Serco Middle East has announced a contract expansion of Logistics & Base Support Services

Serco Middle East has announced a key contract expansion of the Middle East Logistics and Base Support Services, for the Australian Defence Force (ADF), to operate crucial Rescue and Firefighting Services (RFFS) at the ADF logistics base in the UAE.

The new service line commences in December 2020 for an initial 13-month period in support of the ADF Joint Task Force and coalition partners located at the Al Minhad Air Base, a statement said.

Serco will be responsible for all the emergency response capability, including airfield rescue and firefighting services, structural rescue and firefighting, road accident and personnel rescue, and hazardous materials incident response. The operation and provision of these services will be on a continuous 24-hour basis with a response capability of handling multiple incidents simultaneously, it added.

The new RFFS adds to Serco’s long term-partnership with Australian Defence Force and current presence at their Middle East logistics base, where Serco already provides 21 different service lines across base operations, hospitality and support services.

Commenting on Serco’s success, Phil Malem, Chief Executive Officer, Serco Middle East, said: “We are delighted to be expanding our contract with Australian Defence Force in the Middle East, who we have been supporting in the Middle East for nine years. We have clearly demonstrated the enhanced operational effectiveness and cost efficiencies and flexibility that will be achieved by ADF in outsourcing these critical services to Serco.”

Commander Corrine Court from the Australian Defence Force said: “The safety of ADF personnel is unquestionably our top priority in all our operations and having a robust and reliable Rescue and Firefighting (RFFS) services is critical to the operations at our logistics base in the Middle East.
