Our  Team


We don't just ' do ' safety, we believe in practical - sensible approaches to getting the job done safely.

All of our staff are trained in all of the competencies we deliver.

All of our trainers are ERT, ESO, Paramedic's or
Fire & Rescue Service.

We are focussed on keeping it simple, keeping it safe.

Proudly stocking some of the newest, most technically advanced inventories of both training and operational equipment available.

We understand there are constant advances in safety and practicality - and we are constantly talking to manufacturers to make sure we're playing with the most up to date gear available.

" I can honestly say that I have never gone into any business purely to make money. If that is the sole motive then I believe you are better off not doing it. A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts."

Our Training Centre


Our training centre is a dedicated facility that includes dedicated airconditioned / heated classroom with comfortable seating, new desks and has a bright and lively feel to it.
We picked everything we hated about classrooms and made sure we didnt make the same mistakes.
