Commenting on the project, Brendan Stamp, Managing Director at Guardian noted “Fire safety is paramount in facilities such as WIT Arena. Often you will have a large number of people gathered who may be unfamiliar with the building layout etc. Staff education is key – knowing how to respond and what action to take in the event of fire or alarm activation can make all the difference. We are delighted to help WIT Arena meet their fire & life safety obligations and look forward to working with them for years to come”
