Chubb Fire & Security is delighted to be providing the fire and security solutions for the latest Ronald McDonald House, part of a worldwide charity supporting over five million people with home-from-home accommodation for the families of sick children resident in hospital. The house, which opens on 2 December, is run by Ronald McDonald Kinderfonds België and provides comfortable family accommodation close to local Brussels hospitals.

Chubb installed a complete fire detection and security system that includes surveillance cameras and access control for the building to ensure the security and safety of families staying there. To enable ongoing security, Chubb will also carry out essential maintenance and servicing. Chubb is part of Carrier, a global provider of innovative heating, ventilating, air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
“We are providing an essential environment for families with ill children, and an important aspect of this is providing a safe haven free of external distractions. We are thrilled to be working with Chubb Fire & Security, whose Belgium-based engineers worked tirelessly to provide a practical, integrated security solution,” said Katia De Greve, house manager at Ronald McDonald House Brussels.
Enhanced fire safety
“We have always admired the services provided by Ronald McDonald House Charities and their employees, providing vital relief from the day-to-day challenges of caring for ill children. Chubb has provided fire safety and security solutions to ensure the families feel safe and secure during these difficult times, and Chubb is proud to be part of this exciting project,” said Gino Ghilardi, acting Managing Director at Chubb Fire & Security Belgium.
Ronald McDonald House Charities provides places where families dealing with the impact of children with a range of illnesses, can interact and stay close in secure surroundings. Parents and children are able to rest, eat and talk without interruption. In 2016, it served more than five million people worldwide and is continuing to expand its offering with the introduction of mobile hospitals in more remote locations.
