This year the FPASA embarked on an ambitious strategy to empower all Fire Departments nationally.

The FPASA trained over 225 firefighters (a minimum of 25 from each of the 9 provinces) in South Africa on Fire Risk Assessment and Prevention Strategies (FRAPS) free of charge.

The inspiration for the training derived from a dire need to educate all officials, especially from the less well financed municipalities, who needed the training most. The FPASA would like to thank all stakeholder members (Santam, Old Mutual, Hollard, AIG, MunichRe, Alexander Forbes, and SwissRe) of the FPASA for making this initiative possible. This training will improve the level of work performance of all firefighters trained nationally and in the long term reduce the incidence of fire through improved fire risk management.

  • Fire Engineering in South Africa 2020

    Though there is no tertiary qualification enabling the youth or experienced professionals in South Africa the opportunity to study this field via a typical 4-year degree program, the University of Stellenbosch's engineering department has launched an innovative and much-needed academic program, in an attempt to remedy this situation. Those studying in the field/s of civil or mechanical engineering, upon completion of their 4-year undergraduate degrees, may proceed to a Master's program specifically focussing on fire engineering in the South African context. Further, Dr. Richard Walls of the University of Stellenbosch has been involved in developing multiple short courses, which if attended, will greatly enhance the qualification/ competency of "fire engineers" in South Africa.
