URBAN SEARCH & RESCUE (USAR) TRAINING
Urban search and rescue is a “multi-hazard” discipline. It covers a variety of emergencies and disasters, including earthquakes, storms and tornadoes, floods, dam failures, technological accidents, terrorist activities and hazardous materials releases -- and that can make it difficult to prepare. Your training alone needs to allow for the full range of scenarios your firefighters should be prepared to face.
LION Urban Search and Rescue training provides challenging and variable team training exercises for firefighters of all skill levels. USAR training scenarios include working in confined spaces, simulated water and gas leaks, extrications, SCBA training, working with heights, multi-level collapsed building, technical sear and shoring, and breaking and breaching skills.
Getting the people out when a building collapses is always going to be a challenge, but with the right training your team will be better able to respond quickly and effectively.
Natural disasters can wreak havoc on your community. They destroy buildings and topple structures. You might not be able to fight Mother Nature, but you can train for how to respond to weather-related emergencies.
Prepare to handle hazardous materials properly and quickly with training props that simulate the challenges you will face in a spill.

Being able to train with realistic flames can make a big difference in helping new firefighters acclimate to the amber glow and helping teams to train on fire suppression techniques. LION is here to help with fire technologies to suit every need.
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.
"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."
