  • Fire alarm and detection systems
  • Fire fighting equipment and tactics
  • The impact of fire fighting techniques on stability during marine incidents
  • Fire fighting in ports, at sea and inland waterways
  • Action on arrival & operational considerations
  • Effects of heat and humidity & the removal and cooling of hot gases
  • Hose management and use of fire fighting media.
  • Response to emergency situations involving fires
  • Fire fighting and fire extinguishing using portable equipment
  • The use of breathing apparatus

During this course you will ultimately learn how to act as an effective member of a fire fighting party.

We use a modern fire training rig with gas fired cribs and synthetic non-toxic smoke to produce a very realistic, controllable, environmentally friendly and safe training environment.
