During this health emergency all our thoughts are with the families who are affected or have suffered because of COVID-19. Also to our amazing health workers who are working tirelessly to support those families and protect the health of us all. This article is intended to focus on supporting small business owners but we should not lose sight of those helping care, support and fight to keep the country safe and moving forward.
All future news and blog posts about Stirling Electrical Services and Stirling Alarms will now be on their new blog available on the Stirling Electrical Services website
Fallin-based electrical contractor Stirling Electrical Services Ltd. celebrated the official launch of our new Electric Vehicle (EV) Charge Point Installation service on Monday 17th February.
Stirling Electrical Services were pleased to offer our services in the installation of the new defibrillator at Cambusbarron Community Centre.
We hope it does not have to be used but it's good to know it is there if required for all in Cambusbarron Village.
Stirling Electrical Services recently installed a new audio visual system at The National Wallace Monument.
Situated in 'Keepers Lodge' on the ground floor of the monument the new video will give an insight into the famous local landmark.

A busy day for our Saturday electricians.
Emergency fault finding (and repair) a socket circuit fault over three floors of a local hotel.
While also completing our planned Saturday job of upgrading old fuse boxes to two new RCBO consumer units at a Stirling business.
Oh and also a security alarm call outs and repairs.
Well done to our team.
Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark
Did you know that a staggering 64% of British adults admit that they are still scared of the dark.
36% regularly get the feeling someone or something is in the room with them.
And 1 in 5 regularly check under the bed for lurking monsters and close cupboard and wardrobe doors before they get into bed.
Those were some of the findings from a 2017 poll conducted by a UK bed company.
And with the clocks now turned back and Hallowe'en upon us, travelling to and from work in the dark will soon be a reality.
But even with 17 hours of darkness each day in the depths of the Scottish winter is there any reason to still 'Be Afraid Of the Dark'?
Let's look at some suggestions to help cope with the dark nights.
What Can You Do?
To help protect You, your Family and your Property during the long dark winter
It’s been a double Apprentice celebration week for us at Stirling Electrical Services.
Apprentices have always been at the forefront of our business development and while we do not employ apprentices every year we will always have at least one ongoing apprentice.
This week I received the fantastic news that our 4th year apprentice Craig had passed his electrical trade exam and then at the other end of the spectrum we welcomed our new apprentice Shaun to our team.
After four hard working years and a two day trade exam I was pleased with Craig’s success and equally delighted to offer him an electrician position as we look forward to many more successful years together.

An article in our electrical trade magazine highlighted a new report that's estimates that up to 15,000 extra skilled electricians will be required in the UK over the next 5 years.
New technologies around smart homes, electric vehicles and Wi-Fi were amongst the main new services stated for increasing demand for skilled installers but it was the section on apprenticeships that caught my eye.
It was pleasing to read that an electrical apprenticeship is still a highly rated initial career move and that it was still evident for employers to receive a return on investment to employ apprentices.
Being involved in the construction / services industry I like from time to time to highlight some useful websites, tools and advice that can help with your latest home improvement project.
