Foam Training

Firefighting Foam and Emergency Planning School

Centro Jovellanos, Asturias, Spain
8-12 May 2017 | 11-15 September 2017
Hands on training packed with theory and real fire!

Study credible scenarios, mitigation strategies and scenario specific emergency response planning – then put your learning into practice.
In association with
Angus Fire

Who should attend?

  • Refinery, petrochemical plant fire chiefs and brigade members
  • Municipal fire officers
  • Company safety and fire personnel responsible for flammable liquid fire fighting
  • Tank farm fire personnel
  • Insurance company personnel involved with protecting storage and process/li>
  • Fire engineers


The course will be run with CFB Risk Management, who will provide a UK Fire & Rescue Officer to manage the Emergency Planning training as well as the Fire Ground Control & Command.


Angus Fire and CFB Risk Management will cover foam firefighting and emergency planning as the two main
objectives of the course, which will be a blend of theory and practice and heavily focussed on the overall
implications of tank fire fighting. This will include an in-depth understanding of the risk and its manifestation, the
importance of foam selection, designing and specifying foam fire systems, including tank systems.

The practical training will include real fires with real fuels, across a number of training modules. Some of the
training will involve BA work and a qualification or training in BA would be essential. The BA aspect is optional and
is therefore not required to participate. At the end of the school the delegates will have improved their firefighting
technique, increased their understanding of the capabilities of the foam and foam equipment and gained greater
confidence in fighting flammable liquid fires.

Location & Facilities

The course will be held at the fire training school at Centro Jovellanos in Asturias, Spain. The school will provide
full logistical support for the course, including fuel, fire test modules, some of the site labour, the PPE and the BA.
Delegates will also be heavily involved in test ground training and work, for which they may bring their own fire
boots and helmet if preferred. For further details of the course location, go to:

Case Studies

Included in the training package will be some case studies on major tank scenarios and an interactive desktop
exercise focussed on emergency planning training; risk assessments linked to the protection of specific assets,
specifying foam engineering solutions.

Course Format

The school will commence on Monday and is intended to be interactive and delegates will be encouraged to
contribute to discussions as the event evolves. There will also be some more formal question and answer


The course will attract a predetermined 30 x CPD hours and a course certificate will be awarded on completion.
