We continue to make fine adjustments to our daily operational procedures. It is still paramount to ensure that that Life Safety & Security Systems remain in full working order to protect homes and businesses, when the might be most vulnerable. Our resilience, emergency and contingency plans at Lifeline are standing up extremely well to rigorous test during this time and we are continuing to maintain our high level of services to you.
Following the latest update to Government guidelines, we continue on with our ‘Partial Lockdown’ phase however now with an aim to begin to restore some normality. Lifeline staff have been identified as ‘Key Workers’ in supporting and protecting Island Homes and Business and we will continue to do so. Works and installations are now beginning to be reactivated, however these will be taking place only in strict adherence to safe working and Social Distancing measures.
