New Training Prop to Enhance Your Building Construction Classes

The Maine Fire Service Institute received a wood products training display case.  The display case was made possible as part of the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) grant. The training prop was given to Director Guindon through the assistance of former California State Fire Marshal, Ron Colman.

The display cases provide industry product samples that will be used to enhance the building construction curriculums. The display case is supported by the following web-site; and is an excellent training aid insofar as engineered wood products that are commonly found in new construction today as well as traditional wood frame construction.

New Portable Car Fire Training Prop Available

The Maine Fire Service Institute is happy to announce that the Portable Car Fire Training Prop is available for scheduling. Please click here for the  Car Prop Schedule 2015 The portable car fire training is designed to simulate live fire conditions without the environmental and logistical challenges of using old cars for vehicle fire training. The unit is a great tool for improving team work and hose line advance skills. MFSI will provide 2 Fire Instructors for the training session when scheduled. Fire Department requesting the unit will be required to fill and top off the propane tanks and smoke machine fluid at the completion of the training delivery. Click here to reserve the unit. In order to ensure proper set-up and delivery of the unit and scheduling of instructors, please reserve the unit 30 days in advance of the training event.

NOTE: The Car Fire Prop has been taken out of service for the winter season.  This year was very successful with over 20 field deployments that resulted in the training of well over 250 of Maine Fire Fighters.  If you are interested in obtaining the Car Fire Prop please see our County schedule here on our website
