“Providing a cost effective fire and smoke behavior prop that allows current and future firefighters the ability to recognize rapid fire events in a controlled environment.”
This remarkable one of a kind live fire training prop allows current and future firefighters the opportunity to witness rapid fire and smoke behavior events in a controlled environment. Instructors will be able to define over 40 key fire service definitions while using the Max Fire Box.
Properly teaching fire behavior requires more than just providing a short lecture on the topic. The fire service needs to create a proactive approach that incorporates multiple steps. Each of these steps should build on each other to accomplish their goal, similar to climbing a ladder. Unfortunately, most fire fighters are expected to be ready for action after just the first step.
Classroom lectures are an important first step in understanding how fire behaves, but it is only the first step. The next step is viewing and understanding the different stages of a fire in a live environment. The Max Fire Box allows for the live study of fire on a safe, manageable scale, while remaining affordable to small departments. By studying live fire in this way, it prepares fire fighters for the next step, acquired structure burns. This step is where many aspects of fire fighting start to come together, and in order to make the most of these training opportunities, fire fighters should already have a solid knowledge of fire behavior. Recognizing the environment around them will allow for quicker, better decision-making and allow them to better perform their assigned task.
