First Responders Teams Course
The First Responders Team must be instructed through a minimum training in identifying fire-risk situations and emergencies, first intervention before fire outbreaks, succesful occupants evacuation & first aid basics.
This training is aimed for members of a First Responders team, and is purely an establishment, activity, infrastructure or building’s manager responsibility to provide it to his/her workers.
The student will be taught about Fire Theory, Types of Fire Classes, & Fire Fighting Equipment according with the fuel that originated the fire, as well as means of responding to emergency plans.
All drills and exercises will take place at a Fire Field, in which every student will be able to put out real live fires originated from solid, liquid or gaseous fuels, attacking fire outbreaks in closed-in spaces and outdoors situations using a specially equipped fire hydrant, fire extinguishers & portable fire-hoses. The student will be taught consolidation of techniques to evacuate a smoke-filled specialised module. We will witness the neutral plan phenomena inside the adapted module. We will also show means to put out a fire outbreak without using any fire fighting equipment. Finally, we will demonstrate how to properly wear the autonomous breathing device & other protective equipment.
The equipment and modules used in drill exercises will be the following:
- Individual Protection Equipment
- Portable Fire Extinguishers (PQS, CO2, Hydric & Foam)
- Equipped Fire Hydrants.
- Portable fire-hoses.
- Autonomous Breathing Equipment.
- Construction Containers.
- Trays & fuel drums.
- Smoke simulated evacuation module.
- Neutral Plan Module.
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).
