Fighting fires in super-structures such as high-valued residences, high rise and multi-storey office blocks, hotels, super malls and ‘big box’ warehouses requires a very specific skill-set and incident command on a sophisticated level.

FIRE OPS SA as we are commonly known, offers this sophistication and expertise like no other in the market, incomparable to any current available fire service.

It was a known fact that industrialists and land owners of the city were left without the level of fire protection which citizens and insurers had previously depended on – there was a dire need in the Greater Johannesburg region and neighbouring footprint for a privately owned, first response firefighting service.

Contracted by our clients, FIRE OPS SA provides a fully established and highly skilled team of Firefighters and Officers, with our unique approach to fighting fires and world-class technology, FIRE OPS SA is able to fill the gap professionally.

This created an expanse in the market for a viable solution. So, with his colourful and highly skilled background attained over the years as part of the fire department, that is exactly what led our current Fire Chief, Wynand Engelbrecht to establish FIRE OPERATIONS SA (PTY) LTD.

Our Fire Chief, a seasoned Fire Officer who developed a leading reputation in the industry, known to all – with his last municipal posting that of Task Force Commander: Sandton Fire Department (before the Metro was established), it was clear he had the knowledge to develop \what Johannesburg needed again.

FIRE OPS SA has become the only alternative to the exceptionally limited fire service available to citizens, businesses and insurers.  The company is headed by De Wet Engelbrecht, a young and energetic CEO with an extensive background in fire and suppression systems.

We are supported by a 60+ strong crew of Officers, Firefighters and Recruits – proudly, our Officers are entrenched in the history of the former fire department with 25 – 35 years of experience.
