Fire Marshal Training focuses on the correct use of fire extinguishers provided on the stages. It covers how to deal with a fire in the engine compartment and a fire in the boot or fuel tank area of a rally car.
The training also teaches participants how to deal with a running fuel fire and fuel spills. This training is designed specifically for motorsport. Motorsport Ireland Fire Marshal Training is organised by Fire Training Services and courses are run for Motorsport Ireland organising clubs on request.
If your club wishes to hold a Fire Marshal Training course, please contact John Elliott from Fire Training Services at [email protected] to organise the date and location. Clubs must be able to guarantee a minimum attendance of eight participants at each course, with a maximum of 20. The cost of these courses should be negotiated between your club and Fire Training Services directly.
Individuals who wish to attend training should contact their local Motorsport Ireland affiliated organising club. Fire Marshals will be issued with a Certificate of Attendance on the day of training and can apply for a Fire Marshals' Licence and high visibility vest from Motorsport Ireland.
This is an especially useful and worthwhile course and we would encourage all Officials, Marshals, and competitors to attend.
