Dräger System 64: Portable Exterior Live Fire Trainer
Dräger worked closely with fire department trainers to develop the Dräger System 64, a propane-fueled exterior live fire training system designed to help fire departments train on exterior live fires according to NFPA 1001. With this affordable training tool, you can produce repeatable and controllable fires to help your firefighters build the confidence and skills they need to fight fires safely and effectively.
To facilitate mobility, the Dräger System 64 has a 6-foot by 4-foot burn pan that is designed to fit inside a pickup truck or small trailer. Setup is easy, using convenient plug connections and quick-coupling hoses. The equipment is light enough to be moved and reconfigured by hand. A choice of props allows you to configure a variety of different training scenarios.
The system has a 24-square foot burn area and uses liquid propane burners with water bath technology. Propane fuel provides realistic, large volume, visible fires. The flame can vary from a low fire to a high fire. An auxiliary connection allows for two separate burn zones and can provide additional fires on some props.
The Dräger System 64 includes an equipment box that connects easily to the burn pan. The pilot and the burner control are designed to be fail-safe and the burner management is designed to meet CAN/CSA B149.3 and NFPA 86 standards.
The System 64 is designed to provide maximum flexibility for your training missions. You can use a variety of props – including a car, a propane cylinder, pallet, BBQ, electric motor, and dumpster – to provide different training scenarios in accordance with NFPA 1001 and your specific requirements. Other customized props are also available on request.
The portable car prop offers a wide range of training scenarios. In conjunction with the burn pan and the auxiliary burner connection, four different fire scenarios are possible, including an engine fire, passenger compartment fire, trunk fire, and wheel fire. In addition, a number of functional elements — such as functional doors and a latched hood with a breach prop — allow for versatile and realistic training.

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.
