Basic Guidelines When Creating Fire and Safety Simulations

  • Simulations complement (complete) your existing training program. Don’t build your program around the simulations you create. Rather, use them to make your training program better (more effective). 
  • Often simple simulations will nicely illustrate the training points you want to convey. You can make very elaborate simulations if you like but determine before you start how detailed they need to be. You can always add to them later.
  • Make sure you match the scenario to the students’ expected roles within the response model.
