FireSimâ„¢ Fire Truck Driving Simulator

The FireSim™ Fire Truck Driving Simulator provides high fidelity real-world driving environments to train decision-making and behavior over a wide range of situations facing your emergency vehicle operators every day.


Benefits of Simulation-Based Training

  • Accident Reduction: Simulation training reinforces positive decision making through training in realistic, risk-free situations.
  • Reinforce Driving Skills: This will translate into reduced accidents, better decision making and reinforcement of policy and procedure.
  • After Action Reviews: Each scenario is individually recorded with the ability to analyze, reconstruct and implement proper responses and techniques. The Replay Studio™ camera is positioned above the drive and records every action, reaction, and nuance of a driver’s physical performance while training on the simulator.
  • Reduced Equipment Maintenance: Minimize damage to equipment by repeated practice on the simulator.
