What is the difference between a PIB and SIB?
They’re the same, a Premises Information Box (PIB) is the original Gerda name for a secure facility to store information about a building for use by the fire service during an incident, which is now also know by the generic term secure information box (SIB). PIBs are referred to in the initial Grenfell Tower Inquiry and FIA NFCC Code of Practice (for the provision of Premises Information Boxes in Residential Buildings) with the regulations simply referring to secure information boxes (now termed SIB).
With a Gerda PIB you’re installing the original SIB developed with the fire and rescue service.
How do I go about providing an Emergency Response Pack?
Having worked with the FIA/NFCC on the ERP guidelines (as acknowledged in the Code of Practice listed on Gov.uk regulation 6), Gerda provides a complete ERP Plan Service with annual audit & maintenance option for total piece-of-mind.
Do I need new plans every year?
As a minimum the regulations require the RP (responsible person) to inspect annually and ensure contents are up to date, which Gerda can do as part of a 5-year ERP Plans Service and Maintenance Package. Although your plans will only need renewing if any of the required elements have changed.
Do you offer maintenance services?
Yes, Gerda offers an array of maintenance services to ensure the longevity of our solutions. Additionally, our annual maintenance program can be tied to your fire safety risk assessment schedule.
