Williams Xtreme Fire Training School to launch in the Asia Pacfic

Published:  09 November, 2016

Williams Fire & Hazard Control is bringing its Xtreme Industrial Fire & Hazard Training School to the Asia Pacific Region following a successful run in the USA and EMEA regions. 

The four-day course is designed to offer a comprehensive hands-on learning experience for those involved in operational industrial fire response at on-shore petroleum, oil and gas facilities, and has been designed to benefit emergency response specialists and HSE managers. It will take place from 16-19 January 2017 at the NPC training facility in Rayong, Thailand.

Attendees will have the chance to learn from the experience of the Williams’ rapid response team, which has fought more than 200 of the industry’s most threatening flammable liquid fires over the last 34 years. The training school also represents an opportunity for participants to discuss best practice with their peers from across the industry.

The course covers the latest methodologies and fire behaviour using real-life case studies, and live fire exercises will enable participants to tackle real pressure-fed, hydrocarbon fuel, combined elevated tank and bund fires.

The course includes both field training and classroom elements. The field training will suit those directly involved in operational roles, such as fire officers and municipal fire departments, while the classroom course is ideal for specifying engineers, safety consultants, corporate safety specialists, chief fire officers, and CEOs.

Hands-on experience with the latest product innovations from Williams is also included in the course, such as the Ambassador 2X6 Gun Trailer, capable of discharge flow rates of between 2,000 and 6,000gpm. Williams is the only global company that responds to emergencies with its own hardware and specially formulated foam concentrate, enabling participants to see the results of the learned foam chemistry first hand.

‘When faced with fires at petroleum, oil or gas facilities, it is the experience that makes the difference and this course is the perfect opportunity to gain that experience in a safe environment,’ said Chauncey Naylor, director for training and emergency response operations at Williams.

‘Everything we do is governed by in-depth knowledge, whether it be designing new products, writing methodology or formulating new foam, and we want to impart this knowledge on to as many people in the industry as possible.’

The course will be delivered in English only, so all students should have a good understanding of both written and spoken English.
