What Types of Simulations Might You Consider?
While it may not be hard to think of possible incidents, we suggest you consider a systematic, two-pronged approach, to ensure coverage:
Develop a list of hazards and possible incidents in your area, from the bread and butter incidents––single and multi-family residences, commercials, etc.––to the more rare but serious incidents that keep you up at night.
Consult your SOP’s/SOG’s as a starting point for the simulation training you are developing.
Possible Types of Incidents
Your SOP’s/SOG’s should help you determine who needs to be trained to what competency. Later in this guide we discuss how to determine the level of detail needed for your simulations. You certainly don’t need to overanalyze this to begin, in fact most organizations start getting their feet wet with simple Company-Level Training simulations.
