2020 was a big year for Coopers Fire. We relocated our headquarters to a purpose built, state-of-the-art new facility in Waterlooville, and reimagined our website for the next phase of our growth. We even managed to complete work on some exciting fire curtain installation projects.

But 2020 will forever be remembered as the year of COVID-19 – the disease that spread around the world and brought life as we know it to a complete standstill. As we think of those lost to this terrible virus, it’s almost impossible to remember the bushfires that ravaged Australia in early 2020, or anything other than the progress of the fight against COVID-19. Still, fire was once again a big feature of the year gone by – and the pandemic had some unexpected effects on fire.
