Allegion UK Steps up to The Challenge, Raising Awareness for Fire Safety

Allegion UK, a leading specialist in fire safety and security products and solutions, last week took an impressive 533,321 steps towards raising £500 in aid of Fire Door Safety Week (FDSW) and The Fire Fighters Charity.

Using two treadmills, 35 employees from the Allegion UK team worked as one to take part in their corporate challenge to walk, run, jog or dance 500,000 steps in four days.

During the challenge, the team joined forces with the West Midlands Fire Service (WMFS), who visited the Allegion offices in Aston, Birmingham, to help them achieve their ambitious goal.

James Marriott, station commander from WMFS, said:
“We had a fantastic time supporting Allegion UK and thank the staff who took part in this challenge. I’m certain that the funds raised for the charity will make a significant difference to fire fighters and their families who are going through difficult times.
“With our mission being to ‘make the West Midlands safer, stronger and healthier’ and Allegion’s purpose of ‘create peace of mind by pioneering safety and security,’ I am in no doubt that we will continue to work together to promote fire safety.’’

Pete Hancox, commercial leader UK & Ireland, celebrated the combined efforts: 
“In current circumstances, it is more important than ever to make people aware of fire safety. Each year our team makes a huge effort in raising awareness – this year was no different. 
“It was also brilliant to welcome the fire service to help us reach our target. Each step taken truly did count towards us raising money for such a worthy cause.’’
FDSW (23-29 September 2019), run by British Woodworking Federation (BWF) and the BWF Fire Door Alliance, aims to increase public understanding of the fundamental role fire doors play in protecting life and property. 

This year’s campaign explores the crucial role fire doors have in protecting us when we are asleep, with a particular focus on specialised housing and HMOs (House in Multiple Occupation).

Last year, the campaign reached a new high, gaining support from more than 350 individuals, organisations and businesses.
