2005 FireFlash Mobile Training Unit

The Grand Forks Fire Department is selling a 53’ FireBlast training simulator that was built for the department in 2005. The training simulator is operational and was test-fired this past week. The department has built a new class “A” training burn facility and this trainer is no longer needed. This mobile fire training simulator has the ability to train departments that do not have the facilities or the ability to acquire a structure for training. Departments can arrange for the best location to have joint controlled live fire training with the two (2) gas-fired props and one (1) flashover prop.

The portable self-contained Fireflash Series is a fire training unit that provides over 416 square feet of interior training space with 744 square feet of total training space. This space includes a generator, fuel source, three (3) burners including flashover/rollover, a smoke system, movable panels, ventilation pitched roof with safety railings, chop hatch, basement access, second-story enclosed room, and an equipment room on a portable transport trailer with exterior staircases.

The unit provides a fuel source, generator or power supply, operating equipment, required safety components, and smoke distribution system. The unit utilizes Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) in the vapor state as the fuel source.

The trailer was used heavily for several years and served several departments. Since that time, the Fireflash has not been used much. As you can see from the pictures and the video attached, the simulator was fired up and one prop did not work. The flame sensor needed to be cleaned and when lit, it operated. This trailer can be configured in many different ways and with many different options. This training simulator is 15 years old, there is some corrosion that is shown in the pictures, a broken emergency stop button that is still functional, and there are some of the trim and decals peeling. The large Grand Forks Fire Department logo must be removed by the purchaser. The last D.O.T inspection was in 2016.

The unit comes with the 12kw Onan generator model# 12.5HDCAB11506D, transfer switch, propane tank, air compressor, and everything you see in the pictures. The buyer is responsible for the inspection, transportation, and contacting FireBlast Global to have the unit programmed to your configuration including removing old user passwords.
