Since a few years there is a quite intensive and successful Compartment Fire Behavior Training program in Belgium. The aim of the program is to offer strategy and tactics for safer interior firefighting in modern buildings. For Belgium the man behind the scenes is Karel Lambert with CFBT-BE. He has quite an impressive website with lots of information, articles,... In short, plenty of reading for quite some evenings.
CFBT-BE is part of a larger community. Around the world you can find CFBT programs and organizations. As an example: the patch is based on a picture taken from John McDonough. He is demonstrating a gas cooling technique during an international CFBT training in Belgium organized by CFBT-BE. John is a internationally recognized trainer for Compartment Fire Behavior Trainings.
Luc Van Ussel, a firefighter from the Brussel fire department designed the patch. He mirrored the picture from John (see below) to have the result above.
To offer a reward and recognition to all those who are working as an instructor within the CFBT-BE program or those who followed a CFBT-BE training (International 3D Firefighting,...) CFBT-BE had a patch designed.
The patch cost is 5 euro's including delivery by mail. To apply for and order a patch you should go to this page. You can order your patch, but before you will get instructions for payment CFBT-BE will have to approve your order. You will then receive further instructions.
