Industrial Fire Brigade - Incipient Level DVD Series
Produced by Action Training Systems
Industrial fire brigades can provide rapid, on-site response to fires and other workplace emergencies, minimizing injuries, loss of life, and property damage. Our first series of 12 programs for the industrial sector is designed for training fire brigade members to the incipient level, which provides the capability to extinguish incipient-stage fires while wearing normal work clothing. This basic training is a prerequisite for advanced exterior and/or interior structural-level fire brigades.
Students see how brigades are organized and are shown their functions and limitations under occupational safety regulations. The series demonstrates the operation and maintenance requirements for common industrial firefighting equipment, such as portable extinguishers and fixed extinguishing systems, fire alarm and detection systems, fire hoses, nozzles, appliances, and tools. The series also provides demonstrations of fire behavior, hazard communication systems used at industrial sites, evacuation procedures, fire safety surveys, and the incident management system.
