Our experienced trainers and consultants have a long history in Fire Service or fire related industries. Not only are we able to provide Fire & Emergency Training to suit your organisation but we also develop Approved Evacuation Schemes and Emergency Evacuation Procedures that meet the requirements of the Health & Safety in Employment Act and the Fire Services Act.

Our service includes the total management of six monthly Evacuation Drills. This is a requirement under the Act to keep Approved Evacuation Schemes active. Our consultants develop emergency scenarios used during drills to keep your wardens alert and active and to prepare them for any eventuality.

We offer the total Fire & Emergency package to new companies or others wishing to improve on current systems.

Recent disasters reinforce not only the need for organisations to be prepared but the home environment also. The training covers home and family fire safety and emergency preparation is embedded in all our fire training.
