The UK Fire Service College becomes coldcut™ cobra academy

Cold Cut Systems is delighted to announce its collaboration with the Fire Service College and Northamptonshire Fire & Rescue Service.

The Fire Service College (FSC), as an award-winning leader in fire and emergency response training in the UK and one of the world's largest operational fire and rescue training facilities, is the latest addition to the international coldcut™ cobra academy (CCA) structure.  The College will be working closely with Cold Cut Systems (CCS) and Northamptonshire Fire & Rescue Service to develop a national training provision for the Cobra Cutting Extinguisher method. 

Peter Oom CEO Cold Cut Systems, commented, “We are very pleased to work with the FSC and Northamptonshire to ensure Cobra sits at the centre of training provision in the UK.  The training resources that the college can bring to bear within the CCA structure to support the development of Cobra are second to none and we are confident that as Cobra use expands across the UK the national training provision will also develop and further enhance the concept.”

Jon Hall, director of training at the Fire Service College, said: “It is essential for the College to ensure that its training develops as firefighting methods evolve. Cobra is at the forefront of innovation in the UK and the College welcomes the opportunity to work with Cold Cut Systems and Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service. We will use our resources, reach and unique, assured training environment to build on the experience of the Northamptonshire Fire & Rescue Service and further enhance the training, research and development of the Cobra extinguishing concept.”

To support further development of the Cobra product and method CCS are pleased to announce the establishment of the UK Cobra User Group.  CCS intend to play host to its Cobra users and partners and will have its first inaugural meeting early in the New Year at the FSC, dates will shortly be announced. Similar groups are already well established in Scandinavia and Europe, CCS promote collaboration between these user groups as a means of maximising benefit and cross fertilisation of information.
