Emergency intervention on vehicles (IUV) is today, and even more so tomorrow, is a real challenge for emergency services. In the context of interventions for traffic accidents or vehicle fires, fire brigades must adapt their techniques and equipment.
Conferences, extrication workshops, car fire tests (electric cars, LNG trucks…), extrication tests and demonstrations are on the program for this event.
New Energy Sources (electric, hybrid, gas) and New Technologies (airbags, reinforcements, glazing, etc.) are
important developments in the "vehicle" sector.
The SDIS 86, aware of these challenges, has initiated a proactive approach since 2005, in partnership
with automobile manufacturers and manufacturers of road rescue equipment.
An intervention Protocol has been drawn up and training courses are given at the Vienna Fire Training Center. In parallel to this approach, SDIS 86, in partnership with SDIS44, the National School of Fire Brigade
Officers and the Fédération nationale des sapeurs-pompiers de France, the Directorate General of Civil Security and Crisis Management, the International Fire Technical Committee and the support of Weber-Rescue Systems and Renault, organized technical days on its site at the training center in 2014 and 2016.
At the last edition, nearly 450 people (participants, exhibitors, speakers, etc.) from 58 French departments and 14 different countries were present to attend the conferences, workshops and scheduled trials.
In view of the success of these technical days, SDIS 86 has decided to renew the organization of this international event and would be happy to count you among its participants.
These Technical Days are realized through the help of their partnership with Renault and Weber Rescue.
