First Responder Training Challenges:
- COVID impact on ability to train large teams.
- Budget cuts that limit training for complex emergencies.
- Logistical hurdles to organize large training events.
- Lack ability to track, measure and verify mission-readiness.
- Inferior training leads to decreased confidence in teams and equipment.
Virtual reality and augmented reality trainings for first responders directly address these challenges.
First Responders Experience High Stress & Trauma.
Funding constraints and high op-tempo often prevent first responders from training, especially for complex emergencies requiring large collective events. Continuous operations can cause first responders to lose their edge on critical skills. A loss of confidence can lead to higher stress, and ultimately undermine their physical, mental and emotional well being.
This is why we developed the HERO Platform to provide virtual and augmented reality training for first responders. Having access to virtual reality training for first responders can significantly reduce stress of scheduling and attending training. And, the platform provides performance analysis feedback to help both the trainee and commanders have confidence they are mission-ready.

This case study came from a collaboration with US Ignite as part of their Smart Gigabit Communities program. The Just-in-time VR Training for Ambus EMS was a success because it improved training outcomes at lower costs. See the results below and take a closer look at the AMBUS virtual reality training for first responders available now.
Increased Memory Recall
Improved cognitive and physical memory
of mission-critical tasks and up to a 45% reduction in errors.
Decreased Time on Task
Training resulted in up to a 29% reduction in time-on-task
and a 91% acceptance rate among cadets who participated.
82% of Austin EMS cadets felt prepared for the testing
of selected topics after participating in the AR & VR training.
Our trainings can be implemented at a 90% reduction
of the original cost of a traditional moulage-style training.
