Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of your training simulators?2020-07-23T13:43:10-05:00

Imagine if you had unlimited houses to burn down to train in, or if you had a never ending supply of cars to practice extrication on. As you can guess, no fire department’s budget could ever support this. But with simulators, that is exactly what you get… an extensive selection of complex and involved training scenarios that you can run over and over as many times as you want, without any additional costs.

Additionally, unlike real world training, simulators offer little risk of injury. And, best of all, you can run these complex and normally resource-intensive scenarios even when you are alone or with a small group. Keep fresh on select skills, or prep for an upcoming exercise without the need to coordinate your entire hall.

Is this a video game?2020-07-23T13:40:06-05:00

While there are a number of overlaps between games and simulators, there are also a number of key differences. Video games are for entertainment, while training simulators are for education. Simulators are tools, whereas video games are toys.

As well, some scenarios created in our training simulators are designed to recreate the emotional stresses faced on real calls and are not suited for general audiences.

Is this product designed to replace traditional training?2020-07-24T13:21:29-05:00

No. Training simulators are deigned to supplement your training regime. By reinforcing key concepts and giving immediate feedback, our simulators can better prepare you the regularly scheduled real-word training you still need to do.

Benefits of Training Simulators

  • Available 24/7 – catch up on missed training, prepare for upcoming events, practice for upcoming tests, keep your entire department’s skillset fresh and ready for action.
  • No mess to clean up, no exposure to carcinogens, no polluting the environment.
  • Introduce a younger generation to firefighting
  • Train the same skills you normally do, without weeks or moths of preparation
  • Virtual reality training has shown to lessen learning curves of new skills, decrease error rates in performance, and nearly double the memory retention of traditional means.
  • Low risk training in a controlled, consistent environment.
  • More than 1/10 firefighter fatalities happen during training – help prevent your team members from becoming another tragic statistic.
  • Very low manpower requirements to run complex and involved scenarios.
  • Run through exercises unlimited times.. burn props over and over or destroy a never-ending supply of cars.
  • Adherence to NFPA guidelines to achieve standardized training.
  • Train your broader community – take your system to schools or community events to train the public, teachers, students, and  more with basic firefighting skills.
  • Real-time pass/fail feedback for each critical step of each exercise helps to reinforce correct procedures.
  • A small mistake or missed step can be the difference between saving or losing a life, both for firefighters and the people you are there to help.
  • The costs and damage done by an injury or death could far outweigh the price of buying your own simulator.
