Basic Fire Fighting Course
This Basic Fire Fighting Course consists in providing the employee with an initial training that enables him to extinguish a fire outbreak, in an efficient and safe way, and to be able to eliminate or minimise hazards. All types of fire fighting equipment will be explained, as well as extinction methods according to the fuel type that originated the fire, and the right actions to follow in the event of a fire outbreak. The drills and practicing will take place at a Fire Field, in which each student will perform fire fighting exercises through portable fire extinguishers (PQS, CO2, Hydric & Foam), with BIE. The student will be familiarised with the use portable firehoses with hydrant connection. These drills will be performed in 4 different modules, by extinguishing a real live fire by cooling, suffocation and inhibition. All trainees will be shown ways to put out a fire outbreak in their respective workplaces without using fire fighting equipment.
It’s a remarkable feature that our Fire Field sets up various scenarios in which we can reproduce all types of real fire situations that can occur in any given enclosure or space, such as: offices, laboratories, vessels, industrial platforms, etc; which can be adapted in order to fulfil the needs of each customer.
At ProNautic we have pioneered the design of a Fire Field in which water is recirculated and therefore, all water used is not completely wasted. We wish to put an emphasis in the fact that all modules have been thought to be completely safe for our students and personnel. Last but not least, the technical training is guaranteed by our professional instructors‘ backgrounds, that range from Fire-Fighters, to Engineers, Masters & Merchant Navy Officers, Doctors & Nurses).
