Fire Fighting

Knowing how to deal with a fire could save our life, the lives of fellow employees, public and property. Driving Sense firefighting training courses are aimed at teaching firefighting skills in order to minimize loss of life and property, by extinguishing fires in their early stages.

During our working career we may be required to deal with a fire. This may only happen once or twice in our working careers, but it is important that we know how to use a fire extinguisher and other relevant firefighting equipment
