About Us
About Us
DVAA was established in 1994 in Pretoria as a sister company of K de Vries Ambulances that operated a large network of emergency medical services throughout Southern Africa and Europe.

The CEO of the company, Mr K de Vries saw that providing emergency medical care and assisting in the care of the sick and injured is based on much more than just that.

The public needs to be educated to prevent injury and illness and to act immediately when disaster strikes: hence DVAA

So at the dawn of democracy DVAA was born. At first only a few students were trained, solely as ambulance personnel, but the need for more lay person friendly courses grew.

Today DVAA delivers confident ambulance personnel, steadfast first aiders and empowered, inspired people who go back to their communities to bring forth not only first line treatment but also prevention of accidents and illness by educating their fellow man, however basic the knowledge may be.
