Wildland Fire
Suppression Courses

Effective fire management is becoming ever more dangerous and complicated. It is primarily due to climate change, the expansion of the rural/urban interface and the buildup of flammable vegetation. Organisations need to engage in an innovative three-part strategy: ecosystem restoration, community preparedness and fire response to meet the challenge. Our training solutions align with this strategy, and therefore, vastly increase resource efficiency and effectiveness during operations.
