to fire safety.
Be aware there are stiff penalties for employers who fail to follow the regulations, but in fact they don’t have to be a burden; Saxon Fire can deliver short fire training courses tailored to your company’s needs, to bring your staff up to speed on the fire extinguishing equipment they may to need to use.
