NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The North Myrtle Beach Department of Public Safety recently purchased a training system to expand training grounds and improve operations for oceanfront homes.
The system is called the BullEx Digital Fire Attack Training System. The city paid $14,280 for the BullEx Digital Fire Attack Training System. It uses simulated smoke, and fire conditions that are not harsh enough to harm a building. Before the purchase of the new digital training, fire and smoke training in North Myrtle Beach was limited to certain locations.
BullEx launched the Attack Digital Fire Training System in 2013 and it was tested for two years before being introduced for sale. It is the first digital training system that utilizes a hose line. The training system includes a portable stand that allows instructors to conduct training at any location, a waterproof panel that uses five infrared sensors, digital flames, smoke generation and sound effects to provide an interactive training experience. The panel can be hit with any hose line in a department's training arsenal. An infinite number of panels can be wirelessly linked together to allow the fire to grow and spread.
