The Alabama Fire College is proud to include three Mobile Fire Trainers in our training fleet. The purpose of the Mobile Fire Trainer is to provide fire suppression training at any location in Alabama while allowing a trained staff member to moderate the safety elements of the live fire training scenario.
Mobile Fire Suppression Training
Emergency Vehicle Driver Simulation Trainer is intended to focus on the behavioral aspect of learning. These simulated driving scenarios provide students a safe, no-fault environment in which to conduct driver training. This training is designed to increase situational awareness of response hazards and will allow facilitators to monitor driver behaviors, performance, and actions.
Mobile Unit: Fire Apparatus Operator Driver Simulator
The Confined Space Mobile Training Unit allows departments to apply, analyze, and evaluate firefighter confined space and search and rescue skills in safe and controlled environment. The 40′ unit has the ability to obscure vision through the use of water-based fog and has entanglement panels, collapse panels, and an audio-video monitoring system. Firefighters may have to apply advanced SCBA techniques in order to navigate segments of the course which are extremely restricted.
The four story Mobile Drill Tower provides the ability for departments to conduct operations related to ground ladders, search and rescue, standpipes and sprinklers, high rise, high angle, rappelling, and confined space. This unit can be used for pumper, aerial, mobile water supply, or rescue technician skills training and testing. The prop features internal and external lighting, a sprinkler system, standpipe connections, anchor points for rope skills, bailouts, and restricted openings for confined space training.
The Propane Emergency Simulator allows departments to plan for and practice common propane emergencies encountered at structure fires. Responders learn how to mitigate the impact of radiant heat and direct flame impingement on a residential propane storage tank. Students will be exposed to various safety features of propane storage tanks.
The side-by-side sprinkler prop allows us to compare and contrast the differences between sprinklered and nonsprinklered rooms. The acquisition of this trailer was made possible by a partnership between the National Fire Sprinkler Association, the Alabama State Fire Marshal’s Office, the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute, Common Voices, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, and the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition. With this mobile prop, we will provide valuable education to the public regarding the advantages of installation and operation of fire sprinkler systems.

This full size MC 306 Hazardous Materials Mobile Training Unit will allow departments to practice confinement, containment, mitigation, and suppression techniques associated with hazardous materials incidents. The prop has leak panels and various fire effects that can be utilized to prepare your department’s hazardous materials responders.
Note: Certain features of the unit may not be used in all areas due to the requirements to make them function correctly and safely.
