Il corso antincedio avanzato per squadre di emergenza è strutturato per fornire un addestramento antincendio avanzato per il personale impiegato nella squadra di emergenza.
Il corso è composto da un parte teorica e da un addestramento pratico durante i quali ai corsisti sarà richiesto di dimostrare il loro livello di comprensione dei contenuti del programma di addestramento.

Theoretical Aspects


  • Fire triangle
  • Fuels and their characteristics
  • Flashpoint temperature, ignition temperature, flammable range
  • Activation energy: examples of ignition sources
  • Combustion products: light, heath, smoke, combustion gases
  • Reference to the products of combustion (CO- CO2 ) and their effects on men
  • Fuel classification
  • Extinguishing agents and their characteristics
  • Intervention potentialities in relations to the available means
  • Examination of different emergency situations




  • Specific fire prevention measures
  • Main precautions to prevent fires:
  • Importance of work environment control
  • Importance of checks and measures to prevent fires


Active and passive protection


  • Fixed or movable installations
  • Detection: smoke, heath and light detectors
  • Compartmentalization
  • Escape routes
  • Materials reaction to fire


Emergency Plan


  • Procedures to be adopted when a fire is discovered
  • Procedures to be adopted in case of alert
  • Evacuation procedures
  • Call for emergency services
  • Collaboration with the fire service in case of intervention


Personal Protective Equipment


  • Protection devices and use
  • Protective clothing
  • Airway protection:
  • Air composition and negative consequences of a low presence of oxygen
  • Breathable air
  • Anti-gas masks, dust masks, filters choice, limitations, breathing apparatus
  • Description, autonomy and use of air-injection breathing apparatus.
  • Head, face, eyes and hands protection


Practical session


  • Fire extinction with powder extinguisher on a 4.5 sqm rectangular tank
  • Fire extinction with powder extinguisher on a 9 sqm circular tank
  • Fire extinction with CO2  extinguisher on an electric box in a closed environment
  • Extinction of a pressurized liquid (inclined plane) with powder extinguisher
  • Extinction of a pressurized liquid (flange coupling) with powder extinguisher
  • Intervention simulations with the emergency team
  • Fire extinction on a circular tank and leakage from flange coupling with powder extinguisher and water fog
  • Test in training tank to check claustrophobia
  • Practical intervention in a closed environment filled with non-toxic smoke to check the correct use of respiratory protective devices, stressing situations, specific sounds: noise, cries, explosions (supervision and monitoring through infrared cameras)
  • Practical sessions with self-protector for air optimization through:
  • Conveyor belt (tapis roulant)
  • Multi-speed ladder
  • dynamometer
  • Practical session (rescue simulation) in a multi-storey building with smoke and heat
  • Intervention in case of under pressure gas leak
  • Fire extinction on a road tanker
  • Fire extinction of leak from a “Rack” placed at more than 4meter height, with powder extinguisher and water fog (leak on a footbridge at the basis of the Rack)
  • How a high and medium-expansion foam system works
  • Extinction of 100 sqm fires with foam agents
  • Fire tunnel crossing with the use of aluminized and thermoreflective suits
