Financial services company Discovery and Advanced Emergency Management Services have launched a private firefighting service in South Africa.
The group said the service will be a value-added benefit primarily to Discovery Insure clients whose vehicle, home or business may be impacted by fire. The service will be available to clients across the majority of the Johannesburg metropolitan area, it said.
“Immediate assistance makes all the difference when that accident that you never thought you’d have, actually happens. The new Fire Force offering is a true manifestation of Discovery’s core purpose of enhancing and protecting lives by keeping our clients and communities safe,” says Anton Ossip, chief executive of Discovery Insure.
“We are proud to partner with the Advanced EMS team to support individuals and small businesses with a rapid response firefighting service that can help to curtail damages, injury and save lives, especially in a city such as Johannesburg where fires are a real concern.”
