Basic Fire Fighter

F2 Fire Fighting Course

Firefighting (F2) is a step up from our Basic Fire Awareness course and entails revisions of all knowledge gained in the F1 Course, as well as additional firefighting techniques and how to apply them in a safe and correct manner. Increasing one’s knowledge and skills in the handling of fire is only going to mean better handling of an emergency situation. Although firefighting tips can always be picked up from common sense and a few general instructions, too many lives are lost and too much property is damaged every year in South Africa to simply rely on instinct. At Action Training, we offer comprehensive fire awareness training for emergency situations. After completing this level, please note you can start making arrangements for the (F3) Advanced Fire Fighter Training Course.
