Training simulator provides real-life experience
By Fire Fighting in Canada
Aug. 16, 2011 – Personal Protection Equipment Specialists’ Guardian Safety and Survival Training Simulator was designed and developed after 9-11 by Tom Quinn, who was determined to find a safe way to better prepare first-responders who put their lives on the line for others. The mobile training simulator is able to recreate more than 200 catastrophic scenarios that first responders will likely encounter. Trainees will find themselves having to crawl through two levels of narrow spaces of a pancaked building on a mission to rescue a trapped victim, while acquiring hands-on experience in perfecting necessary techniques in stabilizing collapsed environments, shoring up flooring and/or gas leaks, and accessing, lifting and extricating victims from life-threatening environments.
