Covid-19 Update – Lockdown Update 1 April 2020

We are currently facing never-before-seen circumstances. During times of public turmoil, it is vital that Fire & Security Systems remain in full working order to protect homes and businesses. We want to reassure you of our emergency plans, and contingencies during these uncertain times in order to maintain our high level of services to you. Given the latest current Government guidelines, we have now moved from our ‘Business as Normal’ Phase and now implemented our initial ‘Partial Lockdown’ phase. Lifeline staff have been identified as ‘Key Workers’, in supporting and protecting Island Homes and Business and we will continue to do so, albeit in slightly amended formats. We are taking these actions to be responsible and to contribute our small part in limiting the effect and spread of the Coronavirus. We must all follow the relevant advice and take care of ourselves and others.

Please follow government advice, Stay At Home, Save Lives, Protect the NHS.
