Are You Compliant? Lessons from Buncefield – A New Perspective, 18-19 September, 2012, Teesside University (UK)
Published: 08 June, 2012
Firefighting in the high hazard industries is a specialist business. Incidents occur on a surprisingly regular basis globally. Gaining hands on experience with specialist equipment backed up by application knowledge and fixed system alternatives is always valuable, and, until now, a rare objective to achieve.
Hawkes Fire, in partnership with Cleveland Fire & Rescue Service and Angus Fire, are offering a two-day workshop for industrial and municipal fire-fighters 18-19 September 20102.
The programme will cover:
- engineering input from industry experts in fixed fire protection & suppression systems
- major tank fire strategies
- hands on with deployment and retrieval of large monitors and Hi-Vol Equipment
- logistical requirements
- emergency response plans
- control/burndown policies
- post fire security
- validation training on portable foam equipment, inline inductors-branches, foam carts including standard tests.
Compliance will be the byword: since guidance was published following Buncefield, both municipal fire-fighters and their industrial cousins have had to re-appraise their emergency arrangements to ensure they provide for all reasonably foreseeable emergency scenarios arising out of credible major hazard incidents.
This will be a unique opportunity to share and learn with experienced practitioners
