In 2009 Bob Ward, a retired fire fighter from the Royal Berkshire Fire & Rescue Service, was contacted by a gentleman who tragically lost two members of his family in the Newquay, Penhallow Hotel fire in August 2007. He was able to help the family understand the documentation and the questions they needed to ask at the inquest, and later assisted in the lead up to the Crown Court case which was deemed a travesty. In 2011 the hotel owners were only fined £80,000 and ordered to pay £62,000 costs for failing to meet fire safety standards.
After this tragedy, Bob pledged that he would find a way to ensure that those family members had not died in vain – he would find a way for people to ‘sleep safe’. It would be a further 4 years before circumstances allowed him to develop his idea and Sleep Safe Systems Limited was born from that pledge. In 2017 the Lumi-Plugin product was launched to fulfil his promise.
