Dräger Swede Survival System Phase 2 - Interior Attack
Proven system, training included
Class A Dräger Swede Survival Systems combine purpose-built training units with Dräger-certified instructional programs that train firefighters on fire behavior in different situations. As a result, you can continually build the abilities and confidence of firefighters. The Phase 2 System builds upon the knowledge gained in the Phase 1 System by giving firefighters first-hand experience of multiple fire scenarios in a controlled setting.
At Dräger, we believe in a progressive learning process when teaching the characteristics of fire. Our instructional program can be traced to the multi-phased live fire training program developed by the Swedish Rescue Services Agency in Skovde, Sweden.
Simple design offers various scenarios
The Phase 2 System is constructed of a 40-foot (12 meter) container which includes a burn chamber and multiple entry points. This wood-fueled system lets you train for fire attack, smoke conditions, search and rescue, and nozzle techniques through the primary entry points. This structure is offered as a stationary or a mobile unit, which allows for training at multiple locations.
Rugged construction for long-term use
With proper maintenance and use, Swede Survival Systems have been known to withstand more than 1,000 training sessions. The burn chamber walls and ceiling are lined with high temperature insulation material that is protected behind a seal-welded layer of 11-gauge steel, as well as 10-gauge steel flooring. This protects the structural integrity of the container from the grueling temperature swings that the container is designed to withstand over many hundreds of training evolutions.
Two-day instructor certification workshop
The Dräger Swede Survival Phase 2 System includes a two-day train-the-trainer workshop for up to 10 instructors. This workshop is conducted by instructors who have extensive experience training various evolutions in the Dräger Swede Survival Systems. This training and certification process ensures that your instructors become thoroughly familiar with the safe and effective use of the Phase 2 training system.
Expert training comes standard from Dräger
Phase 2 training includes a four-hour classroom session covering the theory of operation, recommended loading procedures, pre-evolution briefing, safety procedures, and maintenance of the system.
Classroom training is followed by the hands-on portion of the training, which consists of operating the Phase 2 with the trainer’s instructions. Each student executes a complete training evolution—from loading the materials, inspecting students prior to entry, igniting the fire, controlling the growth of the fire and stages of evolution, to ending the session and debriefing.
