NDSCS has a Bull EX fire safety trailer equipped with two simulation packages to provide fire prevention education.
The first simulation is a kid's Bedroom Scenario designed to teach children what to do in case of fire in their home if they see smoke or feel a warm door. The goal is to educate children and parents on the importance of E.D.I.T.H. (Exit Drills In The Home) and prepare them to conduct drills at home. It shows trainees how to feel a door for heat, block smoke with a pillow or towel, and then evacuate to safety using the window and escape ladder. Additional props include a smoking outlet and air conditioner to simulate electrical fire hazards. Sound, smoke, fire effects, an interactive 9-1-1 phone, and an automatic smoke detector create an authentic emergency scene.
The second scenario is an industrial emergency designed to train employees to respond to a fire in the workplace. An electrical box shorts, causing sparks to ignite the adjacent parts washer. The parts washer creates a hot, smoky fire that ignites the nearby trashcan, resulting in a full-scale industrial emergency. The trainee will train on correctly and safely using a fire extinguisher. The industrial scenario can be as simple or complex as you need. It can include numerous industrial elements that may become hazardous to a worker.
