Fire-SA takes the fire industry to the web

March/April 2000 Fire & Safety

Fire-SA has launched a new online fire protection resource website, www.fire-sa.co.za, which is intended to list all the fire protection companies, associations and institutions in South Africa. This site will be a useful reference for fire professionals, architects, engineers, buyers and the general public to find fire services both nationally and regionally.

Says Fire-SA's Tony Botha, "The website will also provide information, news, events and new products relating to the fire industry. The website will function as a search engine for fire resources but will also be informative in content to promote the fire industry."

Adds Botha, "The fire industry is extremely diverse - from the servicing of portable fire extinguishers, to installation of computer-based laser fire detection systems, to supply of fire extinguishing agents, to manufacture of fire engines, to installation of sprinkler and deluge water systems. There are institutes, associations and interest groups who individually look after certain aspects of the fire industry, as well as fire reinsurers and fire consultants deal in a risk management environment."

"The introduction of the Fire-SA website merges all of these sectors into one information base, with all companies operating in the fire industry listed by category and region," says Botha.

"Traditional search engines concentrate on category listings or search keywords to find information. As the fire industry is not regarded as a major industry sector it is usually slotted under generic categories such as Safety or Security. Our site offers information for a specific industry ONLY. You want a job in the fire industry or you are a company looking for personnel with knowledge in the industry, you can come to our site Fire-SA," he says.

"All leading fire companies need to be listed because this is where future fire industry requirements will be sourced," he concludes.
