US Air Force uses innovation funds to purchase FLAIM simulator

The fire department in Nebraska used innovation funds to purchase a simulator that provides real world scenarios to enhance their skills without being in an unsafe environment.

With the cost of firefighter personal protective exceeding $3,000 and the high cost of specialized firefighting vehicles – $500,000 to $800,000 – this trainer saves wear and tear, fuel and operational costs on these high dollar assets as they are not used as often.
