It is with a heavy heart that the FPASA announces the passing of a legendary figurehead at the FPASA and FPA-UK, Mr. David Poxon.

David dedicated his life to the fire services, fire education, and training in South Africa when he served as the GM and then the MD for many years. 

His tenacity and passion lead to the development of a multitude of fire codes, as well as improved regulation within the fire industry. 

Though he has left the material plane, his contributions to society at large will never be forgotten.
