Hello Smart Firefighting Community!
Welcome to another episode of covering real world innovations via interviews with fire service and technology industry experts that empower YOU to develop your very own Smart Firefighting strategy!
This is the eleventh episode of our Interschutz 2022 Mini Series. Interschutz 2022 was an international trade show hosted over six days and included exhibitions plus engaging forums covering the various aspects of firefighting, rescue services, civil protection and safety and security.
In this episode:
- A comparison between the U.S. and European fire services
- How to use simulation tools within daily training
- How a simulation sandbox prepares first responders before live training
Emergency responders benefit from experiencing incidents in a safe, controllable, repeatable, and measurable environment. As a previous firefighter himself and the International Sales Rep for XVR Simulation, Emiel Stevens supports Police and Fire Academies with implementing simulation training into their curriculum.
XVR On Scene allows participants to understand concepts and learning objectives through experiencing them. The participant acquires practical knowledge and can practice decision-making skills in situations that occur in real life. The XVR Academy provides tailor-made training and sets the environment for community interaction through workshops, the yearly User Group Meetings, and the XVR website. XVR Simulation is a part of the Learn pro Group.
