“I Nearly Burnt The House Down!”

 

“I Nearly Burnt The House Down!”

By Kirsty Abrahams 29th March 2019

Patrick Hall, Company Owner & Director, Australian Fire Protection.

“After nearly burning my own house down when I was younger my dad told me to,
“never play with fire again,” Little did either of us know at that time that I would be following in his footsteps and pursue a career in the fire industry.”

 

Growing up in Brunei, Patrick would spend his spare time after school earning pocket money by assisting his dad at his fire protection business. Patrick would sand down, refill and paint hundreds of fire extinguishers for the company to provide to the oil rigs owned by the Shell Corporation.

After moving to the Gold Coast, Australia in 1986 Patrick was offered the first job he applied for which was at Australian Fire Protection. After many years of diligence and dedication, and the second sale of Australian Fire Protection, Patrick was offered the Company’s title.

 “Since taking ownership of Australian Fire Protection in 2007, we have seen rapid growth throughout the company,” Patrick explains.

Australian Fire Protection offer; in house training at their West Burleigh facility, offsite training with one of the company’s various trainers, other compliance solutions such as evacuation diagrams and fire audits, Evacuation Procedures Manuals, however the company’s most recent success is the implementation of their e-training platform.

Australian Fire Protection
pride themselves on their outstanding fire training and fire safety compliance solutions. In November 2018 Australian Fire Protection applied their first response fire training to Gold Coast marine specialists Lightwave Yachts entering them into Australian Fire Protection‘s Christmas campaign.

“Two weeks after the training session with Australian Fire Protection, we
had a real life fire episode.” Louise Overell, Lightwave Yachts.

 

Lightwave Yachts are an award winning luxury yacht manufacturer set in the heart of the Gold Coast. Choosing Australian Fire Protection’s first response fire training allowed the staff and directors to participate in a hands on, live fire experience equipping them for the unpredictable fire emergency the company experienced only two weeks after completing their first response and fire warden training.
 

“Our manufacturing facility deals with highly flammable materials so it
could have been a dire situation.  Our staff confidently dealt with the
fire and evacuation procedures and nominated staff members successfully put out
the fire using appropriate fire fighting methods covered in the First Response
Evacuation training.  We highly recommend Australian Fire Protection for
your Fire Safety training.”
