Firefighters in Falmouth, Cornwall were recently called out to a fire involving a refrigeration unit in a commercial building. Few details of the fire have been released, but an ambulance was requested to treat two people on scene for smoke inhalation. The firefighters extinguished the blaze equipped with a hose reel and CO2 extinguishers. Although we do not know how heavily the property was damaged, we are reminded of the necessity of same-day chiller hire in cases such as this.
One of the biggest names in global refrigeration will be joining business, government, and academic leaders in London next month for the 'World Cold Chain Summit to Reduce Food Waste'. The inaugural summit, being organised and sponsored by Carrier, will seek to address problems with food waste around the world, and how refrigeration solutions can help mitigate it. Portable refrigeration will undoubtedly be part of the discussion.
One of the things we most enjoy about the portable cold storage business is the opportunity to help individuals and companies work out emergencies. When we can provide reliable equipment and help ease anxieties at the same time, we are also able to earn a new customer for life. There have been many such cases in the past.
The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) recently hosted a get-together with students in Birmingham as a means of introducing the young people to careers in refrigeration. The organisation also wanted to give a voice to any of the students who might want to share their thoughts, questions, and aspirations. We are interested to know whether the IOR programme will promote interest in refrigerated trailer rental.
