The aims of the STCW Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting course is to give all persons intending to go to sea a basic induction and knowledge of the ways in which fires are caused and the precautions to be taken to minimise the risk of fires on board ships. Maintain a state of readiness to respond to emergency situation involving fires aboard ship. Fight and extinguish fires using fire fighting apparatus and appliances provided on board. Act as a member of a fire party, including use of self-contained breathing apparatus.
The Allabroad fire training simulator is a joint funded project by Allabroad and the Gibraltar Fire service, to provide MCA training and to train local fire servicemen and women. It's one of the safest in the world, all the fires are under instant control of the operator, flashover conditions can be created at the push of a button, and even though you will be wearing fully functional breathing apparatus, the well vented unit has breathable air at all times. If you are not happy in confined spaces, don't worry, you are never more than 3 metres from any emergency exit and emergency stop buttons that shut the entire unit down whilst instantly venting all the heat out. Training is specifically to prevent accidents, not cause them. All training our is delivered by our in house team and conducted under the watchful eyes of 2 additional firemen from 2 separate fire services. Your safety is our top priority.
