Live Fire Training Simulator for Firefighters



Automation controls are helping firefighters get the full training experience without the danger. With the ability to monitor the smoke machines, the sprinklers, the temperature in the training environment trainers can automatically shut down the system when circumstances become dangerous, something that one could not do a few years ago training in old abandoned buildings. Interviews with Frank Corregio, Boca Raton Fire Rescue Services, Rick Egelin, founder, Fireblast 451, Tom Kopanski, Siemens, Elizabeth Moran, firefighter.
