QFES Live Fire Campus

Students from UQ Fire had the opportunity of getting a glance of to the conditions under which fire fighters operate. During a visit to QFES’ Wythe Island facilities, a group of PhD, Masters, and visiting students geared up in full protective equipment. Students were accompanied by expert fire fighter trainers into a container in which the conditions of a compartment fire are reproduced.

This demonstration is just one of the many demonstrations and training which all fire fighters recruits have to face and get familiar with, before joining active operations. For us, this was a unique opportunity to understand fire beyond the laboratory and the theory and will surely help their research.
