STRUCTURAL FIREFIGHTER TRAINING
The area your department is responsible for protecting is made up of many different kinds of structures. We can design, build and outfit a wide range of props to simulate the challenges you will face answering calls to residential structures.
The firefighting training you provide your crew is only as effective as the scenarios you can offer. Make sure that you can give your team the most realistic props possible with LION.
BALLOON FRAME FIRES
LION provides all the tools necessary to train both new and advanced firefighters on sizing up structures, initial fire attack, fire behavior, ventilation, water supply, hose stream application, search and rescue, firefighter survival, and FAST.
ROOM & CONTENTS FIRES
While training towers come to mind most frequently when discussing structural firefighting, LION has designed mobile units and containers to accomplish the same training objectives. Fires can include backdrafts, flashovers, rollovers, furniture fires such as couch and bed fires, and computer fires.
LION is capable of designing, constructing, and outfitting a wide range of typical structures. Past projects include buildings designed to represent a suburban home, an urban apartment complex, an office park and even commercial buildings.

Realistic, self-generating flames respond to your trainees' efforts and are tough enough to handle getting smacked with a hose line in the process. Use our digital fire technology to train where live fire isn’t a possibility.
Propane and natural gas fires produce real heat and smoke for a training experience that closely models real-life conditions – and it’s as safe as fire can be. Configure our gas-based fires to simulate almost any fire behavior.
Smart Class A Fire Technology features dual combustion technology to create fire using both gas and wood to allow firefighters to controllably burn real wood in their training scenarios without worrying about the environmental effects.
"Why LION? I have interacted with firefighter survival equipment manufacturers for over four decades, but I haven't met any that come close to LION with their sincere and proven interest in understanding (aka LISTENING) to what we, firefighters, genuinely need. Their endless pursuit to listen to the "voices of firefighters" and then utilizing the latest proven firefighting research results in bunker gear that supports us in best taking care of those who need us, as well as each other. From their demonstrated commitment in providing us with what we genuinely need to do the job, to their full and hands on involvement (in research and fiscal support) with the battle to reduce firefighter cancer, LION isn't just words- they are proven action with impressive results."
Billy Goldfeder | Deputy Fire Chief Loveland-Symmes Fire Department
"Recently, the Baton Rouge Fire Department accepted delivery of the ITS Xtreme fire extinguisher training prop and we have hit the ground running. We have trained over 200 people in the proper use of a fire extinguisher in approximately 6 weeks. This new technology is leaps and bounds better and more efficient than the old training method of the burn pan and carbon dioxide extinguishers. We are able to take full advantage of the ability to recharge the extinguishers onsite, thereby allowing us to reach more people effectively. This unit is exponentially easier to setup, use and maintain than previous methods."
Clint L. Sanchez | Baton Rouge Fire Department
"When you combine ease of use, quick set up and tear down time, actual training time, and SAFETY of this training system, there is nothing out there comparable."
George Ostrom | Safety Asst, AMRI Global
"The customer service has been awesome! I did have a problem with one of the fire extinguishers when it was first delivered. I made one phone call and spoke with a technician who immediately sent out a brand new extinguisher. They have contacted me often to make sure that I was completely satisfied and wasn’t having any further problems. It’s not too often that you can not only get a great product, but also great service. I would highly recommend it to others."

"I have trained about 125 employees for one company, with great success. The system is very easy to set up, as well as to operate."
Pat Patterson | President LAAP, Inc.
"Thanks to [LION], we have directly cut over $1,000 annually from our contracted fire training and since we have been able to easily train staff, the system has paid for itself; given the cost of contracting out this training to the number of staff we trained ourselves."
