ADSM helps the Fire Service to save water
The Fire Service College is the leading training establishment of its kind in the world, providing the fire industry with a wide variety of training and incident-simulation scenarios at its Moreton-in-Marsh site in Gloucestershire.
Creating accidents, staging fires, re-creating road, rail, aircraft and shipping incidents, and chemical plant, oil storage, industrial and offshore emergencies are undertaken routinely. The strictest standards of safety are, of course, maintained at all times.
With unrivalled expertise in fire safety and fire engineering, the College also offers professionally validated courses.
In addition to state-of-the-art conference facilities, the Fire Service College has residential facilities for 600 students together with extensive recreational facilities, including a self-contained leisure centre with squash courts, a full-sized swimming pool, a fitness room and a large, multi-sports hall. Outdoors there are football and rugby pitches and a golf practice area.
They also have offices in Gloucestershire and London.
Water health check
Having seen ADSM present at a recent Roadshow, the Fire Service College visited ADSM’s website and completed a Water Health Check online to see how their water consumption compared to benchmark usage. The results showed that the Fire Service College and its sites were over-consuming water against national benchmarks for similar facilities.
By analysing 12 months’ historic consumption data, ADSM was able to confirm that there was definitely room for some significant savings – both financial savings and savings in water consumption – and came to the Fire Service College’s rescue with an AquaFund Water Services Contract.
ADSM’s AquaFund Scheme covers the installation of state of the art water-saving technologies, evaluation of their operating practices, management of their tariffs and bills, and other water saving measures, ADSM was able to save the Fire Service College 10% on their water bill in just the first quarter of this contract, with an annual consumption saving of 39%, year-on-year.
Maintaining water-saving efficiencies
ADSM provides all the assistance the Fire Service College needs to maintain the water usage efficiencies and financial savings throughout the life of the AquaFund Contract and beyond.
