Dräger Swede Survival System Phase 6 - Interior Hallway
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 6 system is an excellent knowledge-based training environment that gives 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.
The Phase 6 system has a 70-foot central hallway and 20-foot containers as burn chambers. This wood-fueled system lets you train for fire attack, smoke conditions, search and rescue, and nozzle techniques through the main corridor. Due to the length of the central hallway and the number of potential burn chambers, the design offers various training scenarios.
With proper maintenance, Swede Survival Systems have been known to withstand more than 1,000 training sessions. If a burn chamber eventually becomes unstable due to heavy use, it is designed to be replaced, continuing the service life of the training unit.
The chamber 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 System Phase 6 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 6 training system.
Phase 6 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 6 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
(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.
