Fire/Rescue Departments need to train their responders–from firefighter through Chief Officer–on realistic situations that have happened or could happen in their jurisdiction. SimsUshare is an effective and proven education and training platform for Fire & Rescue Departments to create and deploy simulations that reflect real-life and potential incidents. SimsUshare is also an effective platform for continuing education, promotional processes, validation of SOG’s and/or policies.
SimsUshare is easy to use. Anyone can create a wide variety of scenarios to develop, maintain and enhance real-world skills, especially for the potential incidents that ‘keep you up at night.’ Since it is easy to use and affordable, you can have people throughout your organization develop simulations to contribute their experience, thereby avoiding the bottleneck associated with typical simulation software that requires specialized study or only the ‘tech guy’ who knows how to make sims.
Create scenarios for virtually anything you can imagine, using your photos, from simple, first alarm incidents to complex, battalion level incidents, with timed changes of hazard conditions. Customers may have only 1 or 2 simulation developers, while others have outfitted/equipped all their apparatus, stations, and command vehicles to create simulations on the go. Because the viewer/player is free, it is easy to distribute simulations for training department-wide. Furthermore, customers are using SimsUshare to develop and enhance interoperability and mutual-aid with industrial, commercial, and public sector organizations in their jurisdiction, including schools and hospitals.
SimsUshare can be used at the kitchen table, at the training center and training ground, and anywhere else. SimsUshare allows you to conduct multi-company training from separate locations. This allows you to keep your crews in district, thereby reducing costs and backfill requirements through the (included) Command Training Center (CTC) functionality.
SimsUshare has unlimited uses and benefits such as:
- Pre-incident planning
- Size-up skills
- Communication skills
- Strategy & tactics
- Post-incident critique/lessons learned
- Promotion and ‘acting officer’ qualification
- Critical thinking & situational awareness
- Personnel accountability
- ICS / deployment
- SOP/SOG validation and compliance
- Apparatus placement
- Equipment training, e.g., PPV and Pump Operations

...[M]y department has just completed our 3rd promotional process utilizing the Sims-U-Share product and we couldn't be happier. The product is easy to use and provides the opportunity for our candidates to react to realistic scenarios that are tailored to our specific needs and employs buildings and hazards that are culled from our unique response area. Thanks for putting out such a user friendly product.
- What a great product. I have used it a few times and it was very easy to use, but also very powerful!
Exceptional Training App Had the opportunity to review earlier versions of this app. It was great then and better now. Easy to use. Great options and interoperability. Superb functions and options. Importing your own fotos is where the app becomes relevant and dynamic. Try it…you’ll like it
This software has been a great tool in educating my crews during downtime and during multi-company training. Keep up the great work.
I wanted to tell you how much [SimsUshare] has helped me with training of captain candidates. I just finished teaching a strategy and tactics class for my department, and it was a valuable tool.
I train people in fire and emergencies here in Australia and your app has been a godsend. As most of my training is on site and site specific they love it when I “burn’ their building down, or even better, blow it up. The new elements you keep adding make it real for simulated scenarios and assessing what people would and can do in the emergency situations SimsUshare can create. Mate, your imagination is your limit, and I would recommend this app to any emergency organisation for scenario based training. Believe it or not, I even saw a headline news fire on TV about 6 months ago where I am sure they used this program to simulate the fire, there you go, it looked so real.
This app is incredible. I love it. I made 2 or 3 quick sims and it works perfectly....I had no problem swapping my sims from PC to mobile. Thanks for the fast answer and the platinum licence. You and your team are the best. I cant wait to show my sims to my collegues.
I can honestly say I am extremely happy with this investment I made in my company. Your software is easy to use and has been a "game changer" for my consulting business. I will be a lifelong customer.
Your program allowed us to create a myriad of scenarios that we used to put our officers through this critical and significant training endeavor. Thanks to you and your program, this training has resulted in successful and meaningful training that magnifies that skill set of our officers and amplifies the safety of our entire operations on the fire ground. Your program was easy to set up and very user friendly. The program worked outstanding and without glitches. I hope to use your program for future training needs and seeking to have it used as the primary tool for every one of our stations (24). I thank you once again for your professional and impeccable customer service!
I have recently done a few presentations demonstrating your product and I believe I stated that it was probably the best investment for the money that a fire department could make in terms of training…. I have been with you guys from the beginning…. Right now we are starting a collaboration with 5 fire departments where we will be doing monthly officer training using the command training center function. I’ve been testing it out and so far all is working well.
I appreciate the help, your product is excellent. I just heard about it from an adjoining fire agency and built two promotional simulations. I will keep using it.
