While Fireblast simulators are widely used throughout the United States, its top-of-the-line industrial fire training simulators are of interest in the Middle East and beyond – which is why you can find Fireblast Global exhibiting at the Intersec Expo in Dubai. As the biggest and most important security and safety conference in the region and very possibly the world, no venue is better.
The Oil and Gas Industry
As the biggest producer of
petroleum in the world, the Middle East has an essential need for the
industrial fire training simulators Fireblast offers, as do the oil refinement
and transportation companies that are at the heart of the oil industry in the
United States. When accidents happen, it’s vital that your employees be
prepared to handle whatever happens. You can visit Fireblast’s exhibition at Intersec on January 19th through the
21st, at booth 3-110F, where you can learn more about their industrial fire
For example, if you are especially
conscious of air and water contamination as a consequence of your training
exercises, you may be interested to learn that Fireblast’s simulators use clean-burning fuels such as propane.
Featuring PLC computed controlled valving to regulate flow, you need never
worry that the extreme conditions of the training exercise will leave you out
Before the Fire
fire training simulators can recreate any number of hazardous materials scenarios
that could occur at your facility, giving your employees a variety of different
scenarios to work within their training. Firstblast
will work with your director of training chief to ensure that they are trained
in every aspect of safety and security that will be of service to them by
specifying, designing, manufacturing, and installing a training simulator.
This training will begin with the
tools, appliances, and equipment used to protect your personnel and fight
fires. The use of self-contained breathing apparatuses, dry chemical agents,
and other safety equipment that can help to contain hazardous materials and
deal with other dangers can all be covered in your training simulation.
Once your personnel have a strong
understanding of how to use the tools of firefighting and hazardous materials
containment, they can train in pre-emergency planning. The key to avoiding a
tragedy is to be ready for anything that could happen on the refinery or
tanker; the three Ps – patience, planning, and practice – will ensure that your
personnel are ready for exactly that.
An understanding of the strategies and tactics that are best
employed in particular situations is important to pre-planning, as well as to
smart behavior in the midst of an incident. Key to this understanding is
training in fire behavior; some firefighters like to talk about fire as if it
is alive and has a mind of its own, and while this is not actually the case,
fire does have certain behaviors that are predictable. When you work with the
knowledge of what a fire is most likely to do and when, you can work to deal
with that fire before it gets out of hand.
During and After the Fire
With your employees as prepared as
possible prior to the fire, it is important for them to learn how to handle an
actual fire in the moment. This involves training in how to conduct rescue
procedures safely and effectively. Salvage and overhaul operations must be
conducted where the fire did serious damage; whatever can be salvaged may yet
be of use, and where an overhaul is necessary, business cannot be continued
until that overhaul is carried out.
will allow you to consistently and repeatedly train your employees with the
simple push of a button. With the ability to create either large or small
training simulations in less time, you can save your instructors’ time, thus
lowering operating costs.
fire training simulators can provide a live fire-training environment that
perfectly recreates the kind of dangers your personnel might someday face.
The safety of your employees and
equipment is important to you, which is why you should employ the best possible
training – and although you wouldn’t want to put them into a truly dangerous
situation, you want them to experience as much of the reality of a fire in
their training as is possible.
