What is firmus care?
At firmus energy, we understand that no two customers are the same and it is important to have a range of services to meet their differing needs.
To help make life as easy as possible for our customers, we have set up the firmus care scheme to look after customers who have specific requirements. firmuscare offers a range of services designed to help:
- Older customers (aged 60+)
- Customers who have a registered disability (including those who have hearing or sight impairments).
- Chronically ill customers.
When someone you do not know comes to your door always ask them to identify themselves. All firmus energy representatives carry a company identity card, with photographic ID and a telephone number. We also offer the added reassurance of a pre-agreed password to be used when any of our staff visit your home. Contact our customer care team to agree your password.
