Dave has just returned from Ballarat where he has been working with Aus Eco Solutions to upskill staff to achieve qualifications enabling them to undertake firefighting operations for their clients.
This training, combined with the staff’s current knowledge and skills will enable them to achieve a Certificate II in Public Safety Firefighter Operations.
Thank you to the staff and management at Aus Eco Solutions.

As a business manager, I could not have been happier with the training our team received from Fireground. The trainer found ways to challenge all our staff, no matter their experience level and used real-world examples to tie in key training points. I’m now confident that our team has a clear understanding of the safety, fire behaviour, teamwork and protocols required to function productively / safely on the fire ground.
The crew did a small controlled burn as part of their training, they displayed great teamwork and skill as shown in the photos below. One hectare biodiversity offset was safely and sucessfully burnt while protecting endangered spiny rice flowers.
