Hazmat operations are high stakes events where the lives of responders and others are often on the line.

Industrial Fire

Industrial fires often involve several factors that residential fires don’t, such as a large volume of flammable chemicals, equipment that explodes when it overheats, and storage areas that contain combustible materials. That is why it is important to get our industrial firefighter training DVDs if you plan to fight fire in the industrial sector. Topics for training include: industrial fire control, personal protective equipment, access & forcible entry, and industrial water supply.

A pumping apparatus is used for pumping water and other fire suppressants. The person who operates the pumping apparatus plays a crucial role in extinguishing

fires and must train in each aspect of the equipment’s operation. Firefighters Bookstore has training DVDs that focus on operating fire pumps, apparatus inspection and maintenance, water shuttle and relay pumping, and positioning apparatus.

Using our DVDs, you can focus on the following aspects of aerial apparatus operation, among others: positioning, stabilization, telescoping, and driving. The aerial apparatus operator is a crucial link in the firefighting chain.
