Live Fire Training

GMT received an urgent call from FDC Construction, who were in the midst of building a new building at Macquarie University.

As part of an onsite audit, a number of Contractors required urgent First Fire Attack procedure training for WHS compliance.

Within 24hrs GMT was on site and delivered 3 x sessions of theory and practical live fire training sessions which covered;

  • Human behaviour in emergencies.
  • Fire and smoke characteristics and dynamics.
  • Safe work practices before using portable fire equipment.
  • Identify types of portable firefighting equipment.
  • Safe operation of portable firefighting equipment.

GMT is equipped with a certified hot fire system which safely simulates a small to medium sized gas fire. This system allows the trainee to experience a live hot fire event and actively demonstrate their knowledge on First Fire Attack procedures including using a fire extinguisher to quell the flames.

GMT trained over 70 contractors that day and all were successful in safely using and operating a portable fire extinguisher.  Each attendant received their Certificate of Attainment for completion of the training.
