Training Of The Future Smart FireFighter with Virtual Reality

First responders are woven into our everyday life and must deal with immense daily stress to keep society safe. Due to this constant exposure to life’s most extreme situations, this can cause exponentially larger cases of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, panic disorder, and other operational stress injuries than within the general population.

How do we better prepare first responders for these situations before and after dangerous incidents? What can we do to explore new training methodologies to complement and enhance first responders’ training efforts around the world? In comes Virtual Reality.
