Technology Solutions Company Fireminds Ltd. is open for business today, despite their headquarters being in proximity to the blaze on Front Street. The fire, began in the early hours of this morning, between Innovation House on Reid Street and the Freisenbruch Meyer offices on Front Street. The Bermuda fire department has worked hard to extinguish the flames.
Of the current situation, a spokesman has remarked, “We implemented our Disaster Recovery Plan at 5:30am, to physically ensure the safety of our staff, as well as the safety of our data and client projects. Luckily Innovation House has not been harmed in the fire, but due to safety reasons, we have elected to work from our data centre at Ideation House. Fireminds has been assisting the fire department through providing access to Innovation House, so that fire teams and hoses could get to the backside of the fire.”
Fireminds CEO Michael Branco commented, “We would like to ensure our clientele that their systems have not been affected. Thankfully due to the hard work of the Bermuda Fire & Rescue team the fire was unable to spread to Innovation House. We are thankful that no lives were lost and are assisting business who were impacted by the fire.”
