Many people don’t know what a fire fighting simulator is, but it’s important to invest in one for your team. A fire fighting simulator uses computer software and hardware that replicates the conditions of a real-life emergency situation so that you can train more effectively. The best thing about this type of training is that it will help improve safety as well as save lives.
There are endless ways that using a fire fighting simulator can help your team. First, it will give people the opportunity to learn without putting themselves in harm’s way by taking risks with actual firefighting equipment and dangerous environments. Studies we and our customers have conducted have shown real learning results that translate into performance in the field.
Second, a high quality fire simulator can be customized for individual needs so that everyone on the team has an equal opportunity to improve their skills while also making sure they’re up-to-date on safety protocol and procedures. For example, SimsUshare allows you to turn your own pictures into 100% customizable simulations that are relevant to your team, the situations you encounter in the field, and the local area you serve.
Third, a fire fighting simulator will provide you with more opportunities to use your equipment and practice all the skills that make up being an effective firefighter. This type of training is particularly beneficial for those who may not have had any prior experience in fighting fires or as first responders.
Fourth, by investing in this type of product, you save your team the time and money that would be spent in live training (which is also necessary – a fire fighting simulator is a good accessory or addition to live evolutions).
Finally, the best benefit of a firefighting simulator like ours is that it can be used to train in any location and at any time. You can train your team remotely, together, in real-time.
With so many benefits, it’s no wonder why fire fighting simulators are becoming more and more popular with fire crews around the world. If you want to make sure that your team has the best and most versatile training possible, then investing in this type of program is worth every penny.
