Fire Simulators allow the brave fire staff to train and drive the simulator before commanding a large and very important vehicle. Well designed simulator-based safety courses place these student drivers in a multitude of realistic, relatable, hazardous traffic situations. The trainees are challenged to make real-time decisions and to execute corrective actions. They quickly become keenly aware of the consequences of their decisions and subsequent actions. Any missteps reveal painful outcomes and have significant impact—personalizing results and motivating students to seek effective, safe resolutions. The goal of simulator based training is to help drivers gain confidence and skills in identifying potential hazards sooner, and to competently initiate corrective actions to remedy these situations based on well-practiced decision making capabilities.
