Paignton Zoo - Creating a Safer Environment For Animals And Visitors with New Fire Alarm and CCTV Upgrades

Westcountry Fire Protection had the pleasure of collaborating with Paignton Zoo, a renowned institution dedicated to wildlife conservation located in Devon, England. As part of our work with the zoo, we were entrusted with the task of installing a new monitoring system to their already present CCTV system, providing fire and security system servicing, and installing a brand new fire alarm system at the animal encounter building.

Fire safety is critically important at Paignton Zoo for a number of reasons. Firstly, the zoo is a popular tourist destination, attracting visitors from all over the world. With so many people in one place, it is essential that fire safety measures are in place to protect visitors, staff, and animals in the event of a fire. 

Additionally, Paignton Zoo plays an important role in the conservation and protection of wildlife. The loss of any animal due to a preventable fire would be a significant blow to the zoo's conservation efforts. Many of the animals at the zoo are rare or endangered, and losing even one animal could have a devastating impact on the species as a whole.

The zoo also has a successful breeding program and has been instrumental in the reintroduction of several species back into the wild. Losing any of these animals to a fire would be a significant loss not just for the zoo, but for the conservation efforts of the entire species. 

The exhibits at Paignton Zoo, such as the Monkey Heights, Giraffes, and Reptile exhibit, require specialized environments to ensure the health and well-being of the animals. A fire could easily destroy these exhibits and cause harm to the animals living there. In short, fire safety is essential at Paignton Zoo to protect visitors, staff, and animals from harm, as well as to preserve the important conservation and breeding efforts taking place at the zoo. 

The installation of a new monitoring system to the already present CCTV system at Paignton Zoo has allowed for a comprehensive approach to safety and security at the zoo. The new and improved CCTV featuring access to monitoring services allows the Zoo to be that much safer. Westcountry Fire Protection is proud to have played a role in ensuring the continued success and protection of the animals and the many visitors who see them every day. 

By implementing effective fire safety and CCTV measures, the zoo can ensure that it continues to provide a safe and secure environment for visitors and animals alike. We are very happy about this opportunity to make such an important place safer.
