Paul Baxter, Commissioner at Fire & Rescue NSW, shares with Seven Network how is team is rolling out FLAIM Trainer into the emergency services organisation.
“Virtual reality (VR) technology is providing our firefighters the opportunity to train using simulated real-life emergencies and is the latest addition to our world-class training programs and facilities at Fire and Rescue NSW.
“From house and building fires, to motor vehicle crashes, structural collapses and bushfires, this state-of-the-art software creates realistic scenarios that will allow our firefighters to make ‘crucial decisions’ during simulated high-risk situations in a safe work (and environmentally friendly) setting.
“Under our five-year Plus Plan strategy, we committed to providing our firefighters with the technology they need to perform their vital roles safely and effectively. VR is an ‘out of the box’ approach to firefighter training, and another way that we’re leading the way with development programs that ensure our people are prepared for anything and always ready to keep our community safe.”- Paul Baxter, Commissioner at Fire & Rescue NSW.”
