APAC Xtreme Fire School is back! 15th–18th January 2018, Thailand
Following the success of the 2017 APAC Xtreme Fire School, Williams Fire & Hazard Controls (WF&HC) Industrial team is coming back to Asia! The next fire school will be held from 15th – 18th January 2018 at the NPC training facility in Rayong, Thailand. It is now open for registration to all fire fighters and fire industry practitioners in the region. The last event had participants from Australia, Brunei, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
Designed to offer the most comprehensive hands-on learning experience for those involved in operational industrial fire response at on-shore petroleum, oil & gas facilities, participants will be taught the latest methodology and fire behaviours using real life case studies. They will also get the opportunity to tackle real pressure fed, hydrocarbon fuel and elevated tank fires.
The course has been designed to benefit emergency response specialists and HSE managers. The field training (incorporating live fire exercises) will suit those directly involved in operational roles, such as fire officers and municipal fire departments, while the classroom course will be extremely useful to specifying engineers, safety consultants, corporate safety specialists and chief fire officers.
In addition to learning fire behaviour and tactics from experienced industry specialists, participants will also be able to get hands-on with the latest product innovations from WF&HC, including the impressive Ambassador 2X6 Gun Trailer, capable of discharge flow rates between 2000 – 6000 GPM. WF&HC is the only global company that responds to emergencies with its own hardware and specially formulated foam concentrate that goes beyond the industry standard. This symbiosis means that participants will see the results of the learnt foam chemistry first hand.
Chauncey Naylor, Director for Training & Emergency Response Operations at WF&HC, commented: “When faced with fires at petroleum, oil or gas facilities it is experience that makes the difference and this course is the perfect opportunity to gain that experience in a safe environment. Everything that we do is governed by in-depth knowhow whether it be designing new products, writing methodology or formulating new foam and we want to impart this knowledge on to as many people in the industry as possible.”
In addition to learning from industry leading professionals at WF&HC, participants will also be able to discuss best practice and scenarios with their peers from across the sector. “Comprehensive contents. Knowledgeable instructors. An extremely useful course for fire fighters” commented S.K. Phang – Chief Fire Officer from Shell Eastern Petroleum (Singapore) who attended the last APAC school in Rayong.
The course, which is delivered in English, will include both live fire training and classroom-based education.
