Retailers are often faced with a range of challenges when ensuring their premises meet all fire safety requirements. In particular, retailers which have premises located in a shopping centre or mall will not only need to be aware of the wider mall fire strategy, they may need to comply with additional safety regulations or procedures.
Retailers also need to be conscious of the proximity of other shops – which may be physically joined to their own premises and have shared fire safety provisions.
Other key issues include the storage and protection of their in-house stock, as well as security of any cash left on the premises during an evacuation.
Total Fire Services has worked with many leading retailers both within their own buildings and within a mall setting. As well as delivering comprehensive Fire Risk Assessments which ensure full legal compliance, we pride ourselves on working in partnership with these clients, delivering ongoing advice and support, such as advising on potential new premises or the conversion and refitting of existing buildings.
“Total Fire Services are professional, friendly and, above all, true experts in their field. I am delighted with this partnership and look forward to working with Total Fire Services for many years to come.”

What they say
"Due to internal resource issues we at Chessington World Of Adventures were struggling to meet our commitments of having "suitable and sufficient" fire risk assessment for all of our buildings and Rides on site. Meeting the challenge of maintaining our continued commitment to having "suitable and sufficient" fire risk assessments in place for all of our buildings and Rides on site required us to search for a competent third party supplier who could deliver our needs at a reasonable cost"
