Bristol at the heart of Avon
Avon Fire & Rescue Service, centred on Bristol, is teaming up with Bristol Uniforms to provide its firefighter PPE from the beginning of September 2012. Following a strategic decision by the Fire & Rescue Authority in late 2010 to adopt the ICP procurement facility, Avon FRS began the move to Bristol as its new PPE supplier for its 800 firefighters. This is now being completed through the deployment of a purchase managed service (PMS) head-to-toe ICP contract involving the supply of 1700 sets of fire coats and trousers along with helmets, gloves and boots.
