FIRE PREVENTION EDUCATION

Mobilize your community education and prevention program with a BullEx Fire Safety Trailer. Train adults to extinguish simulated kitchen fires that are intense and true to life, yet completely safe. Teach children what they should do in case of fire in their home, if they see smoke or feel a warm door. Instruct community members how to respond to various emergencies they might encounter in the home or workplace, from gas leaks to fire. The available severe weather package utilizes sound, strobe effects and alerts to train your entire community to react in an emergency weather situation. People of every age will benefit from the lifesaving lessons learned in the realistic settings of our Fire Safety Trailers.

KITCHEN FIRE SCENARIO

Designed to resemble a real home kitchen, this setting uses heat, smoke, sound effects and digital flames to create an intense fire emergency. Challenge trainees of any age to respond correctly in this hands-on emergency response and hazard recognition training scenario.

Choose a combination of stove, oven and cabinet props and instruct trainees to use the proper P.A.S.S. technique to knock down the flames. The sparking microwave, smoking toaster, and smoking outlet show the hazards of improper use or placement of appliances and how to diminish a potential hazard. A chemical cabinet demonstrates how to properly store chemicals and prevent children from accessing dangerous materials. Overhead heaters, dense smoke, digital flames and sound effects combine to recreate the stress of an actual fire.

BEDROOM SCENARIO

Educate children and parents on the importance of E.D.I.T.H. (Exit Drills In The Home) and prepare them to conduct drills at home with the bedroom scenario. Show trainees how to feel a door for heat and block smoke with a pillow or towel and then evacuate to safety using the window and escape ladder. Additional props include a smoking outlet and air conditioner to simulate electrical fire hazards. Sound, smoke, fire effects, an interactive 9-1-1 phone, and an automatic smoke detector create an authentic emergency scene.

INDUSTRIAL EMERGENCY SCENARIO

Train employees how to respond to a fire or HazMat leak in the workplace in this industrial fire scenario. An electrical box shorts, causing sparks to ignite the adjacent parts washer. The parts washer creates a hot, smoky fire which then ignites the nearby trashcan resulting in a full scale industrial emergency.

The industrial scenario can be as simple or complex as you need.  It can include numerous industrial elements that may become hazardous to a worker, such as a leaking gas manifold or chemical drum, overflowing chemical test tubes, or a gas fume hood that has caught fire.

SEVERE WEATHER PACKAGE

Life-threatening weather emergencies can occur with little or no notice. The optional Severe Weather Package, an add-on to the Kitchen Fire Scenario, broadcasts realistic severe weather alerts and teaches trainees how to react if faced with an extreme weather event. Weather simulations incorporate actual news broadcasts with surround-sound effects for hurricane, earthquake, flood, and tornado safety education. The BullEx Severe Weather Package teaches critical life-saving steps in a highly realistic training environment.

  • NOAA Weather Radio warns of severe weather
  • Integrated television broadcasts emergency weather news report
  • Digital amplification creates realistic weather sound effects
  • Strobe effects simulate lightning and intermittent power outages

The Severe Weather Package allows for breaks in the action so the instructor can discuss the emergency procedures specific to their location. The intensity level can be adjusted to provide an experience appropriate to the age level of the participants.

HOW IT WORKS

THE PROGRESSION OF A KITCHEN EMERGENCY

  1. Oven fire ignites
  2. Smoke issues from oven & microwave
  3. Fire spreads to stovetop
  4. Overhead heaters intensify
  5. Trashcan ignites
  6. Smoke detector alarms

Trainees must first call 9-1-1, then knock down the fire with a laser training extinguisher and turn off the oven and stove to prevent re-ignition. If the trainee doesn’t get the fire out, the heat and smoke force evacuation.

THE PROGRESSION OF A BEDROOM EMERGENCY

  1. Door heats up
  2. Smoke appears under door from the adjoining room
  3. Optional Air Conditioner sparks
  4. Smoke detector alarms
  5. Escape through E.D.I.T.H. window

Children learn the basics of fire safety in a realistic, but safe environment.  The trainer demonstrates an emergency scenario designed for children. They feel the door for fire outside their bedroom, block smoke from entering under the door with a towel or pillow, call 9-1-1 and if necessary, use the E.D.I.T.H. window to escape the danger.  Trainers can walk the children through the scene to make them more comfortable about what to do if a similar situation occurs in their own home.

THE PROGRESSION OF AN INDUSTRIAL EMERGENCY

  1. Electrical panel arcs
  2. Parts washer ignites
  3. Heat and smoke intensify
  4. Trashcan fire ignites
  5. Paint locker catches fire

Trainees must pull the fire alarm, shut down the power and use a training extinguisher properly to prevent a fire from spreading throughout the scenario. Hazard Recognition Props include HazMat placards, gas leak prop, lock-out/tag-out station and a smoking outlet.

Wrightstown Township Ted Middleman, Fire Marshal/Emergency Coordinator

Since purchasing the BullEx Fire Safety Trailer, our training has changed completely and absolutely for the better. Prior to obtaining the trailer, our training was outdated. We conducted extinguisher training with real extinguishers. When we visited schools, we showed them a video on fire danger and prevention. We were never able to give school children any hands-on training, other than teaching stop, drop, and roll.

We knew we had to change what we were doing because we thought our fire prevention efforts were getting stale. We looked at lots of different fire prevention training products and trailers, but nothing compared to the level of realism featured in the BullEx Trailer. The hands-on, real-life experience that the kitchen and bedroom emergency scenarios give visitors is what really influenced our decision. Additionally, the severe weather package has turned out to be a huge asset to our program. It has really changed the way we educate the public. The trailer is the biggest attraction wherever we go.

We have found set up and operation of the trailer to be very easy. Our Product Training Specialist delivered the trailer to us and went through exactly how to operate it. He was even available on a Sunday to help us resolve an issue. Our Account Representative was great during our entire purchase experience. He has even attended two of our open houses at the Department where we were offering trailer tours. Our experience with everyone at BullEx has been nothing but positive.

Currently, we take the trailer to schools, health fairs, and senior citizen expos. We’ve been able to tailor our trailer to our audience by replacing the bed with a reclining chair, oxygen tank, and ash tray when we talk to senior citizens. We educate them about the dangers of smoking in the home, especially when oxygen is present. We tell them that if they don’t feel they’re well enough to extinguish the fire, to get out of the house immediately and call 9-1-1. It’s also important for us to educate adults about replacing extinguishers.

The reaction we have gotten from the local schools has been very positive. Previously, when we were showing fire prevention and education videos, some of the children were scared by seeing damaged and destroyed homes in the video. Because of this, some of the parents asked to see the trailer before their children did. Once they see the Fire Safety Trailer, they understand how educational it is. We have even been able to use the trailer to help teach math and science by helping students calculate how much food and water they would need for their family after a storm, as well as how long their batteries, gas and generator would last.

I have worked in the fire service for 25 years, and in that time I have never seen such a realistic and educational tool for fire prevention and public education. It has completely transformed our training. The fact that the people in our community can practice feeling a hot door, planning escape routes, and learning how to extinguish a fire is great. We could not have had a better experience with the Fire Safety Trailer.

Roanoke Fire-EMS Tiffany Bradbury, Fire Prevention Specialist

Roanoke Fire-EMS is committed to the safety of the citizens and visitors to the City of Roanoke. We had a fire safety public education program in place but it was missing something. We did not have the tool to teach people how to exit their homes safely in the event of a fire. In September of 2010 all of that changed when Roanoke Fire-EMS took delivery of the BullEx Fire Safety Trailer.

Our Department did a lot of research before the purchase of a fire safety trailer. BullEx was the winner hands down among their competitors. The customer service we have received from BullEx has been exceptional! When we “debuted” our trailer for our community during Fire Prevention Week, BullEx sent a representative to our event to make sure that everything was running smoothly. Many companies do not exhibit this type of exemplary service any more. I was truly impressed.

The Fire Safety Trailer has proven to be a key component of our public education programs. We visit schools and local events with our traveling safety house! Everyone that visits the trailer is amazed how realistic the fire and smoke simulations are. Adults love the fire extinguisher training in the kitchen and the children are learning so much about what to do if they woke up to their smoke detector sounding. I know that countless lives may be saved because of the use of this trailer.

Our Department has also utilized the severe weather package on the trailer. This is truly an amazing component. With changing weather in Southwest Virginia, we are able to show our community how to stay safe should a tornado or severe storm happen in our community.

We have had several other departments in neighboring communities come by to see our trailer. They too have been very impressed. We are truly grateful to BullEx for all of your assistance with our trailer and for making such a fine, quality product.

Cardinal Joint Fire District Don Hutchison, Deputy Chief

The Cardinal Joint Fire District in Canfield, Ohio had a specific goal in mind when they applied for a Fire Prevention and Safety Grant in 2009. They wanted to educate as many members of their community as possible about what to do in the event of a fire. Three months after they accepted delivery of their BullEx Fire Safety Trailer, purchased with the funds awarded from that grant, they have taught their fire prevention program to more than 1100 residents, students and local businesses.

The incorporated district includes three fire departments; Cardinal Joint Fire Department, Green Township Fire Department and Austintown Township Fire Department. Each department is responsible for providing fire protection to approximately 25 square miles and 20,000 residents, for a total of 75 square miles and 60,000 community members. Knowing that larger population numbers would be advantageous in their grant application, CJFD teamed up with Green and Austintown, who will jointly share the trailer. Their combined fire prevention public education training hours statistics also contributed to the success of their pursuit of the FP&S grant.

Cardinal Joint Fire District Deputy Chief Don Hutchison said that after a series of major structure fires that he believes could have been averted with the use of a fire extinguisher in the early stages, the district determined that there was room for improvement in their public fire prevention education program. CJFD researched and priced several fire safety trailers, but were most impressed with the realism of the BullEx trailer. Deputy Chief Hutchison said, “It’s a very realistic simulation of an actual structure fire.”

Inside the two-scenario trailer is a kitchen-fire scenario, in which the oven prop catches fire, spreads to a stove-top burner and to a nearby trash can. Interacting with the simulated flames, trainees must call 911, extinguish the digital fire with a laser training extinguisher and turn off the oven and stove to prevent re-ignition Fire is simulated with lights as non-toxic smoke and heat fill the room. The unit can be powered with an optional generator, or it can be hooked up to an electrical outlet. It has a portable widescreen TV monitor that shows four different angles from cameras inside the trailer. Also designed into their mobile fire prevention trailer is a simulated industrial fire scenario with paint locker, trash can and parts-washer props which interact with a simulated electrical fire.

Prior to the purchase of the fire safety trailer, the CJFD provided extinguisher training with a burn pan filled with cardboard. As Hutchison explained, “On a windy day, and we have a lot of inclement weather days in Canfield due to our proximity to Lake Erie, that type of live fire training is not only impractical, it’s unsafe.”

To date, they have brought the trailer to numerous community events including a county fair and a church festival, and have scheduled ongoing training at middle and high schools within their protective area on a regular basis. “We have the trailer scheduled at the local high schools every nine weeks and at the middle schools every six weeks. The students are more attentive during the training than I ever imagined because it’s so realistic,” said Hutchison. “Watching them learn how fast a fire can escalate and seeing them take appropriate safety measures, whether it be to use an extinguisher or call 911 and evacuate, is very gratifying.” He also discussed the results of the methodology used to measure the effectiveness of the fire prevention program, which is a short test given before and after the training, “Before going in, the majority of the trainees scored an average of 60% out of 100%. After going through the trailer, the scores increased dramatically to an average of 90%.”
