Dräger Mobile Live Fire Training Unit (MLFTU)
Realistic fire simulation
The firefighters are confronted with real flames, extreme heat, high humidity, severely restricted visibility and thick smoke during their training. This allows them to train for an emergency as realistically as possible.
To address individual training requirements, all systems are designed specifically for the customer. Applicable standards and the latest technology are incorporated in every design.
The selection of typical fire scenarios includes:
- Multiprop (various props available)
- Wall fire
Mobile training unit
The MLFTU is easily transportable. It is equipped with an on-board power generator and a supply of gas cylinders. It can therefore be operated completely without external supplies. The MLFTU can also be combined with other fixed training installations.
In spite of extreme heat, the MLFTU is designed for safety during training. Redundant safety devices for gas and temperature monitoring in accordance with relevant NFPA and CSA codes and guidelines control the conditions in the burn areas. If defined limits are exceeded or the emergency cut-off switch is operated, the system is automatically switched off and forced ventilation is activated.
Dräger's Mobile Live Fire Training Units are available with different layout options, based on an individual customer's training requirements and budget. In a compact form, they integrate elements of a fire simulation system for training in accordance with NFPA 1403. Typical configurations include 1 to 2 fires, a control and monitoring station and gas and power for the self-sufficient operation of the system.
The fire training trailer can be equipped with multiple different training props, such as a moveable wall system. Re-configurable wall panels allow for flexible variations of confined space elements.
The accessible roof of the fire simulation trainer can also be used as an extended training area. A roof ventilation prop (pitched roof) is also available for the Dräger Mobile Live Fire Training Unit.
Operation with gas cylinders
Dräger fire simulation trailers are supplied with gas two DOT compliant propane cylinders with a capacity of 420 lb (190 kg) each. The cylinders are located in a dedicated room and do not reduce the available space in the training area of Dräger’s MLFTU.

Collateral: Fire Training Systems
(Acrobat .PDF) The best way to learn how to fight a fire is by fighting real fires. However, with today’s improved fire prevention methods and public education, there are fewer fires to fight – which means less opportunity for real-life experiences.
Whitepaper: Obtaining Training Equipment Through AFG
(Acrobat .PDF) 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.
