Genuine Swede Survival System

​After two Swedish firefighters lost their lives to flashover in 1986, the Swedish government asked the country’s Rescue Service to develop a full burn behavior program that included flashover training. The intent of the program was to help firefighters recognize extreme fire behavior and avoid injuries and death.
Dräger brought this live fire training program to North America in 1990 and has delivered hundreds of systems in the US and Canada to fire departments, fire academies, airports, military agencies, and more.

Dräger Teaches....Dräger Learns

​After having conducted hundreds of training sessions using our standard Phase 1-5 Swede Survival Systems since 1990, Dräger has expanded the structure lineup and training scenarios, without sacrificing the core curriculum, integrity of content, and overall safety. Much of the new content has been the result of listening to the instructors and incorporating new, innovative features and scenarios. Today’s lineup now includes an Advanced Phase 2 design, featuring expanded props and scenarios in a mobile, compact unit, Phase 5 Modified designs, fully customizable to meet individual agency requirements, and a new Phase 6 concept, expanding training simulations to office and hotel designs.
