Mitie cleans up with Cleveland Fire Brigade
Mitie has won a new contract to provide cleaning services across 16 of Cleveland Fire Brigade's sites, including 14 fire stations plus its fire control room which handles all 999 emergency calls for the area's firefighting team. The contract is initially for a three-year term with the option to extend for a further two years.
Mitie will be providing cleaning services at Endeavour House, Queens Meadow Business Park as well as locations in Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, and Stockton-On-Tees.
Cleveland Fire Brigade, which employs around 600 people across the region, covers 597 square kilometres around the mouth of the River Tees including over 560,000 residents and 249,000 homes. Its control room is staffed 24/7, 365 days a year to handle all 999 emergency calls requiring a fire service in the area.
Mitie will use a specialist data capturing system which will support staff working the contract to schedule and complete tasks with ease and efficiency. In addition to this, Mitie will increase sustainability credentials across Cleveland Fire Brigade's estate by testing and deploying a range of eco-friendly cleaning products which will also reduce the amount of single use packaging used at the site.
"We are delighted to be serving Cleveland Fire Brigade as it works round the clock to provide the local community with emergency support," says Matthew Thompson, managing director, Cleaning & Environmental Services.
"We look forward to building a valuable partnership which focuses on service and sustainability."
Darren Richards, Head of ICT and Estates, Cleveland Fire Brigade, says:
"We are really pleased to be working with Mitie, particularly in respect of their use of eco-friendly products and sustainability credentials. It is important that all our sites maintain excellent standards so they are comfortable, safe places for our workforce and any visitors."
