Industrial Fire Team Training

At times, Fire Extinguishers are simply not enough and dedicated control measures are required to protect your assets and personnel. This is where Emergency Management Services can assist with Fire Team Training. Whether it is an industrial site or a remote mining community, the ability to quickly respond to and suppress fire emergencies will minimise the risk and cost of an incident.  EMS Instructors bring with them extensive operational fire fighting experience as full-time Senior Fire Fighters.This unique job based experience and technical expertise can only be gained after many years of providing first hand operational response to a wide range of firefighting disciplines, from structural fire fighting to bush fire response.
