Ely Office & Depot
As of 17.00 on Monday 21st November 2016 all services have been restored at Ely office and depot. They are now fully open.
The building at Rivers House Blandford has been struck by lightning which has knocked the fire alarm system off line. The Blanford office remains open but at present the automated fire alarms aren't working. The 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.
Please refer to local communication coming out from the Recovery Group and ensure you comply with all emergency procedures that have been put in place.
EA Business Continuity - Horizon House Bristol is now open following a false fire alarm on 1/12/16.
