The NAVAL FIRE FIGHTING TRAINING and EDUCATION SYSTEM (NAFTES) is a holistic framework for the training of crew and officers in simulated fire conditions in representative ship engineering compartments. NAFTES assumes three different facets structured around the Fire Fighting Simulator (FFS) and Crew Evacuation Simulator (Damage Control School) of the Naval Training Command of the Hellenic Navy. The FFS, a central component in the Damage Control School, has been in operation since 2006 and adopts a conventional training workflow which will be radicalized through NAFTES. The Hellenic Navy (participating organization in NAFTES through the Hellenic Ministry of Defense, HMOD) intends to broaden the use and extend the scope of this unique training platform to commercial shipping companies from all around the globe. Therefore, NAFTES is considered of paramount importance to the Greek shipping industry, one of the most important sectors of the Greek economy which currently undergoes a serious crisis.
