When faced with extraordinary situations, anything can happen. With proper firefighting training and education, you will be able to make the right decisions in these emergency situations. Approximately 600 people die and over 4 000 are injured annually in South Africa as a result of fires, and these blazes cause more than R500 million in damages to properties every year. Action Training Academy’s firefighting training courses are aimed at teaching basic firefighting skills to minimise loss of life and property, by extinguishing fires in their early stages. The best method of stopping a fire is to prevent it. The actions taken to control a fire during the first few minutes will determine whether it can be contained or not. Minimise damage during fires by contacting us for expert firefighting training. Legislation requires that one in 50 people per company, or two people per building, be trained in basic firefighting.
