In the twelve months prior to the acquisition of the BullEx System, CFA Region 14 delivered
twelve sessions to 274 individuals, however a number of sessions were not able to
undertake the practical component of the training due to unfavourable weather conditions
(wind, rain or both) or the inability of an organisation to provide a safe outdoor area.

Between August 2007 and June 2008, 36 sessions to 489 individuals have been delivered to
a variety of community sectors. All sessions have been able to include the practical
component of the training using the Bullex equipment.

Feedback from participants has been excellent and participation rates have increased
significantly since the introduction of the Bullex equipment. Previously it was difficult to get
people to use fire extinguishers on real fire during the practical component of the training.
Utilising the BullEx System the majority of participants are eager to use the fire extinguisher
to extinguish the “fire”. Often people will have multiple attempts with the different classes of
fire and levels of difficulty. Weather conditions or suitable outdoor locations are no longer a
factor in the provision of the practical component of fire extinguisher training.
Another major benefit to the community that has arisen since the introduction of BullEx
equipment is there is now no charge for the provision of fire extinguisher training. This has
been of enormous benefit to many of the smaller businesses and community based
organisations allowing their members to receive fire extinguisher training.
Attached are photos of the Bullex Fire Extinguisher Training System in action and a letter of
appreciation received from one of the many organisations that have benefited from the
acquisition of the equipment.
