Abstract:

The U. S. Navy has contracted to provide the fire simulators and control system to be used in the Advanced Fire Fighter Simulator 19F1. The simulator was designed by the Naval Training Equipment Center for use in Naval fire-fighting training activities. A Phase I prototype trainer has been installed and is undergoing final testing. The 19F1 will simulate Class A, B, and C fires under different, but controlled, conditions in a training environment resembling shipboard conditions. The simulator must meet ambient air quality standards for combustion products of burning fuel, byproducts from heating fire-extinguishing agents, and artificially generated smoke and water pollution-control requirements for industrial discharges of expended extinguishing agents. In addition, it must provide a working environment free of hazards such as potentially toxic-extinguishing agents and their byproducts, smoke, or an oxygen-deficient atmosphere. This report provides the results of a preliminary assessment of the environmental, health and safety acceptability of the trainer, and contains recommendations for moderating the deficiencies found.
