HAAGEN has been chosen to design and build a mobile bus fire simulator for the Taiwan National Fire Agency.
The Agency was prompted to invest in their hands-on training because of a considerable increase in the number of bus fires in recent years due to old and poorly maintained buses. The New HAAGEN Bus Fire Simulator will allow firefighters to get hands-on experience responding to these emergencies.
The simulator is designed to accurately resemble a real bus, including the front grille, stairs leading up to the driver’s seat, and passenger seats. Trainees will be able to experience responding to a rear engine fire, flashover, and digital driver seat fire. The project is set to be completed this fall.
