Mitie has won a contract to supply cleaning services at 16 of Cleveland Fire Brigade's sites, including 14 fire stations, plus its fire control room, which handles all 999 emergency calls for the area's firefighting team.
The contract is initially for a three-year term with the option to extend for a further two years.
Mitie will be providing cleaning services at Endeavour House, Queens Meadow Business Park as well as locations in Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, and Stockton-On-Tees.
Cleveland Fire Brigade, which employs about 600 people across the region, covers 597 square kilometres around the mouth of the River Tees, taking in at least 560,000 residents and 249,000 homes. Its control room is staffed 24/7, 365 days a year to handle all 999 emergency calls.
Mitie will use a specialist data capturing system to support staff working on the contract to schedule and complete tasks with ease and efficiency. In addition to this, Mitie will increase sustainability credentials across Cleveland Fire Brigade's estate by testing and deploying a range of eco-friendly cleaning products, which will also reduce the amount of single-use packaging used at the site.
