It is a known fact that fire-related incidents claim numerous lives annually in South Africa. Therefore, it is imperative to have individuals with relevant skills in place to ensure that the right decisions are made during such emergencies. The South African law mandates that at least one out of every 50 individuals in an organization or company should possess basic fire fighting skills. This will guarantee that in the event of a fire, there will be someone capable of responding appropriately without causing panic or jeopardizing the safety of others.
Emergency Cares basic fire fighting training program was developed to provide employees with fundamental fire fighting skills and knowledge about fire prevention.
The Basic Fire Fighting course entails fire fighting techniques and how to apply them in a safe and correct manner. This course is aimed at preventing fires, and building confidence when faced with this unexpected emergency.
