Extra staff join fire safety firm

Business | Press | News

Two new full time members of staff have recently joined Newflame, fire safety specialists, based in Peterborough.

Both Jason Hill and Peter Best have taken up roles in the new in-house fire alarm division. These full time positions reflect the growth of Newflame and its expanding service range over the last 12 months.

Jason Hill, 22, joins a team of 18 at the Peterborough fire safety company in Yaxley.

Newflame began trading in 1975 and moved to its current location in 2006. Jason began his career at the age of 17 as a fire safety technician. In his own time, he has been working hard to complete a two year course to become fully qualified as an electrician. He completed his 17th Edition City and Guilds qualification in May 2009, which means he is fully up to date with his understanding of the Institute of Electrical Engineers’ wiring regulations.

A native of Peterborough, Jason lives in Dogsthorpe and says, “With my qualification complete, I am enjoying everything about my role with Newflame. I get out and about to see and work with customers on a daily basis. We are really developing our own specialism in fire alarm maintenance, service and repair. I am also using my skills in the second part of my role at Newflame, maintaining and repairing emergency lighting systems.”

Newflame truly is a family firm and the latest recruit to take on an apprenticeship position is the owners’ middle son, Peter Best.

At 17, Peter is working with Jason and is learning a lot from him. Peter is at college studying electrical installation on a day release and working full time for the firm. Peter says, “It’s fun working alongside Jason, which is a healthy way to learn new skills from him. I like working with such a great team, both on the road and back at base.“ Steve and June Best’s eldest son Stephen (now 20) joined the firm in 2007 and successfully passed his BAFE Registered Technicians’ exam the following year.
