Angus Fire and The Fire Service College has reached an agreement that will see Angus Fire’s CoolFire system being used by the College to deliver ‘state of the art’ training.
The agreement with Angus Fire allows the College to utilise CoolFire, a high pressure cutting and extinguisher technology, for training delivery. CoolFire cuts through virtually any building materials using a mixture of cutting abrasive and water to gain access to the fire without introducing oxygen into it. Once CoolFire has cut through the building it creates a water mist inside, suppressing and reducing the fire, cooling and condensing fire gases and quickly reducing the temperature to allow safe entry. This technology has been specifically developed to meet firefighters’ varied needs, most importantly to make their job considerably safer by enabling external attack, eliminating the risk of back draught and to increasing firefighting performance.
