Light Aviation Fire & Rescue was started in 1993 as an offshoot of DKA Film Services. Its main function was to provide specialist fire cover to the film & telelvision industry.
Today Light Aviation Fire & Rescue is an organisation which specialises in event fire cover at shows and charity events countrywide.
We have a comprehensive selection of firefighting vehicles and equipment available. We can supply varying ranges of fire cover from the single extinguisher to fully crewed appliances.
Our team has more than 120 years experience in the fire protection industry. Most of our staff are serving Firefighters and NHS Paramedics allowing us the flexibility to work within your needs.
From our Headquarters in Surrey, LAFire provides specialist vehicles, staff and equipment to events and productions right across the United Kingdom and Europe.
LAFire takes customers enviromental concerns very seriously and have implemented "Tread Lightly" - our Enviromental Policy to which all of our staff adhere to.
Our Enviromental Policy
"tread lightly" - our enviromental policy
We at LA Fire, have made a commitment to reduce our Carbon Dioxide Emmisions by up to 20% by 2022. We have also made changes right across our business ro reduce our overall impact on the enviroment. Our "5 Point Plan" champions throughout our business and what's more, we also work closely with our business partners to keep up to date with the latest enviromental and climate change thinking.
"the 5 point plan"
1 - Replace our Firefighting foam solutions, with the latest technology and more enviromentally friendly foams.
2 - Our new transport policy - to replace our appliances (where operationally possible), with more enviromentally friendly and lower emission units and to deploy smaller, more enviromentally friendly appliances whenever possible.
3 - Ensuring that our appliances, mechanical plant and equipment are as energy efficient as possible, adapting a "switch off" policy whenever possible.
4 - Reducing paper useage in our offices by switching to smart billing and booking systems. Mareketing our services via web and email based information systems. Where paper use in unavoidable, we will use recycled paper and recycle all paper used.
5 - Offsetting our Carbon Dioxide emmisions, our commitment is to reduce our carbon emmisions by up to 25% by 2020. We believe that offsetting can form a positive part of a much wider plan, but know that it is not the ultimate answer.
