Background

Why Do Your Firefighters NEED Live Fire Training?

The number of structure fires are on the decline however the risk to firefighters has risen. This is due to modern construction techniques and the amount of stored energy in the contents of every room due to new petroleum based furniture as compared to legacy construction and furniture. Less fires results in less chances to practice and learn on the scene. Firefighters are facing dangerous fire behaviour that requires a change in tactics and a better understanding of fire behaviour especially Flashover.
