The decisive factor in ensuring success for an intervention and rescue operation in toxic or chemical aggressive environments lies in optimal and efficient design of the training process for rescue personnel, including intervention in confined spaces. The current paper shows the designing and making of a modern infrastructure - mobile training facility with different high difficulty degree training routes, allowing the simulation of intervention activities in confined areas, horizontally and vertically, spaces with low visibility, above normal limits temperature and humidity, etc. as well as the measurement of several physiological parameters (pulse, blood oxygen level, calories consumed, etc.) that allow permanent monitoring of rescuers’ health condition during the training process. The mobile training facility consists of a space for physical training (endless ladder, impact device, treadmill, elliptical bike, stepper), an indoor training circuit and a control room that allows the coordination of all activities carried out within an exercise. The platform on which the training facility is placed can be moved to the business quarters where intervention and rescue activities take place, so that personnel engaged in this activity go through a complex training program, as close as possible to real-life interventions.
