The three-storey ‘hot’ training unit provides a number of training opportunities and scenarios for students to learn a variety of fire fighting techniques.
The unit is split into a number of different spaces commonly found on board vessels, from cabins to the engine room. The hot unit utilises real fires of different types and intensity in which students are subject to the actual effects of heat, humidity and smoke in a truly realistic environment.
There are also a number of access and egress points, hatches and ladders, and crawl spaces, all similar to what can be found on board ship.
Students undertaking more advanced training will be expected take charge of the unit as if it were a ship and fully utilise all equipment and resources available in order to extinguish the fires in pre-planned scenarios.
