Firefighting Foam School 2018
Created on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 and posted in Industry News
Following 2017’s hugely successful programme Angus Fire and CFB Risk Management will be hosting another Emergency Planning and Firefighting Foam School in 2018. The school will take place 4-8 June at the Centro Jovellanos in Asturias in Northern Spain.
Who should attend?
- Refinery, petrochemical plant fire chiefs and brigade members
- Municipal fire officers
- Company safety and fire personnel responsible for flammable liquid fire fighting
- Tank farm fire personnel
- Insurance company personnel involved with protecting storage and process
- Fire engineers
The course will be run with CFB Risk Management, who will provide a UK Fire & Rescue Officer to manage the Emergency Planning training as well as the Fire Ground Control & Command.
Angus Fire and CFB Risk Management will cover foam firefighting and emergency planning as the two main objectives of the course, which will be a blend of theory and practice and heavily focussed on the overall implications of tank fire fighting. This will include an in-depth understanding of the risk and its manifestation, the importance of foam selection, designing and specifying foam fire systems, including tank systems.
The practical training will include real fires with real fuels, across a number of training modules. Some of the training will involve BA work and a qualification or training in BA would be essential. The BA aspect is optional and is therefore not required to participate. At the end of the school the delegates will have improved their firefighting technique, increased their understanding of the capabilities of the foam and foam equipment and gained greater confidence in fighting flammable liquid fires.
Location & Facilities
The course will be held at the fire training school at Centro Jovellanos in Asturias, Spain. The school will provide full logistical support for the course, including fuel, fire test modules, some of the site labour, the PPE and the BA. Delegates will also be heavily involved in test ground training and work, for which they may bring their own fire boots and helmet if preferred.
