Fire and Emergency Response

Do you meet your compliance obligations? Would your staff, your equipment and your procedures perform in the event of an emergency?

Trainers have first-hand operational front line emergency management experience and expertise, managing real world emergencies on a day to day basis.

The Fire and Emergency Response training is designed for persons who may be required to operate First Attack Fire Fighting equipment to suppress fires in the workplace and coordinate and control response procedures and evacuations in the event of emergencies. Training includes practical use of fire fighting equipment.

Australian Standard AS3745 states that emergency training should be conducted at intervals not exceeding six months.
