Specifications include, but are not limited to: The Georgia Fire Academy (GFA) Division of the Georgia Public Safety Training Center (GPSTC) desires to have a custom built trailer to conduct Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) training at remote sites. SCBA confidence trainer is designed to provide realistic conditions for SCBA confined space training for municipal, industrial, airport and marine structural firefighting crews. The unit is completely self-sufficient with an onboard control room and generator. The maze is completely modular, allowing rapid reconfiguration of independent confined space areas. Trailer must contain multi-level changeable maze options with emergency access to all portions and be able to support training such as, restrictive passage, lost/disoriented firefighter, and search techniques. It must be able to provide a restricted visibility environment via low light and smoke/fog machine and the ability to be transported with a F450 type vehicle with a receiver type bumper hitch. An important aspect of firefighting operations is the ability to enter a dark, smoke filled environment to conduct search and rescue or firefighting operations. Individual confidence is one of the leading factors in reducing firefighter air consumption while using SCBA, but the confidence gained in initial training can degrade over time. The SCBA Confidence Trailer will be a self-contained maze that includes multiple levels and allows firefighters to move through tubes, to ascend and descend through ceiling/floor hatches, to navigate low profile openings, and more. Training is conducted in a dark, smoke-filled environment. While students are in the maze, they are in direct contact with an instructor in a control room who is monitoring their every move. • Custom Enclosed Tag Trailer o 24' L x 8.5’ W x 8.5' H o deck-over configuration o structural aluminum trailer frame and trim o 10,000 lb.
