TRANSPORTATION FIRE TRAINING

Expose your firefighters to the unique challenges of fighting fires in a public transportation setting, or in vehicles themselves. Transportation emergencies can range from single vehicle accidents to large scale, mass casualty incidents in subways, train stations and other hubs of mass transportation. Are your firefighters prepared to face the full range of transportation related calls that may come their way?

BullEx has designed and executed training scenarios to prepare firefighters for the wide variety of hazards that accompany transportation emergencies. Provide your trainees with true-to-life scenes that allow them to determine the appropriate actions and execute a safe and effective response.

Choose form our portfolio of transportation training tools, which includes subway car, train car, large vehicle, and passenger car fire training props. Or, work with BullEx to develop a training tool to fit your specific objective.

TRAINING SCENARIOS

Subway firefighting
The BullEx subway fire trainer provides a true-to-life scene that supports the realistic and complex training necessary to determine the appropriate actions and execute a safe and effective response by emergency responders.

The BullEx subway fire trainer replicates exactly what a subway system would look like. It features full-size cars complete with lighting, smoke, seating and video capability. A number of fire-rescue training scenarios can be created such as structurally damaged subway cars which contain debris and hazards associated with a tunnel collapse. Our training cars provide realistic training with different simulations such as a seat fire, engine fire, and brake fire, and additional simulations can be added to meet the trainee’s needs.

Vehicle Fire Prop
The BullEx Vehicle Fire Prop is a heavy-duty training tool with intense flames, real heat and smart controls. Multiple burn zones allow you to create engine, passenger compartment, fuel spill and tire fires. The vehicle fire prop features heavy gauge steel working doors and trunk that are built for the rigors of live fire training. The integrated cooling system keeps steel cool to prolong the life of the prop and allows for lengthy, heavy fire exercises.

Tunnel firefighting
Underground fires, road tunnel and railway tunnel accidents place exceptional challenges on the firefighter. BullEx tunnel training facilities include all the elements firefighters would find in real life situations, including thick smoke, extreme heat, restricted spaces, and blocked access. Simulate tunnel fires, vehicle pile-ups, or accidents involving hazardous materials. Vehicle props can include cars, vans, trucks, and buses. These vehicles can be operated individually or combined to create fast-spreading blazes or flashovers.

CONSTRUCTION TYPE

Our Training Structures and Centers product line includes portable stand-alone fire props and larger mobile trailers, semi-trailers and modified training containers. BullEx also has extensive experience in the development of full-scale fixed training facilities including fire training towers, training ships, aircraft simulators, industrial complexes and multi-structure training sites. Transportation fire trainers are almost always constructed as a stand-alone fire training prop. These can be ordered alone or as part of a larger training complex.

COMPLEX

300x226-rounded-corner-gray-stroke-complex-training-structures-dordrecht-1BullEx 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. Because complexes are often designed to simulate the surrounding region’s landscape, public transportation fire training is often included. Similarly, organizations are encouraged to train on responding to other prevalent vehicle fires, whether they be passenger vehicles, school buses, or industrial vehicles.

FIRE TRAINING PROPS

300x226-rounded-corner-the-heat-vehicle-fireBullEx Fire Training Props are stand-alone units that can be positioned virtually anywhere around the training site. Fire Training Props can be transported to multiple locations or built into a fixed installation at your training location. BullEx has developed a wide range of training props that can be used to teach transportation fire response, including passenger vehicles, public transportation vehicles, and industrial vehicles.

FIRE TECHNOLOGY

At BullEx, we can incorporate a range of fire technologies into our transportation training tools. Gas-bas technology most closely simulates the heat and flames of transportation fires, but digital fire technology can also be used for effective training in areas where live-fire isn’t possible.

DIGITAL FIRE TECHNOLOGY

300x226-rounded-corner-attack-digital-system-hoseline-3BullEx Digital fire technology provides comprehensive hands-on training using realistic, self-generating digital flames that respond directly to the trainees actions. Digital fire technology is tough enough to be used with anything in your firefighting arsenal, including a hose line. Digital fire technology is ideal for organizations that are looking to train in locations where live-fire isn’t permitted, or simply want an alternative to live-fire training.

GAS-BASED

300x226-rounded-corner-gray-stroke-gas-based-1Gas-based fire technology is an integral element in BullEx training systems and centers. Propane and natural gas fires allow us to use real heat and smoke to accurately simulate transportation accident fires. These training tools are equipped with multiple burn zones, allowing instructors to vary their evolutions.
