We had a visit from Fabian Wee last week. Fabian works at Tecsen Technologies, FireWare’s dealer in, for example, Malaysia and Indonesia. The aim of the visit was to share knowledge and information about realistic staging. It was great that Laurence and Linda from Ruth Lee in Wales also participated for a few days. An international group which inspires each other to seeing how training and educating can be done in an even more fun and realistic manner!
We were guests at Hoorn Fire Station during one of the days. In addition to visiting a “typically Dutch fire station”, the visit was also organised to see “ram de vlam” (tame the flame). The water accidents cart was a new concept to Fabian and one he was certainly very enthusiastic about! We were guests at ACM training in Elburg later that same day. Visitors could see a typically Dutch Ambulance Station here, but naturally also the various different mobile and modular training concepts.
Weert Fire Station also allowed us to take a look behind the scenes, in addition to all the necessary product and staging training at FireWare. A modern, large fire station, where Fabian in particular was very impressed by what he saw. We subsequently went to VeTraNed to see their large iPad controlled installation. The trip concluded with FireWare’s logistics partner, in order to see how all the logistic processes are organised. Fabian then returned to Malaysia, after a beautiful walk through the Schoorl dunes, in order to share his experiences back home.
We would like to thank everyone for their hospitality, openness and the fantastic stories! After a week like that you do realise things aren’t all that bad for us here in the Netherlands….
