Firefighting is an essential part of the security of our society. So naturally the training of people who can fight fires is a valued asset. Traditional basic training is mandatory, but there are a lot of situations that cannot be recreated without being too dangerous or costly. Virtual Reality brings a solution for all the scenarios that are impossible to train. Through simulation a firefighter could be prepared for any scenario and train the most complex situations. This is exactly where Flashover comes in.
Flashover VR suitcase
Flashover is an all-in-one firefighting VR kit. It contains 4 VR headsets and 2 real-life nozzles decked out with sensors. The hardware and software are all inside the suitcase and can be set up within 5 minutes. Network connection is provided through an integrated WiFi-router and an integrated computer that can project the training to a large screen. You can train with up to 4 people in real-time while training according to the ‘train as you fight’ principle. Then why is it inside a suitcase? Just to make it as easy to use as it is to transport it. Carry it anywhere and use it anytime!
Plug & Play
A principle that stems from the uprising of hardware that you could instantly use. This applies to Flashover as well. The idea of training firefighting anywhere and anytime is what plug & play means. Anybody can use Flashover, it was designed with experts of the Fire Service.
