• Fire-fighting foams: fluor-free foam concentrates, C6 foam concentrates, legislation and good practice

• Incident scenarios at atmospheric tanks and bunded areas

• Lessons learned

• Demos of fire-fighting response with fixed foam systems

• Practical training.

The practical training will include training with an on-site tank fire; fire in a bunded area; on-site tank fire; hydrocarbon jet fires; and a large-scale ethanol pool fire.
