The most important factor to consider in design, selection, and use of live fire training props and facilities is that all live fire training is a simulation.
Having conducted a substantial number of live fire training exercises in purpose built props and acquired structures, I have found that each has its advantages.
Pilots in the United States Air Force follow an exacting course of study which includes classroom instruction, simulation, and flight instruction in trainer aircraft such as theT6 and T38 before progression to more advanced aircraft such as the F22 Raptor. Note: This prop was constructed by Fire Training Structures, LLC and is most effective for demonstrating compartment fire behavior. Note: This prop was constructed on site and is designed to demonstrate fire behavior and the impact of tactical operations in large compartments such as found in commercial buildings. Note: This is one of many live fire training facilities at the college (including container based props and other masonry burn buildings).
Instructors must 1) identify the intended learning outcomes and critical elements of context necessary to develop learner proficiency to ensure participant safety and 2) recognize both the capabilities and limitations of the props and facilities available. Fire departments often face a more difficult challenge than determining what type of prop or facility is most effective or how to best use available facilities.
While somewhat beyond the scope of this post, environmental considerations and restrictions can also have a significant impact on both design and operation of live fire training facilities and can also have a significant impact on initial and ongoing cost.
In general, there has not been a concerted and scientifically based effort to determine the critical elements of context required for live fire training. The variety of props, structures, and facilities available for live fire training is substantial, as is the difference in initial, ongoing, and life-cycle cost. In the metal container, it s just metal, in A REAL FIRE WE HAVE ALL KIND OF MATERIAL and now a lot a different emission and absorption, of BTU different level ex 8000 for the wood polyurethan 12,ooo,BTU and polystyren 18,000BTU, it’s a big factor.
Geroges, While I agree that vertical ventilation can be quite effective, it is not appropriate under all circumstances. This confined space training center was constructed from one 20a€™ high cube container, one 10a€™ high cube container, stairs and railings, and a 3a€™ diameter steel pipe. ContainerWest designed, manufactured, and installed a modular municipal wastewater pre-treatment and equalization system for three of Canadian Natural Resources' new camp sites.
Because the units operate in a hazardous location, the electrical components were designed and tested to ensure that it would not initiate an explosion due to arcing contacts or high surface temperatures of equipment. ContainerWest uses SolidWorks Simulations to perform Finite Element Analysis (FEA) on computer models to ensure that the product will meet the stress and deflection criteria defined by the client's objectives. This house is BC Hydro's concept for the next generation of homes focused on sustainability and eco-friendliness. I have searched the forum but I haven't found any newer info on shipping containers for a training unit. I believe the tiotal cost for the cells, the concrete and the having the cells spray painted came in at about $21,000, which was significantly less expensive than a pre-fab or site built burn building oc the same size. We have 2 training facilities, one being a Class A building made up of 4 shipping containers and the other being a Class B building made by Fire Facilities. Our Class A building is 2 containers side by side, one on top of one of those, and one perpendicular to those. Personal opinion: spend a fraction of the money and build a shipping container or brick building. He and I stretched a hose to the neighboring property and fought the fire for more than an hour. We inserted a couple ventilation blocks because some day this area could be an employee’s casita.
All four corners are connected so the beams won’t be able to pull apart under pressure of the heavy tank above.
While I was welding the rebar, the guys went into the jungle and cut 15 strong saplings that we would use to hold the floor form work in place.
At this point it was almost quitting time for the day, but the guys said they wanted to pour the floor, too, so that we would be ready to lay blocks tomorrow.
Next, we formed another beam that went around the top of the entire tank, the rebar all connected as in the other beam. We were anxious to get the roof poured, but first to make our work much easier, we had to apply the plastering to the inside of the tank.
Armando applies the mortar while Alex paints a bonding agent on the smooth concrete beam and corners. In other news, when Cynthia was a teenager, she was in the Masonic order Job’s Daughters, and was crowned DeMolay Sweetheart. This has been a lot of work, but the results are handmade pieces of art that will be a reminder of memories from years ago.
At the end of last month (September), she and I traveled to Savannah, Georgia, for her to have hip replacement surgery.
But all in all, the surgery was a success and her hip now moves like glass on Teflon, and we are back home in Panama after three-weeks away. While we were in Savannah, we took advantage of the opportunity to eat some really good food. And as a bonus, for the first time in eleven years, Cynthia and one of her nieces got to see each other; her niece and her husband traveled from North Carolina for the reunion.
I marked and cut the stack of tiles, preparing them for Hanibal to mortar into place along the wall of the container. There is an easy way to mark a tile for cutting so that it accurately fits against the wall.
One day while I was waiting for Hanibal to return, I installed baseboards in the kitchen and the under-stair half-bath.
And with the bathroom baseboards in place, I no longer had any excuse not to install the toilet in this bathroom. So I spent several hours in the crawlspace and installed PVC pipe from the toilet to the septic tank.
By the way, in the States I had a business where I applied physics to solve air, heat, and moisture problems in houses.
With all the drain and water supply pipes now in place, I just need to find an hour or two to install the toilet and hook up the sink. All week I was able to show up in the morning, open the doors for Armando, then totter back home to the hammock.
Eventually there will be steps down to a terrace area, although the steps won’t be quite so grand or involved as the front steps. When he completed the wall, he moved to the front steps and began applying repello to the sides of the steps. Just a note: The company that hosts this site, DreamHost, recently suffered a catastrophic crash of the server that holds my, and probably many thousands of other sites.
In the previous post we had completed two of the front steps and were preparing for the third. So far the steps have been two-feet front-to-back, but the fifth step is now down at driveway level where you can comfortably step onto this step from the driveway. After lunch, Armando moved to the other side of the big floor to continue digging a trench for the west wall. While Armando dug, I fired up the welder and spent two hours welding cariolas to the last beam and installing a couple more carriolas. Lately we have been working on framing the big floor (front entry, living room, dining room) and on building the broad staircase leading to the front door. While Armando is occupied digging footing trenches for the steps and laying block, I have been welding the floor joists that will support the concrete floor.
The front steps will have the same long-and-low design as the steps from the carport up to my shop.
Each one of the steps has its own concrete footing and row of concrete blocks, so these steps are an ambitious several-week project. While Armando set the blocks, I drilled holes to receive pieces of rebar which will support sheet metal, which in turn will support the concrete steps. Floor Tiles Chosen ~ I needed to start thinking about building the doors for inside the house, but the questions were, “How much space do I leave under the doors for the floor tiles?


In keeping with our Natural-Industrial-Bling decorating style, we chose a tile that looks like marble but is a much more durable porcelain tile. Block Wall Built ~ It seems that we have had a lot of down time in the past two weeks, but it is all a blur and I can’t remember why. Since then we poured the substantial footing, laid the blocks, and poured a strengthening beam at the top of the blocks. Notice the area with the two planks; we had to pass over the septic tank so we poured a beam to span the tank.
You can also see that we have seven concrete support columns poured and rebar placed in the columns.
We’ve had a few empty paint cans that I now store rivets in, and like the wood scraps, the metal scraps get used here and there too. We still have a pile of Styrofoam left over from the interior walls, but Cynthia has a secret project for them.
The Name Game ~ Panama has very few street name signs and doesn’t have street addresses. Neighbor’s House For Sale ~ Directly across the street from our new house and one lot over, sits a modest Panamanian house on two lots (we have one lot). So if you have any interest, I would be happy to connect you with the owner (she speaks English and Spanish). Extra Special Bonus ~ The Banana Report ~ Bigger yet… Way back we fertilized the banana plants.
And finally, with the rivers delivering less and less sand and gravel due to the dry season, we hurried to order more.
I have to admit; I am intrigued by the potential advantages of this prop for demonstration of the influence of horizontal ventilation (both natural and positive pressure) and tactical training in fire attack operations.
However, it is critical to also give some thought to the intended purpose of the building or prop.
Each simulator and aircraft used in this progression is intended to provide the pilot with a specific learning context. Observing fire development and the effect of water application may require a somewhat different context than evolutions involving door entry procedures and integration of fire control and tactical ventilation. Fire departments faced with limited fiscal resources are often limited in their options for live fire training. The cost of live fire training is a major concern and unfortunately is often a major determining factor in the availability and type of live fire training conducted. As discussed in Training Fires and Real Fires, live fire training must look real enough (physical fidelity) and react realistically to tactical operations (functional fidelity). While some work has been done comparing these various options, it is often left to individual departments to sort this out without a consistent framework or methodology. Located at Minoru Park in Richmond, BC, this structure is made entirely of shipping containers!
The base shipping container, a 40'(L) x 11'5"(W) x 9'6"(H), offers the required space to dispense and fill oil drums. The project included nine 40ft self-contained units, each housing five 1750 IG tanks arranged and connected to provide a measureable level of pre-treatment and flow equalization management. The area inside the tanks was classified for Class 1 Div 1 electrical, while the area inside the container and ten feet from any container opening were classified for Class 1 Div 2 electrical.
Among its many notable features is the use recycled shipping containers for structure, pine beetle wood & cedar for exterior cladding, a "green wall" for insulation, and solar panels for collecting clean renewable energy from the sun. The three parallel containers are the burn rooms, with an interior stairwell, doors and windows. A few weeks ago, a neighbor set a small fire of yard debris, then left for his house in the city.
Armando and I scouted a location where the tank would be high in the air to deliver good pressure, and would be mostly out of sight. We stripped the corner forms and made forms for a beam that went around all four sides of the structure. Left yet to do is to form and pour the roof and then plaster the walls outside of the tank. Then each of those rounded pre-fired pieces were glue tacked onto a plain piece of glass, then fired in the kiln to fuse the pieces together. She had a lot of pain, and the need for surgery really became evident on our vacation to Medellin because she was unable to walk nearly as much as she would have liked. The surgeon uses a newer approach to hip replacement, that is to make a relatively-small, four-inch incision at the front of the hip instead of a large incision at the back of the hip.
With this approach, most patients are in the hospital for a night or two, but Cyn was in the hospital for a week. This morning, twenty-five-days post surgery, Cyn made breakfast in our kitchen without the use of a walker or a cane.
I cut some of the kitchen floor tiles down the middle, cut the pieces to length, and using urethane caulk, glued them to the walls and cabinets. I spent many, many days, weeks, and months in crawlspaces, so working under this house is no problem. You can also see that last week I started placing the sheet metal roofing sheets on the big floor. I’ll be back at it soon, although Cynthia tells me that some people in the States have been under the effect of this bug for six weeks.
This site was down for a while and page loading has slowed significantly while they restore perhaps millions of files. At this point the job is getting tedious, but we are urged onward by how good it is looking. We’ll pour a footing and lay two or three rows of concrete blocks to support this end of the floor. While I am welding, Armando has the more difficult job of digging footings, pouring concrete, and laying blocks.
How thick will the tiles be?” So one day Cynthia and I ventured into the big city to Elmec to choose the floor tiles.
I keep thinking that little scraps of wood are ready to go to the burn pile, but as you can see in the above photo, small pieces are still useful for bracing forms and making stakes. We know that there is a problem with the well and the septic system most likely needs work. I think it made a big difference because our neighbor’s plant has a mere fraction of the number of bananas that we have. However, I am not convinced that this prop is universally superior to other types of purpose built structures used for live fire training. This does not necessarily mean that the training is ineffective, simply that each evolution is intended to provide the participants with a specific opportunity to learn and develop skills.
They state that these type of props do not provide a realistic context for showing fire development or honing fire tactical skills. This fire behavior was entirely predictable, but unanticipated (the big difference here is that unanticipated fire behavior is simply the result of a lack of information on the part of the instructors, not by random action by the fire). Single compartment props (regardless of what they are constructed out of) may be a tremendous tool for practicing door entry and nozzle technique much like a putting green or driving range when practicing golf. After transition to high performance aircraft, pilots continue to use simulators to practice skills that may be too high risk to perform in flight. In an ideal world, fire service agencies would have access to various types of live fire training props, each suited to providing the best context for specific levels of training and learning outcomes. If they are fortunate, they have or have access to a purpose built structure that provides a safe and effective environment for a variety of types of live fire training. The initial cost for purpose built props and facilities can be a large hurdle with simple commercially built props and structures costing from $40,000 to hundreds of thousands of dollars (or even more for a commercial fire simulator as illustrated in Figure 5). Because this unit operates in a hazardous location where flammable gases are in the air, all the electrical components were designed and tested to ensure their safe and reliable operation. This was one of our biggest projects to-date and we are very pleased to call it a great success!


This extremely versatile four-storey structure was constructed from 15 modified shipping containers and was designed to meet a wide variety of training scenarios.
The burn cells, to meet NFPA standards, as well as the standards set by the rating service in LA, had to have the wood floor removed and replaced with concrete as well as being painted with a fire resistant sprayed-on paint.
While the other man used the hose, I used a now-destroyed plastic leaf rake to move the fire away from the unburned pine needles. We settled on the area where we were going to build the hydroponic greenhouse (before we decided to sell).
We formed a welded rebar armature that fit in the form work and made a good strong base for the tank. For the event, Cyn is making ten crowns for the former Sweethearts (they passed the crown on to the next Sweetheart so they never got to keep their crowns).
A specially-designed operating table is used, where the legs can be independently lowered and pivoted to expose the, um, bone.
Because Cynthia takes a blood thinner to keep her artificial heart valve from clogging, she needed four units of blood after the surgery as the bleeding wouldn’t stop. She still has a plenty of pain from where they worked on the bone, but it is lessening, and she is more- and more-frequently forgetting to use the cane. We filled in the remaining tummy spaces with meals from Saigon Bistro (best Vietnamese in Savannah) and Whole Foods. He was able to build a block wall on the west side of the big floor and apply repello (stucco) to both sides. We still have to raise the third beam into place, but we are waiting for our neighbor to cut and remove the tree at the west end of the floor; the tree is blocking the space where the beam needs to be and he has the best chainsaw in the neighborhood! During the dry season, much of the clay-based soil turns rock hard and has to be attacked with a pickaxe. I just couldn’t bring myself to build a one-day, contractor-grade, four-foot-wide puny set of stairs. It has a lot of shades of gray, some veining that looks like tree branches and leaves (Natural), and some subtle warm tone browns (leaning toward the reds). The concrete block wall at the front edge of the big floor between containers 2 and 3 is pretty much done.
One piece was practically unusable, but Armando split it with a machete and used it as a paint stirring stick. We give directions by saying for example, turn at the lime green house that was hot pink last year and screaming yellow the year before. I pointed out how nice I think the angles of the new wall go with the angle on the flying buttress carport columns.
An on demand water heater could be installed and still have money left over from that $10K.
Choice of live fire training facilities needs to consider a range of factors including intended learning outcomes, cost (both initial and life-cycle), and environmental considerations and constraints.
Kriss states that when working with acquired structures, you need to strictly adhere to the requirements of NFPA 1403. The putting green and driving range are useful tools in developing specific skills, but they are not the game of golf.
Regarding your comments regarding use of container based props, you are correct in that this is a simulation that partially replicates the conditions encountered under actual fire conditions. This explosion proof enclosure features fluid retention floor, one fixed window, two man doors, and much more. It features a five-storey apartment-style stair tower, a two person roof-mounted rappel bar, two burn rooms with kitchen and bedroom props, and several rooms of varying size, with open spaces as large as 16' x 40'. Had we not acted, lots of pine and palm trees would have burned, plus all our properties were in danger. Exceed this and the pump protection system shuts the pump down for a half-hour to allow it to cool off. Recovery is much, much quicker (weeks as opposed to months) and is less painful because there is much less damage to muscles and tissue. And keeping her blood pressure up in the range that supports life was a challenge for the medical team and quite stressful for me.
At Whole Foods, it was wonderful to have access to apple- or cherry-wood smoked, real, chemical-free bacon. In Savannah, she had four acupuncture treatments that helped greatly reduce the massive swelling and black-and-blue from all the fluids they had to give her to raise her blood pressure. I want to give the company credit; they are keeping me updated with information and have restored every page of my blog. I try to plan his day so that he does the most strenuous work in the morning before the 80 to 85-degree afternoon sun bakes us into the soil. The tile has a fairly high gloss finish (Bling) and will add a luxury feel to balance the Industrial nature of the house. The smoke makes us quit early so the mosquitoes don’t bother us (insert smiley face here).
1) A single compartment prop (such as a demonstration or attack cell) is not designed or intended for tactical training. This may be a bit misleading in that this standard applies to all live fire training (including use of the build and burn structure). The ideal live fire training prop is designed to provide a means to safely, effectively, and efficiently achieve specified learning outcomes. The major problem encountered is when instructors and learners believe that the purpose built structure is intended to fully replicate a realistic fire environment as encountered during emergency incidents. While use of acquired structures can be much more realistic, this too is a simulation as the types and amount of fuel must be different (if we are compliant with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1403. One of the Sweethearts has passed away so in accordance with tradition, Cyn has made a white crown in her honor for the memorial. Funny, after eating this nice bacon, one morning in the hospital I took a bite of the bacon on Cynthia’s breakfast tray. This type of prop is designed to provide a safe and effective environment to demonstrate fundamental fire development in a compartment and the opportunity for learners to practice nozzle technique. Much the same as there is no single tactic that will solve all problems presented on the fireground, there is no single type of live fire training prop that provides the ideal context for all types of live fire training evolutions.
It cannot, much the same as a flight simulator cannot fully replicate flying a high performance aircraft.
These types of training exercise may be best used in sequence to safely and effectively develop the firefighters skills. Of course we could get a 220-volt generator to power the pump, but that is another thing that needs maintenance and fuel and fussing with. In the foreground you can see the hangers I fashioned from rebar to support the ends of the beams; there are more substantial support columns just a few feet away.
2) Multi-compartment container-based props do provide a reasonable context for tactical training with interior doors, obstructions, potential for varied fire location, etc. However, it can replicate critical elements of context that help develop knowledge, skill, and a high level of proficiency. However, as with all other types of prop using Class A fuel (including the build and burn structure), the fuel load and configuration is considerably different than in an actual dwelling or commercial structure. The key is to provide an adequate degree of physical and functional fidelity (look real enough and behaves real enough) to achieve the intended learning outcomes. Kriss also points to the severe fire conditions and damage to both equipment and participants when working in container based props.
