Williams Xtreme Fire Training School

Published:  13 June, 2016

Williams Fire & Hazard Control will once again host its Xtreme Industrial Fire & Hazard Training School at the Gesip Fire Training Facility in Northern France, 25–29 September 2016. 

Attendees of the five-day course will benefit from the combined experience of Williams’ rapid response team, who have successfully fought over 200 of the industry’s most threatening flammable liquid fires during the last 34 years.

The course has been designed to offer a comprehensive hands-on learning experience for those involved in operational industrial fire response at on-shore petroleum, oil and gas facilities and to benefit emergency response specialists and HSE managers.

Participants will be taught on the latest methodology and fire behaviours using real life case studies and have the opportunity to tackle real pressure fed, hydrocarbon fuel, combined elevated tank and bund fires.

The Hot Course (incorporating live fire exercises) is intended to suit those directly involved in operational roles, such as fire officers and municipal fire departments. The Cold Course can be extremely useful to specifying engineers, safety consultants, corporate safety specialists, Chief Fire Officers and CEOs.

In addition to being able to learn fire behaviour and tactics from experienced industry specialists, participants will also have access to hands-on training with the latest product launches from Williams, including the Ambassador 2x6 Gun Trailer, capable of discharge flow rates between 2,000 – 6,000lpm. 

Chauncey Naylor, director for training & emergency response operations at Williams, commented: ‘When faced with fires at petroleum, oil or gas facilities we have learnt that it is experience that makes the difference and this course can be the perfect opportunity to gain that experience in a safe environment. Everything that we do is governed by in-depth knowhow whether it be designing new products, writing methodology or formulating new foam and we want to impart this knowledge on to as many people in the industry as we possibly can.’

In addition to learning from industry leading professionals at Williams, participants will also be able to discuss best practice and scenarios with their peers from across the sector. One participant from a previous course commented: ‘The course provided excellent information that is definitely applicable to my job, I learned a lot. I’m very impressed with the entire course and knowledge of the instructors – every question I had was answered in detail.’

The course, which will be delivered in English, will include both live fire training and classroom-based education.
