Event Fire Cover

Providing Fire & Rescue response to festivals and events since 1992 Sharp Fire & Rescue Service are well renown in the industry and no strangers to the many dynamics that make a successful festival or event.

Our industry sectors include and are not limited to Music Festivals, Drive in Movies, Steam and Heritage Events, Re-enactments, Boat Racing, Motor Racing, VIP/Dignitary Events,  Equestrian Shows, Government and Monarchy.

Sharp Fire have recognition for providing Fire & Rescue cover to high life risk and complex risk events and our management team have represented the industry to the Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA).

We can tailor make a cover package to meet the individual needs of your event or festival, ensuring that the crews and appliances are present when the risks are at their greatest.

First Response Fire and Rescue Cover is available as a single service, but is generally supplied as part of an Event Fire Safety Package, combined with the Fire Risk Assessment, Fire Safety Training and Fire Extinguisher and Alarm Hire.

Cover can be arranged in either 12 or 24 hour periods, with standby being given during the day, evening or a combination of both.

During the Build, Event and Break Phases of your event, we can provide First Response Fire and Rescue Cover, with the aim to minimise the damage caused by a fire/fire related emergency incident, in the absence of, or until the arrival of, the Local Fire Service.
