Having left to Force (to the delight of my superiors) I moved to South Africa where I spent many years as a senior officer in the Fire Services eventually leaving to open my own risk consultancy. That was fine but I missed the adrenaline rush, so I quit, to do a bit of Adventure work with a well known international adventure organisation. I then went into the Scuba Diving Industry and after quite a few years, finally got sick of teaching scuba diving and went back to Risk Consulting. I now have my own Risk Consulting business in Centurion which keeps me busy doing Risk Assessments and Analysis for Insurers and other enterprises as well as Insurance and Fire Investigations. I'm on Facebook and my website is at www.sarisk.org
