Supress Urban Fire
« on: April 06, 2006, 01:40:02 PM »
Hi all..

After completing CFB early last year, we were informed of the intentions to have further training in modules of SUF (Which is what CFB is a module from).

These included things like advanced door tactics (where instead of starting in the cell, we would be positioned outside, and have to open the door and enter the cell, fighting the gasses etc back..)

Does any-body know if further training in such areas is going to be developed / continued?  (Any CFS instructors that might know the answers)...

EG. Are we going to get to finish the SUF course ?  Instead of just pulling the CFB module out of it?

Many thanks.

SUF = Supress Urban Fire.. You probably wouldn't have heard of it without participating in Compartment Fire Behaviour Course.

Haven't heard that..

Am more interested however in finding out about further training on the lines of CFB, which is a module out of SUF.

Sorry I can't be of real help, but I can say that I've heard that too strikeathird... should be a great course if they get it going...
I believe the new level 3 is scheduled for 2008, and once that is out, on completion you will have a cert 4 in fire fighting (or public safety?)

Without any background knowledge or seeing the unit of training mix, I think it's more likey that people will have a great start at either Cert 2 or 3. Cert 4 is Fire Fighting Supervision not operations... :-)

Well with Brett Pollini (sp) now gone, who knows how CFB of SUF sill be headed in the future...


Im guessing no one has heard anymore about the proposed training in SUF, incorperating and further enhancing skills learnt in CFB .. ?

It is actually planned at some stage to implement 3 stages of BA
1. BA Wearer
2. Compartment Fire Behaviour
3. Advanced Ventilation Techniques
