The Central PPE & Clothing Contract (CPCC) is a national procurement framework through which fire and rescue services in England and Wales can procure national identity clothing for employees throughout their organisations. MSA Bristol was awarded the original contract to supply a wide range of PPE and non-PPE clothing in 2008. This was refreshed in 2015 to include the very latest state-of-the-art structural PPE designs, as well as a comprehensive range of helmets, fire hoods, gloves and boots.
On joining the programme, fire and rescue services can relax in the knowledge that all clothing and equipment purchased through the scheme has been rigorously assembled, trialled and tested, and independently scrutinized and approved by the Crown Commercial Services. This precludes the need for tendering costs and local product performance testing, helping to save time and money, without compromising on quality.
The CPCC scheme meets the needs of over 6,500 firefighters as well as many non-frontline staff. It offers an extensive range of clothing and equipment in 28 male and female sizes, ranging from firefighter protective clothing and station wear to corporate wear, undress clothing and sports clothing.
The latest structural and technical rescue PPE ranges are based on MSA Bristol’s ergonomic XFlex and RescueFlex designs, using top of the range Hainsworth outer fabrics with Gore CROSSTECH moisture barriers. Bristol CPCC wildland garments are single layer garments manufactured from Eco-Dry shield.
Membership of the CPCC also provides access to a variety of service options, offering maximum flexibility to suit the needs and preferences of any fire and rescue service. These include a fully managed services option, a lease option with planned maintenance, a PPE purchase option with flexible managed services provision, and a basic purchase option.
With its two in-house Service Centres located in Bristol and Greater London, MSA Bristol is well placed to offer comprehensive maintenance services to its clients across the UK. Soiled or damaged garments are collected from fire and rescue services around the country, transported to one of the service centres for thorough cleaning, inspection and repair, before being returned to the customer within a guaranteed seven days.
The CPCC is free and straightforward to join, and easy to manage. It also benefits from an online management process, offering information and data on kit and stock, which is accessible remotely, around the clock.
