SCBA training can take place in any type of training structure, from an add-on to your training complex, or a container, mobile or fixed facility. All training environments can be adapted to suit the instructor’s training needs. The entire system is visually monitored from a remotecontrol room.
BullEx has become the world leader in the design and development of multidisciplinary fire training campuses and can work with clients every step of the way from concept to planning to construction.
BullEx is the world leader in designing, engineering and building large-scale multi-disciplinary training complexes. Our Training Complexes often combine a range of fire technologies that apply to the full range of training disciplines. Complexes often include an SCBA training gallery in order to fully train firefighter on all the skills they will need in an emergency situation.
BullEx training facilities include multi-story training towers, fixed petro-chemical structures and a wide range of other buildings that are ideal for interior and exterior fire training. An SCBA training gallery can be built as a stand alone facility or the gallery can make up a room or section of the facility.
BullEx Training Containers and Roll-offs are a great solution for departments with large-scale training needs and limited space. Containers are portable, but offer all of the training capabilities that a fixed space provides. SCBA training galleries can be comprised of a single container with movable walls and obstacles. Multiple containers can be used to configure intricate training environments.
Mobilize your training with BullEx Mobile Fire Training Systems. Our mobile training trailers are fully integrated with our patented fire technology, power, and fuel systems. SCBA galleries on trailers can range from a single room to a tractor-trailer sized unit with multiple stories. Our mobile systems are self-contained training facilities, which can be easily transported to any location to conduct evolutions where it’s most convenient for your trainees.
To add realism to training scenarios and provide additional challenges, a range of obstacles and special effects can be added to the training system. SCBA training galleries can be outfitted with doors, movable walls, and hatches that can be opened or sealed with magnetic locks to intensify the scenario. Moveable obstacles can require additional physical effort from the trainee, testing his or her stamina and making it even more critical that they manage their breathing techniques.
Alternatively, some doors can be fitted with a key-code panel, challenging trainee to open them during the exercise. The locks are operated from the control room and can be released instantly by the instructor to maintain a safe situation.
Leaking gas pipes, valves that need to be shut off, and electrical systems that must be disconnected can also be added. The training environment can be either lit or unlit, filled with smoke and the optional heating system can raise the temperature to over 120°F as well as raising the humidity level.
BullEx’s SCBA training units are the ideal place to practice breathing techniques before entering a live-fire training environment or a real fire call.
The training would not be complete without training in firefighter rescue. Rapid Intervention Training can be done with a specialty designed “DENVER DRILL”. This prop will allow a firefighter, or a team of firefighters, interior egress with a live downed firefighter victim or BullEx smart dummy. Access can also be taught from the exterior of the ground level prop in a safe and effective environment. Additionally, a fully transparent “looking glass” allows other trainees to view the interior RIT operations from the exterior.
Complete your SCBA training with a fitness area. This area is specially designed for hard physical exercise in full fire fighting gear, including breathing apparatus. With the trainee’s condition really put to the test, this is the ideal place to practice breathing techniques before entering the training environment.
