FSD attended the Fire Industry Association’s trade mission to South Africa, which was held in Johannesburg on the 09th of October and in Cape Town on the 11th of October 2018.
The UK Fire Protection and Fire and Rescue industries are recognised across the globe for their quality products and engineering expertise. FIA Exporters are part of the Fire Industry Association and comprise a range of organisations within the UK fire safety sector. Some are smaller companies wishing to enter overseas markets for the first time or to expand their export interests, others are larger world-leading companies that acknowledge the benefits of working together within the FIA to promote UK products, services and standards.
A highlight of the event was the keynote from Colin Deiner, Chief Director of the Western Cape Disaster Management and Fire/Rescue Services who gave insights about current and future plans regarding fire prevention and management in the Western Cape.
FSD attended the event in partnership with Hochiki Europe (UK) Ltd, as the official distributor of FIREscape Emergency Lighting System in Africa.
