This workshop combines classroom sessions with practical fire ground exercises simulating tank fire
specific scenarios and has been developed by Resource Protection International from hands-on experience of real tank fires worldwide.

The workshop is designed to enhance fire responder knowledge, skills and experience in dealing with tank related fire incidents and has been awarded 13 CPD hours by the Institution of Fire Engineers for Continued Professional Development. Delegates will receive specialist training in fire response to tank incidents and have the opportunity to carry out fire ground exercises to back up theoretical knowledge.

The classroom-based session will describe tank types and potential fire scenarios, drawing heavily from
incident experience. The fire ground session will include demonstrations and hands-on exercises and is
designed to ensure delegates are updated in the latest techniques in this important field.

Who Should Attend?
• Fire Responders from industrial and municipal brigades
• Fire Engineers with responsibility for developing fire response strategies
• Safety Professionals
• Health, Safety and Environmental Protection regulators

This workshop comprises one day in the classroom and one day practical training on the fire ground.
Delegates will have an opportunity to take part in each exercise if they wish to do so. Delegates should note that competence in the use of dry powder extinguishers is desirable for this workshop. (See note under Practical Exercise Participation).

All classroom exercises and discussions will be supported and complemented by case histories, video
and slide presentations. Course notes will provide a comprehensive reference source of great value to all
delegates on return to their job location.
