As part of out ongoing social responsibility, our director, Gary Bennett, is the chair of a charity called SERA known as the Scottish Emergency Rescue Association.
SERA in partnership with Blythswood Care have delivered over 35 fully equipped fire appliances and 9 ambulances to countries such as Serbia, Moldova and Romania.
In Romania, we were instrumental in the building of a new fire station; funding of a fire fighting team and provision of a fully equipped fire engine which will serve the local community of Floresti near Cluj.
In Serbia we delivered our 23rd fully equipped vehicle which will assist the fire fighters in Nis to safely remove people trapped in road traffic accidents as well as assist with their normal fire fighting and rescue duties within the city of Nis which is home to over 350,000 people.
In 2017 SERA will deliver a further 5 fully equipped fire appliances and 1 ambulance to Serbia as well as supplying over £1 million of equipment to Moldova.

In short – the answer is no – but you can make small changes which can make a massive difference as well as keeping you legal!

Risk management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events or to maximize the realization of opportunities.

Life may be complicated, but maintaining your legal position in terms of fire safety need not.

Braidwood Fire specialise in Fire Risk Assessments which not only fulfil your statutory obligation, but keep your business and more importantly employees safe from fire.

We specialise in fire prevention and proactive fire safety management which in the event of any accidental fire, minimises risk, damage and business interruption.

Anyone who has some form of control of a premise, or part of a premise, must take reasonable steps to reduce risk from fire and make sure people can escape safely. You therefore may have a statutory responsibility to conduct a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment of the area under your control under either the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 or the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 Part 3
