HOW IT WORKS
HAAGEN has experience designing and building facilities from the ground up, but in many cases HAAGEN fire technology can be retrofitted into an existing tower. Regardless of whether your structure is metal, concrete, or even container based, we have the ability to outfit it with our safety and fire technology.
Instructors currently using traditional class A fires can easily upgrade to our PHASE® 2 Class A fire technology, which uses propane-based burners to ignite class A materials for minimal down-time and highly repeatable and controllable evolutions.
HAAGEN can also design and build a new facility aimed at your specific training needs. From single story residential structures to large scale industrial and commercial facilities, HAAGEN can customize scenarios or can recommend popular layouts as a starting point.
With HAAGEN training facilities, the possible fire scenarios are endless, meaning you can provide trainees with a comprehensive training experience suited to match your needs, even as they evolve over time or as your trainees gain experience.
At HAAGEN, we can incorporate a range of fire technologies into our structures and centers. Choose from digital, gas-based and our dual-burner, clean air options. Our structures all feature intelligent controls which make fires repeatable to decrease downtime and increase training time. Expose trainees to realistic situations and multiple evolutions. Every system includes built in safety features to keep your trainees safe and provide ample teaching opportunities.
Gas-based fire technology is an integral element in HAAGEN training systems and centers. Propane and natural gas fires allow us to use real heat and smoke to accurately simulate nearly any fire behavior. Training evolutions can easily be repeated to allow all trainees to get hands-on firefighting experience.
PHASE® 2 Class A Fire Technology
HAAGEN PHASE® 2 Fire Technology features dual combustion technology with the fire created by both gas and wood. PHASE® 2 technology was developed to allow firefighters to utilize real burning wood in their training scenarios without worrying about the environmental effects.
HAAGEN Digital fire technology provides comprehensive hands-on training using realistic, self-generating digital flames that respond directly to the trainees actions. Digital fire technology is tough enough to be used with anything in your firefighting arsenal, including a hose line. Challenge your trainees to fight digital flames for realistic, intense hands-on training.
HAAGEN training structures and centers provide hands-on training solutions for any high risk industry. We serve a wide range of industries requiring fire and safety training including airline, military, fire departments, oil and gas organizations, petro-chem companies and training academies. Contact HAAGEN with your training objective and we’ll work with you every step of the way to custom craft a solution.
Aviation Fire Training
Aircraft fires represent a special challenge in firefighting due to the extreme nature of the potential hazard and the immediate impact on both the passengers and aircrew. HAAGEN offers a number of fire training simulators to create a series of different emergency scenarios designed to meet aviation fire training objectives.
Fire Behaviour Training Systems
While many firefighters glean the majority of their fire behavior knowledge from classroom instruction, hands-on training is the most effective method of learning when it comes to confronting dangerous fire emergencies face to face. To add a hands-on element to your training, HAAGEN creates training systems and centers to provide realistic training in a safe environment.
HazMat Training Systems
HAAGEN HazMat training tools can either be stand-alone units such as training tankers, or installations that are built into a fixed structure. HazMat training systems can simulate hazardous leaks with water and vapor that may spread to a full scale fire if not contained properly. Trainees get hands-on experience locating the source of the leak and turning off the valve, or plugging the hole with stoppers or bands.
Marine Fire Training
Marine fires are extremely difficult to handle because of the complexity of a ship’s layout, making it difficult to safely access the seat of the fire. HAAGEN has experience designing and developing diverse marine fire training systems. HAAGEN can produce simulated marine environments within a training structure, or produce actual marine vessels modified for fire training scenarios.
Firefighters and first responders in the mining industry face unique changing when preparing to face fire risks. To make training as realistic as possible, HAAGEN is capable of incorporating our fire training props into modified mining shafts or modify props to fit your mine’s specific objectives.
The isolated nature of working on-board an offshore platform brings a multitude of challenges, as well as a number of potential risks. HAAGEN has developed advanced training systems especially for offshore emergency response teams to gain true-to-life experience and competence in fire fighting, in a controlled environment.
Oil and Gas
HAAGEN has the experience necessary to provide training structures designed especially for the petrochemical industry. Our systems are designed to create realistic training challenges for emergency responders to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and effectively manage these hazardous fires.
Hands-on search and rescue training is extremely important for fire-fighters. Help your trainees learn to save people trapped in fires and other dangerous situations without experiencing undue stress or breathing difficulties during a real-life emergency. HAAGEN can provide your trainees with a challenging yet safe and controlled environment for gaining mask confidence and confined space operations skills.
HAAGEN is capable of supplying all the necessary training tools and structures for your structural fire departments. HAAGEN provides the tools necessary to train both new and advanced firefighters on sizing up structures, initial fire attack, fire behavior, ventilation, water supply, hose stream application, search and rescue, firefighter survival, and FAST.
Expose your firefighters to the unique challenges of fighting fires in a public transportation setting, or in vehicles themselves. Choose from our past portfolio of transportation training tools, or work with HAAGEN to create a training tool to fit your specific objective.
HAAGEN Urban Search and Rescue training structures and centers provide challenging team training exercises for firefighters of all skill levels. While Urban Search and Rescue training is increasingly vital, it is extremely difficult to realistically simulate. HAAGEN provides the hands-on training your firefighters need.
