This article presents the results of experimental determination of temperature field and heat flux density in a flashover container used for the training of firefighters. Experimental measurements were carried out in a chamber No. 1 of a firefighting trainer of Fire and Rescue Service of the Czech Republic at Zbiroh. The article describes the design and equipment of this chamber, used method of measurement and test procedure. Measured values of temperature field and heat flux density are stated and discussed. In conclusion, recommendations for further measurements in this chamber aimed at acquiring other findings concerning thermal loads on firefighters in the course of training are presented.
