Subsection 1

Stocker, B-Bodnár, L: Shortcomings in cooperation during the marching of the fire engine

Abstract: The march to the intervention area takes from the place of departure of the alarmed fire forces and equipment until the arrival of the event specified in the signal. The march is carried out using the distinctive light and sound signal at the same time, within the framework of the highway code. However, fast and efficient marching is influenced by a number of factors, including the behaviour of the drivers in the traffic when a vehicle with a distinctive sign appears. In the poster, the authors present general errors and their possible solutions, referring primarily to his own driving experience. As a result of the poster, we will learn about the difficulties of the migration logistics, and the authors will present their suggestions to help the migration of the fire engine. 

Balázs Stocker was born on 2nd of May 1980 in Budapest. After completing his military service, he graduated at the High School of Law Enforcement in Budapest and worked as a police officer for several years. Since 2007 he has been working at the Budapest Disaster Management Directorate as a firefighter, in the position of special equipment operator and driver. Between 2008 and 2016, in addition to his work as a firefighter, he worked as an ambulance driver at the National Ambulance Service in Hungary. Here, in addition to his driving duties, he co-operated with the ambulance doctor in the patient care. He is currently a student at the University of Public Service, Faculty of Law Enforcement at the Institute for Disaster Management, specialising for Fire Protection and Rescue Operations Management.

László Bodnár was born on 31 of January 1992 in Budapest. He began his studies in 2010 at the University of Public Service and obtained the BSc degree in defence administration as a Defence Administration Organizer and in 2016 the MSc degree in defence administration as a Defence Administration Manager. He began his PhD studies in 2016 at the Doctoral School of Military Engineering at the University of Public Service. He is currently an assistant lecturer at the National Directorate General for Disaster Management, who works at the Institute of Disaster Management of the Faculty of Law Enforcement at the University of Public Service. He is also a PhD Candidate. His research topic is “research and development of methods to increase the effectiveness of firefighting in case of wildfires.” The expected time for his thesis defence is spring 2021. 


Huszka, ZS – Rácz, S: Presentation of occupational safety solutions against hazards during the firefighting

Abstract: The number of civil work accidents is decreasing year after year, so they are developing in a predictable way. However, accidents in case of firefighting are fluctuating in frequency. One of the reasons for this is that it is not possible to create a suitable working environment in case of an intervention. Technically designed protection solutions, such as guardrails or protective guards, cannot be used. To compensate it, a unique occupational safety system has been developed at the fire departments, which includes personal protective equipment, the practice-orientation of the trainings and the necessary psychological preparation. These are complemented by novel technologies as well as safe intervention procedures.

Sándor Rácz was born on 11 of April 1973 in Nyírbátor. He began his studies in 2010 at the University of Public Service and obtained the BSc degree in defence administration as a Defence Administration Organizer and after that the MSc degree in defence administration as a Defence Administration Manager. He began his PhD studies in 2015 at the Doctoral School of Military Engineering at the University of Public Service. He received his scientific degree in 2019. He is currently an assistant professor at the National Directorate General for Disaster Management, who works at the Institute of Disaster Management of the Faculty of Law Enforcement at the University of Public Service. He also worked at the Municipal Fire Department of Budapest and at the Professional Fire Department of Budapest District IX as a Deputy Commander.

Zsolt Huszka was born on 9 of June, 1987 in Orosháza, Hungary. He became a professional firefighter in 2006, and started this year the basic firefighting course, and completed it in 2007. After that he completed the operations management course and then the operations management reference course. He has extended his knowledge through various trainings in addition to classic fire protection competencies, such as the relevant DWS C + M modules or the control of dangerous goods transport. Now he is a student at the University of Public Service, Faculty of Law Enforcement Institute of Disaster Management.


Bodnár, L.: Physical load test of firefighters based on the carried overload 

Abstract: Humanity has been in constant contact with fire throughout the history. During this time they also learned the beneficial and dangerous effects of fire. Fire generates regularly around the world, so the science of firefighting needs constant research and development. The physical work of firefighters is notoriously tiring. On the one hand, this can affect the health of firefighters during a longer intervention, so it would be useful to increase the physical performance of firefighters, and on the other hand, reducing the physical load also provides an opportunity to increase the effective intervention. In the paper, I point out the limitations of the load capacity of firefighters and demonstrate the need to increase the ability to extinguish with free movement. In order to achieve this goal, I am conducting my own test, which does not require significant resources, but their results can already provide guidance for a tool development. As a result of the test, I propose to use a novel, innovative technical tool during the firefighting.

László Bodnár was born on 31 of January 1992 in Budapest.

Kersák J ZS: - Pántya, P: Technical development opportunity in the field of practical training in rescue fire protection

Abstract: With the horizontal and vertical expansion of urbanization, threats, disasters and damage of civilizational and/or natural origin are having an unprecedented impact. Due to their course and intensity, the danger to human life and material goods, it is necessary to develop certain segments of the applied protection systems, such as fire practical education, in parallel with the development of technologies. This direction of development cannot be limited to domestic research and development, it is necessary in a broader sense to examine the good practices that have already been proven and applied internationally and the possibilities of their adaptation. New educational methods and tools can make fire protection and incident intervention more effective.

József Zsolt Kersák was born on April 21, 1976 in Pincehely. He has been working as a professional firefighter since 2000, his current position as deputy commander. He studied in Keszthely in 2011 as an agricultural engineer for economic and rural development. He started as a disaster management organizer at the National University of Public Service in 2013, graduating in 2019 as a disaster management manager(MSc).

Gál, L., Rácz, S.: Presence of Factors Influencing a Decision Based on Signals of the Fire Alarm System

Abstract: In the field of fire prevention, the design, installation and reliability of fire alarm systems are very important areas. In case of buildings with a fire alarm system, for example due to sensor contamination, negligent maintenance or environmental conditions, it is common to receive several times a signal at the same site. Experiences have shown that in case of a fire alarm transmitted by automatic device, due to the frequency of its occurrence, the firefighter considers the false fire alarm more likely than any other type of case. Interveners, due to the high incidence rate, become somewhat resistant to this process, they do not take into account the uniqueness of the case, and the presence of potential sources of danger. This miscalculation of probabilities leads to the development of overconfidence, which can put all participants in the intervention at risk and force them to improvise. 

Levente Gál is the service commander of the Professional Fire Department of Kisvárda. He started his bachelor studies at the University of Public Service, at the Institute of Disaster Management specialization for Fire Protection and Rescue Operations Management. After that, he completed the Master studies in Disaster Management in 2019 at the University of Public Service. In addition, during his duty as a firefighter, he does a research in the topic of innovative development opportunities that facilitate the work of the interveners.

Bánhegyi R-Rácz S: Firefighting in case of solar panels

Abstract: Solar energy is progressing quickly, so there is a need for this development to be followed by the disaster management. This requires the acquisition and use of appropriate protective equipment and extinguishing material. Firefighting in case of solar panels can also be dangerous for firefighters, so it is important to be aware of the options that can be used to perform the effective and safe intervention. Firefighters should be preparing for fighting against installations under voltage if the solar panel or its immediate surrounding is burning. Firefighting can be performed successfully if we have the appropriate knowledge. At the international level, several experiments have been conducted for the effective tactics, some of them can be applied on the practical level.

Roland Bánhegyi was born on 27 of July 1978 in Mohács. He was graduated in high school in 1999 and in the same year he applied for admission to a military school in Budapest. A year later he got his first assignment in Pécs like a platoon commander. Seven years later in 2007 he gave up the military life and became a firefighter. In 2010 he became a firefighter technician. He began his studies in 2017 at the University of Public Service and obtained the BSc degree in fire protection and rescue operations management as a Disaster Manager in Fire Protcetion and Rescue Control.

Rekeny, M., Restás, Á.: Comparative Effectiveness Analysis of Fire Engines Focusing on Forest Fires

Abstract: Wildfires are one of the most challenging disasters. The size of the burned areas due to outdoor fires is getting higher year by year. At the same time, the value of the damage and the cost of the firefighting is increasing. One of the keys to reduce these is to start the intervention as soon as possible.  By reducing the withdrawal time, the period of free spread of fire can be most effectively reduced. This requires small and simple fire trucks that are effective on dirt roads and in the field. In the presentation, the author analyses the effectiveness of the simple fire trucks.

Máté Rekeny was born on 15 of May, 1986 in Esztergom. He has been a professional firefighter since 2008. He began his studies in 2010 at the University of Public Service and obtained the BSc degree in defence administration as a Defence Administration Organizer in 2013. He is currently a student at the University of Public Service, Faculty of Law Enforcement, Institute of Disaster Management, Department of Fire Protection and Rescue Operations Management.

Kós, Gy: Rapid Fire Progress (RFP)

Abstract: Between 2003 and 2012, 63 firefighters died in a flashover-related incident in the US. Fire regulations are significantly tightened,but in modern construction the plastic-based and chemically treated wooden furniture favor extreme fire spreads. In fact, in today’s buildings, flashover is spreading eight times faster than 50 years ago.

György Kós is a doctoral student at the University of Public Service, Doctoral School of Military Engineering. He graduated at the University of Public Service Institute of Disaster Management. He has extensive international experience in the following courses: Combat Medic/Tactical Trauma Life Support, Firefighter Advanced Survival Techniques. He is a fire chief at the volunteer fire department of Fábiánsebestyén. His research interest is firefighting, technical rescue, special vehicles and life - saving operations.


Farkas J: Coping strategies of firefighters

Abstract: The firefighters experience may result an elevated risk of burnout, depression, and other mental disorders due to incidents at their work. The current approach to addressing these fields tends to focus on individuals coping. This study aims to determine the effects of stress in professional firefighters, and the types of coping strategies among Olson’s Multisystem Assessment of Stress and Health (MASH) model. Eighty-two professional firefighters participated in this research from five urban fire departments. The Coping Inventory for Stressful Situations and Coping and Stress Profile were used to exam coping strategies. The survey shows that the members of the intervention staff are exposed to the greatest stress during their work. The vast majority of the stock responds to stress with adequate coping strategies. This suggests that firefighters are increasingly exposed to stress during their work and should be provided with more training and psychological support for dealing with work stress. As the data were not subjected to statistical analysis, the results are not considered scientifically relevant.

Urszuly, R: Extinguishing fires from solar systems

Abstract: Firefighters face unexpected challenges with the growth of new uses for alternative energy. These renewable energy sources save on the use of conventional fuels such as oil and other fossil fuels, but they carry unknown hazards themselves, requiring new firefighting strategies and procedures. These alternative energy use conditions include buildings equipped with solar energy systems that pose a number of significant hazards in the event of a fire. The article covers solar systems utilizing solar panels that generate heat and / or electricity and focus on the structural firefighting of buildings and structures, in particular solar panels used to generate electricity. However, before we go any further, I would like to briefly describe a relatively common installation format.

Robert Urszuly is 34 years old, father of two children. He has been a firefighter for 13 years in Budapest, the capital of Hungary, at the country's most alarmed fire brigade. He is currently studying at the University of Public Service. In addition to the fire department, he was a driver at the National Ambulance Service, among others. He is a trained industrial climber, who still works with expertise and practice. In addition to the fire department, he currently works for a company that installs solar panels. After graduating from high school, he qualified as an aircraft engineer, where he worked for a few years. After that, he worked as a car mechanic, also for a few years, but by then he was already a firefighter. All this experience makes him a good technician and a specialist in the solar topic.

Fekete, A-Pántya P: Fire, multi-risk and technical rescue needs in Germany and Hungary. Organizational differences and similarities

Abstract: The objective of this study is to make a comparison on how Germany and Hungary can provide answers for the challenges of different fire and technical rescue incidents. Major improvements in technical firefighting material but also training have been achieved for daily emergencies from the late 1970s to the today1,2. However, new challenges also arise, such as shift in hazard types due to technological and societal change, but also a new focus on natural hazards, multiple, sometimes cascading, risks.

Alexander Fekete research focuses on studying the systemic interrelations of natural, technical and man-made hazards with social vulnerabilities and critical infrastructures. Interdisciplinary disaster risk management, risk governance, urban resilience, risk and crisis communication, and target levels of safety and security are recent research and educational activities.
Alexander Fekete previously worked from 2009-2012 as a Project Officer at the German Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance in the field of Critical Infrastructure Protection. From 2005-2009 he was Research Scholar at the United Nations University – Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), conducting research on social vulnerability to floods and climate change adaptation.

P. Pántya: Extra load and limitations on firefighters

Abstract: There are a lot of safety issues during the fire, disaster management tasks and interventions, mainly lifesaving, firefighting or technical rescue. Basicly personally, very close to the firefighters we can find more dangers to them. More dangers, extra loads and also limitations can caused by the personal protective equipment itself. A research described the elements, directions and also the effects these negative impacts for the protected members of fire protection or disaster management units, to varying degrees.

Al-Khawaldeh, I., Restás, Á.: Forest Wildfire Crisis Management

Abstract: Forest wildfire is an issue that has a worldwide concern, its management is taking a sort of firefighting measures rather than tackling fire symptoms at early stages. This approach in almost all cases has proven its failure in reducing the extent of damage. UAV’s in future will play a vital rule in detecting the fire initiation symptoms or fire at early stages, that would make firefighting economically feasible.

Tomasz Zweglinski, Péter Pántya: LNG CONDITIONAL SCENARIO FLOW MODEL for INCIDENTS in ROAD TRANSPORT

Abstract: A shift towards broader use of LNG is economically and environmentally justified. However, it triggers an obvious need for investigating on LNG risk through elaboration and validation of potential scenarios, the hazard might generate if materializes. This background knowledge and past experiences were elaborated in order to fulfil the poster’s aim which is designing the LNG Conditional Scenario Flow Model for such cases as storage in a tank, road and pipeline transport. The model is conditional since the concept complies the emergency mitigation measures undertaken on different phases of the scenario development. This presentation is dedicated to fulfil this aim by answering the following question – what are the key scenario lines LNG incidents might follow? The proposed model is a suitable tool to be implemented for first responders and educational, training purposes. Furthermore, it might be utilized as a supporting scheme for pre and post incident analyses.

Péter Tomka, Péter Pántya: Identifying firefighters and Vehicles on the Fire Ground

Abstract: The ability to identify and distinguish firefighters and vehicles is a key factor on how transparent the fire ground is. A survey previously conducted amongst firefighters reveals that it is necessary to better mark individual firefighters, the incident commander and firefighting vehicles. Individual firefighters can be marked by their call signs on their helmets, turnout gear and SCBA.
