» Ensure operational capability
» Ensure effective application
» Be of the highest quality
» Be the latest innovation on the market
» Offer the longest warranty on the market
» Have a proven track record
» Be designed exclusively for fire and rescue application

The product supply company must:

» Understand fire suppression and mitigation
» Offer world-class after-sales service
» Offer on-site servicing through a mobile service capability
» Offer ongoing service contracts
» Be capable of executing product warranties
» Be financially sound

The product supply company must also offer:
A training academy to train personnel in the operation and application of the apparatus.
1. Accredited and certifiable training.
2. Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality training for on-going training.
3. Simulation training for the apparatus, as well as client-specific risks.
