“With our virtual reality Firefighter Training Simulator, we are able to facilitate a vast array of skills and experiences that otherwise may not be covered in a typical recruit class or in daily drill sessions. The military and aviation industry has been utilizing simulators for years and it has proven to be a vital component for development as practical revolutions are very time consuming and inefficient with Training Officer’s time. The potential of virtual reality is limitless and this simulator will propel us into the future with advanced training for all ranks.”

– Jonathan Hunter, Director of the Fire & Rescue Academy, City of Winnipeg

What are firefighter training simulators?2023-04-04T16:04:22-05:00

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?2024-04-11T09:34:37-05:00

No. Training simulators are designed 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.
