Dräger Swede Survival Systems Phase 4 | Simulated Garage Fire
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 advance the abilities and confidence of firefighters. The Phase 4 System builds upon the knowledge gained in other Phases, by simulating an entry room with heat and smoke leading to a large live fire room, providing additional fire attack scenarios.
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.
The Phase 4 System is configured with two 40 ft (12.19 m) containers side-by-side and a 20 ft (6.09 m) container installed perpendicularly at the entry point of the burn chamber. This layout forms a hallway entry into a double-wide burn chamber for more advanced and dynamic scenarios. The additional width lets you train two nozzle teams entering from opposite sides of the structure. This system is offered with an optional car prop, to simulate a more realistic garage scenario.
With proper maintenance, Swede Survival Systems have been known to withstand more than 1,000 training sessions. The burn chamber floors, walls and ceiling are lined with high temperature insulation material that is protected behind a seal-welded layer of 11 gauge steel. This protects the structural integrity of the container from the grueling temperature swings the container is designed to withstand over many hundreds of training evolutions.
The Dräger Swede Survival Phase 4 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 4 training system.
Dräger Phase 4 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 4 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.

Whitepaper: Obtaining Training Equipment Through AFG
This whitepaper explains the purpose of the FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program and outlines the kinds of equipment that it typically covers. The focus of this paper is on training systems, which can represent a substantial capital expenditure to fire departments and colleges. The discussion describes the various Dräger Class A and Class B training systems that are eligible for an AFG grant, and incudes tips on how to maximize the success of your grant application.
