  • At the Danish National College the tactical training of fire officers takes place in a model town, scale 1:100, which is used both directly and in connection with an ITV-system. The model town has been built up like a typical Danish community of medium size with an old city center, industrial and residential areas and rural areas with small towns and villages. The training program involves 3 steps. The courses start with a series of tactical situations which the students discuss in groups of 4--65 persons. The next step is tactical exercises, and now the time factor is taken intomore » consideration. The third step is Combined Operations. These exercises are carried out exactly the same way as full-scale exercises. The use of the model town presents some problems, since the whole area can be viewed at one time. To avoid this disadvantage a special technique has been developed. A very small camera drives through the streets of the model town. The lens is placed at a height corresponding to a man`s eye-level. The camera is connected to a TV monitor and the screen shows the same picture as a man walking in the street would observe.« less
  • Management support necessary for the successful organization and training of a fire brigade is outlined. Brigade staffing is discussed and elements of the training program are outlined. The importance of a complete emergency plan is also discussed.
  • Fire is an important natural and anthropogenic factor in the dynamics of the boreal forest system. The ecological and environmental impacts of boreal fires depend on fire weather, fuel availability, fire behavior and history of sand development (frequency and size of fires and other biotic and abiotic disturbances, influence of surrounding landscape on successional developments). About 70% of the global boreal forest is in Eurasia, almost all of it in the Russian Federation. It is estimated that in years with high fire danger up to ca. 10 million ha of forest and other land in the Russian Federation are affectedmore » by fire. The demand for reliable information on the role of natural and anthropogenic fire and the necessity to develop adequate fire management systems is basically due to globally increasing concerns about (1) impacts of boreal wildfires on atmosphere and climate, (2) changing utilization and ecologically destructive practices in boreal forestry, and (3) possible consequences of global climate change on the boreal forest system.« less
  • Over a 12 month period, a fire PRA was developed for a DOE facility using the NUREG/CR-6850 EPRI/NRC fire PRA methodology. The fire PRA modeling included calculation of fire severity factors (SFs) and fire non-suppression probabilities (PNS) for each safe shutdown (SSD) component considered in the fire PRA model. The SFs were developed by performing detailed fire modeling through a combination of CFAST fire zone model calculations and Latin Hypercube Sampling (LHS). Component damage times and automatic fire suppression system actuation times calculated in the CFAST LHS analyses were then input to a time-dependent model of fire non-suppression probability. Themore » fire non-suppression probability model is based on the modeling approach outlined in NUREG/CR-6850 and is supplemented with plant specific data. This paper presents the methodology used in the DOE facility fire PRA for modeling fire-induced SSD component failures and includes discussions of modeling techniques for: • Development of time-dependent fire heat release rate profiles (required as input to CFAST), • Calculation of fire severity factors based on CFAST detailed fire modeling, and • Calculation of fire non-suppression probabilities.« less
