Castaways Mission Beach Resort

2015-2019 – A stunning seaside location that presents demanding Fire Detection challenges. The resort needed Fortifire’s help with a Fire System that was constantly false alarming.

We then work with site management to forecast and budget for a staged upgrade of the system. Today, instead of daily false alarms, the resort’s fire system is stable and reliable.

  • New Microprocessor based panel

  • Compatible Smoke Detectors
  • Resolved poor wiring issues

Since Fortifire has taken on Dalrymple Villa, we have received nothing but the best quality of service, to be able to have the same contractor performing  tests and audits is a bonus as it provides continuity of service without the stakeholder setting times, dates etc. and I know if and when I am not on the premises all goes to schedule. I have no areas of concern and I would highly recommend Fortifre’s services.

Joanne Boschetti

Facility Manager, Dalrymple Village Aged Care
