“I can highly recommended PRM to provide many services related to Emergency Preparedness services through to High Risk Training as well as Contract FSO duties. Their team are highly respected across our four hospital sites by over 1000 staff as PRM’s staff are passionate, knowledgeable and skilled in many areas and as a result have allowed our facilities to not just meet the various base standards but has allowed us to operate at a much higher level. We moved much of our critical Fire Training, Annual Fire Safety Statements, High Risk Training (Heights, Confined Space and Permits) as well as provide us Fire Safety Officer duties from various other companies all to PRM purely due to the high standard that PRM provides with all their services
