Following the thunderstorms on Thursday 15th September there are various on going issues with the site at Rivers House Blandford, including power outages, network disruption and the fire alarm system being off line.
The building at Rivers House Blandford has been struck by lightning which has knocked the fire alarm system off line.
The Blandford office remains open but at present the automated fire alarms aren’t working. This fault is likely to be in place for the next 2 months.
Rivers House remains open for business but we are relying on staff to be extra vigilant during this time.
