*Fire Protection Association Australia (FPA Australia) is the national peak body for fire safety that provides information, services and education to the fire protection industry and the community.
“Recognised Business status is awarded to businesses that are investing in the skills, knowledge and experience of those fire protection professionals engaged in the business, thereby supporting them in achieving individual accreditation. Businesses recognised by the scheme only engage appropriately accredited individuals (fire protection professionals) to provide services in the categories for which the business provides services.”
