Chubb Fire & Security has been awarded an integrated fire and security service contract to help protect pupils and staff at the popular Gilmour Infant School in Liverpool.

The contract covers security equipment for classrooms, common areas, kitchens and workshops. Chubb recommended and installed a monitoring network that connects the school’s existing security infrastructure with Chubb’s Alarm Receiving Centre that monitors and records activity for review.

“By offering an integrated contract, Chubb has been able to provide a tailored, highly versatile and competitively-priced service for us,” said Marion De Vaal, business manager at the Gilmour Infant School.

Gary Moffat (general manager of the Liverpool branch at Chubb Fire & Security) told Risk UK: “Offering a tailored and integrated service adds to customer convenience while providing contract-specific engineers realises service enhancement. More and more councils and private sector companies are seeking the convenience of one single point of contact for all of their fire and security servicing needs.”
