• Description

    The course provides firefighting team members with specific training to handle internal fires and situations of great heat productions.

  • Course program

    Use of respiratory protective devices

    Theoretical aspects

    • Recognizing cases where the self-contained breathing apparatus is necessary:
    • High temperature air
    • Suboxygenated atmospheres
    • Mixture of air and toxic products
    • Breathing physiology:
    • Airway system (how human breathing works)
    • Mechanisms that control breathing frequence and air consumption
    • Respiratory muscles and types of breathing (thoracic, diaphragmatic and clavicular)


    • Breathing techniques
    • r-ebt
    • skip breathing
    • breathing aimed at the intervention performance


    Practical sessions


    • Respiratory protective devices wearing/removing
    • Breathing through repiratory protective devices
    • Self-contained breating apparatus wearing (above head)
    • Self-contained breathing apparatus wearing (body sides)
    • 5 pints mask wearing
    • Ergonomic regulation of the self-contained breathing apparatus
    • Performance test sequences
    • Crossing tight spaces without the breathing apparatus
    • Checks on devices before the intervention
    • Devices wearing/removing
    • Practical session in an environment filled with non-toxic smoke
    • Familiarization with all the devices
    • Breathing tests, use of respiratory protective devices



    • Hygiene and healthiness standards
    • Contaminated PPE management after intervention


    Simulation of fire in a multi-storey building


    • Preparation activities out of the building
    • Equipment and breathing apparatus checks
    • Test on fire extinction techniques which will be used inside the building
    • Instructions on the imminent intervention simulation
    • Pre-entry breathing


    • Activities inside the multi-storey building simulator (the scenario will be agreed with the customer, there are more than one possibility: fire, search and rescue…)
    • Positioning out of the building
    • Combustible material triggering
    • Start of intervention activities
    • Entry into the building
    • Use of fire extinction techniques (previously acquired)
    • Direct fire extinction attack on the combustible material


    • Outdoor Activities after the intervention inside the building


    • PPE removal (they ensure top-level protection)
    • Final debriefing
  • Next dates

    to be defined

  • Certification


  • Prerequisites


  • Purpose

    To provide the emergency team members with a specific training aimed at dealing with internal fires, convective heat and radiant heat

  • Conducted by
