HANDS-ON EMERGENCY RESPONSE TRAINING
Meet OSHA and Joint Commission standards by giving your staff hands-on R.A.C.E. training.
Your employees may be able to recite the R.A.C.E. acronym, but can they actually follow the steps when a fire occurs?
The R.A.C.E. Station includes a pull station, strobe light, smoke detector, annunciator, and an interactive 9-1-1 phone that allow your staff to practice responding to an emergency from the moment they notice a fire. Teach the R.A.C.E. method (Rescue, Alert, Confine, Extinguish) to ensure that your employees are prepared to make good decisions in an emergency.
In a quickly growing incipient stage fire, every second counts. When faced with the sensory overload of a fire, the blazing flames, thick smoke, and heat can impair a person’s ability to think quickly and rationally. To properly respond to a fire, a person must be able to make a series of decisions in only seconds – Can I confine the fire? Are
there other people in the area that need to be rescued? Can I extinguish the fire? Where is the extinguisher? How do I alert others in the building?
The R.A.C.E. Station recreates that stressful environment and allows trainees to practice and memorize the correct response so that they can make good decisions based on their observations should the real thing occur. Upon discovery of the simulated fire, trainees can put their knowledge of R.A.C.E. to the test by alerting with the 9-1-1 phone and/or pull station before retrieving the extinguisher to put out the flames.
Arm your employees with the skills they need to face incipient stage fire emergencies to save lives and protect property.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Realistic Training – By including sound, smoke, and training extinguishers, trainees will be exposed to the same conditions they will face in a real fire emergency.
Frequent Training – Conduct training as often as necessary to make sure new employees are compliant with education standards. Quickly and easily refresh veteran employees’ hands-on skills.
Train Anywhere In Your Workplace – Reduce employee time away from the job by training them in the very places they will be tasked with protecting in an emergency.
Effective Training – Hands-on training teaches muscle memory that gives trainees the ability to respond and make decisions quickly during a real emergency.
Comprehensive Training – Prepare your community with the skills they need to make good decisions in the event of an incipient stage fire from the moment they see it.
Transportable Training – The R.A.C.E. Station is lightweight and designed to be transported easily between training locations. Place the R.A.C.E. Station where the pull stations and extinguisher hangers are actually located in your building.
HOW IT WORKS
The R.A.C.E. Station is designed to work seamlessly with the BullsEye Digital Fire Extinguisher Training System. The two systems communicate wirelessly to make your training evolutions as close to the real thing as possible.
The tablet control makes it simple to customize your training evolution. Choose the class of fire, then select which parts of the R.A.C.E. Station the trainee must use and in what order. The tablet records if the trainee responds using the correct R.A.C.E. method and how long it takes them to complete each step of the response plan. Scenarios can be tailored to your location or department’s specific response plan.
The R.A.C.E. Station can be used in conjunction with the BullsEye, live-fire extinguisher training, or as a standalone unit.
