    Polar, one thing that I was surprised to find is that G4S provides firefighting services in certain parts of the world. I remember the first picture I saw of a G4S fire engine, thought it was a shop until I did some searching.

    Over here I can at least name one dockyard where G4S is in charge of both security and firefighting. Securitas also has firefighting around here, most notably in the nuclear powerplants around here. Tried looking up one photo I've seen of a fire engine with a big Securitas logo but couldn't find it.
