Fire Dynamics Training Equipment and Firefighting Tools

Flashpoint develops training tools and equipment that are based on fire science and research.  The Fire Dynamics Training Prop uses alcohol fuel to create realistic fire conditions but burns clean, so training can take place indoors, year-round. Control the flowpath and fire with AttackSpike nozzles and SmokeCurtains.

  • Fire Dynamics Training Prop
    Alcohol-based fuel creates realistic modern (ventilation limited) fire conditions but burns clean, so training can take place in an apparatus bay and is not weather dependent....

  • Manage Ventilation and Control the Flowpath

    • Multiple compartments with windows, doors and roof vents give you the flexibility to simulate a wide range of scenarios.
    • The vertical compartment can be used to simulate a stairway, vaulted ceiling, or atrium.
    • The two horizontal compartments can be used to simulate bedrooms, stacked apartments or to create any other vertical fire extension scenario.
    • Open and close internal doorways and ext

    Live Fire Training with Clean Burning Fuel

    • Alcohol-based fuel creates realistic fuel-rich fire conditions but does not produce smoke when burned.
    • Most fires in buildings with modern furnishings are fuel rich and ventilation limited.  Just as plastics and synthetics pyrolize into flammable vapors, so does the alcohol fuel.
    • The fire dynamics created are the same as in modern fires, except that they change faster due to the scale of the model and alcohol fuel.
    • Fuel is available at most hardware stores and is not cost prohibitive.
    • The fuel load is held constant by the surface area of the alcohol trays, the duration of the fire is based on the depth of the fuel.
    • erior windows/doors to control the flowpath.

    Train indoors, year-round

    • Train indoors where there is sufficient ceiling height and clearance to combustible items.  Apparatus bays or any high-ceiling space is feasible.
    • Shifting winds and high humidity can complicate fire dynamics demonstrations.  Eliminate those variables by moving training indoors.
    • Place probe thermocouples inside via pre-drilled 1/8"
      holes.

    Measure Temperatures in Nine Locations

    • Observe fire conditions and temperatures change in real time as windows, doors and vents are manipulated.
    • Determine when/if the fire becomes ventilation limited.
    • Set-up for use with Flashpoint Temperature Monitoring System.

  • AttackSpike Piercing Nozzle
    Small Diameter Piercing Nozzle for fast application of water without allowing air into the compartment....

  • AttackSpike Nozzles are quickly deployed by a single firefighter to soften the target and enhance the effectiveness of advancing crews. This provides a tactical advantage in attic or basement fires that are difficult to access. Precision water application, without allowing air to reach the fire, provides an initial
    knockdown, decreasing temperatures and limiting fire spread. 
  • Temperature Monitoring System
    Measure, Record and Replay temperatures during training evolutions in your facility, acquired structure or even doll-house prop....

  • Visualize conditions inside any training building or acquired structure and be alerted when temperatures reach pre-set levels. The system can also be used to enhance scale-model prop training by illustrating the temperatures inside closed compartments. Thermocouples are placed inside the training environment and are plugged into the system. Quickly create floorplans or cross section views with the mapping feature.

    During the evolution temperatures and a heatmap display the real time conditions. The data can be viewed on any nearby tablet, laptop or smartphone. After the evolution
    scenarios can be replayed for debriefs and critiques.
