Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) have become the new frontier in emergency response training.
Emergency responders are able to train on these new technologies that are safer, more realistic, and less expensive than traditional methods.
Topics That Will Be Covered:
- A safer place to fail with VR
- Physically safer platform to train with VR
- Emotionally safer platform to train with VR
- Adding realism to traditional training with VR
- Applying classroom knowledge to VR training
- Preparing for live training with VR
- AR/VR provides diversity in training
“What does Virtual Reality Training do for first responders?”
Some people may ask this question, and it is an important one. First responders face dangerous situations all the time, and they need to know how to react if the case were to happen again.
The problem is that not all training methods are safe or realistic enough for these professionals to enter into an immersive experience that provides the valuable training environment to sufficiently prepare them for these situations.
Virtual reality training provides a safer place for them to fail without risking anyone’s life in the process and provides a more realistic environment than traditional classrooms. This blog will cover some of the benefits of using VR technology in first responder training to improve training safety and security.
