My current focus regarding equipment simulations is in the Fire Service. My company has created a few simulations for the leading magazine/publisher in the industry, Fire Engineering. I really enjoy working on equipment in this industry because you can see immediately how useful the hands-on aspect can help the firefighters learn to apply equipment properly. We’ve also developed a following for our team-based training platform, CommandSim. That program can integrate equipment usage, but to date it has been focused on training for strategy, tactics, and communication.
Fire Engineering has just started a social network for training in the Fire Service (click here), and this will give me some public exposure to present and discuss issues around simulation that really relate to a variety of industries.
