We are New Zealand's leaders in end-to-end emergency management services.

We can provide individual services or fully integrated solutions, whether you need expert consultation in a specific area, compliance testing, staff/contractor training, or you're interested in contracting EMS to be your on-site emergency response team.

Risk Reduction

We are specialists in exposing risks posed by an operation, analysing them, and putting together services and systems to reduce these risks.


Does your business have the individual proficiencies and processes to handle an emergency? We can prepare you.


When an emergency occurs, we'll be there - protecting your people, property and productivity.


Efficient recovery is vital to minimising loss and ensuring production continuity.


When an emergency strikes, we’ll be there.

We protect your people, your assets and resources, your reputation. We ensure your business continuity with minimum loss.

There is simply no other commercial emergency response team in New Zealand with our level of front-line experience. We have a combined 70-odd years in responding to emergencies of all kinds, from fires and chemical spills to serious medical emergencies and significant security breaches. Read more about our background here.  

You can be sure that, as your dedicated on-site emergency response team, we are a crew trained to exceptionally high standards. We believe in ‘beyond best practise’ and have a minimum qualification standard for all our operational staff - in fire and chemical, security and pre-hospital emergency medical response.

Testament to our staff’s skill level is the fact that in 5 years of responding to emergency situations in Kinleith Mill, we have had no major injuries to staff, in fact not even one day off due to injury.

We are also NZQA-accredited training providers, offering both basic and highly specialised training to equip your staff or contractors for emergency response.
