Kent and Medway Fire & Rescue Authority
Kent and Medway Fire & Rescue Authority is committed to working together, saving lives, and reducing harm. The rescue service is responsible for the activity of more than 55 fire stations across the county including rural and urban areas.
The work of the authority is split into five key areas of responding, promoting, helping, encouraging, and supporting. Each localised rescue service works alongside other emergency services and puts the community at the heart of what they do.
With a flagpole at each location, Kent and Medway Fire & Rescue Authority needed a service provider to maintain dozens of flagpoles across the county. They were in search for an organisation who had the knowledge and expertise of different styles and types of flagpole, and how to suitably care for and maintain each one.
The Fire & Rescue Authority wanted to consolidate all their flagpole needs to one business they could trust, rather than using smaller local companies for whom flagpoles were not their speciality. This company would be responsible for ensuring all the flagpoles were not only looking their best but complying to all safety standards too.
Flagmakers worked with Kent and Medway Fire & Rescue Authority to create a suitable schedule to maintain and care for all their flagpoles. On a yearly basis, each flagpole is visited by our highly skilled team of flagpole engineers and given a complete service.
The flagpole is cleaned from top to bottom, a new rope is fitted, and all fixtures are checked for rust, wear and tear, and any other damage. Once the flagpole has been thoroughly checked, it can be scheduled for the next service.
