Respiratory protection training (RPT) facilities for all requirements

In the pyrodrome building there are two respiratory protection training facilities, namely RPT facilities 1 and 2. RPT facility 1 is used primarily for basic training and RPT facility 2 for further training in the use of respiratory protection (breathing) equipment. Both are available to all fire brigades with individual training programmes and collectively make comprehensive RP training possible.
 
Furthermore, we offer a large number of respiratory protection courses on and in the site.

RPT facility 1

Apart from basic training, RPT facility 1 is also very good for individually prepared training programmes for retained and full-time fire brigades. The physical condition of RP equipment carriers can be checked in the fitness area, with the assistance of an endless ladder, demolition hammer, treadmill and bicycle. For basic training, a system is available with many crawling and running levels, as well as various obstacles. The training tank stretches students even further with demanding tank rescue scenarios. This and other training items can be integrated into exercises at will, with a free choice of the level of difficulty. The system can be plunged into complete darkness and/or filled with smoke. Trainees can be properly monitored at all times from the control centre, thanks to infra-red cameras.

RPT facility 2

RPT facility 2 is intended for advanced RP training. The training options are considerably more intensive and versatile than in RPT facility 1. Gas and liquid pipework systems represent a sophisticated industrial set-up and can be integrated into training exercises at will. The facility is also deliberately set up for instruction in communications, watch leadership and supervision.

External respiratory protection course

On the generously-proportioned ifa outdoor site, there are many opportunities for setting up respiratory protection courses from the simplest to the most demanding.
 
Particularly challenging is the permanent respiratory protection course in an underground pipe system: many entrance and exit possibilities, varying pipe cross-sections, branches, an option for filling with smoke and much more besides place demands on and encourage trainees.
