March 2015. Gas detection in firefigter training center
The Fire Services Training School in Hong Kong provides training for all firefighting recruits in the service. A new facility for this school has recently been inaugurated, making it one of the most complete firefighting training complexes anywhere.
The new FSTS, covering an area of 158,000 square meters, includes outdoor and indoor simulation training facilities for various complex and large-scale emergency scenarios to better equip fire services trainees with fire-fighting and rescue techniques. There are simulators covering seven types of emergency incidents related to buildings, transport, marine and water, gas, aircraft, hazardous materials and structural collapse. There is also a driving training block.
These installations are protected by the DURTEX, DURTOX and DIREX range of toxic and explosive gas detectors, designed and manufactured by DURAN ELECTRONICA.
