2EXCEL ENGINEERING’S FIRE CREW TRAINING

Well done to the first 8-out-of-24 of our employees who took part in a Fire Crew Training exercise at Southampton Airport. The training lasted a full day and consisted of a brief classroom session, hose drills and moving as a team.

The team spent the morning doing simulated exercises using Echo Four’s aircraft fire simulator. The exercises included attending an aircraft with suspected hot brakes, which then escalated into a landing gear fire. The afternoon comprised of tackling a simulated engine fire from a vehicle monitor. This culminated in a full deployment, where starting from an on vehicle position, the monitor initially knocked back an engine fire, before two teams egressed to move in and deal with a gear fire using branch lines.

At 2Excel Engineering, we’re committed to safety, staff training and upskilling our workforce. The course results in a certification and we look forward to sending the remaining two groups to complete this training. You can find out more about our expertise here.

Thank you Echo Four and Southampton Airport for hosting us.
