Choose Advanced Fire Extinguisher Training
United Fire has invested in one of the best fire training systems possible created by the company Bullex. Because every fire situation is different, Bullex allows you to create realistic training scenarios in any environment. The self-contained system can be safely operated in the actual setting where workers or residents may encounter a hazard. It is ideally suited for training indoors, on marine vessels, or within other environments where open flames are not possible.
The Bullex HotShot utilizes the same advanced sensor technology as the BullEx Intelligent Training System™, which is now used for extinguisher training worldwide. HotShot can simulate Class A, B, and C fires at four different difficulty levels. The digital flames respond only to the actions of the trainee, and the system measures how well the user extinguishes the flames.
