Our country encounters with thousands of fire and rescue related incidents. Serious resources re needed especially in the form of personnel and equipment, in order to deal with fire, earthquake, landslide, flooding, and other fire and rescue related incidents under the effect of behavioral consciousness, geographical and technical infra-super-structure.
It is essential for the personnel to know the appropriate behavior, apply this knowledge and be decisive in case of time-sensitive fire, disaster and emergency situations for the sake of city’s fight against disaster emergency situations.
Therefore, training on fire and rescue related incidents is extremely important for both the firefighter personnel and the citizens. It is only possible to train personnel with self-confidence, having the ability to use owned equipment, having the ability to work as part of a team, being good at problem solving, and being experienced through the perfectly designed training system and infrastructure.
Simsoft develops simulation systems for the firefighter vehicles in order to train personnel cost effectively, in high quality, and efficiently through the benefits of the simulation technologies. Many operator trainings and squad leader decision improving tactical trainings are provided for the vehicle operators, basket and ladder usage with the purpose of minimizing the time on arrival for fire, water delivery, and fire time. Operator trainings, using firefighter vehicle and its systems at operator level, are planned to be provided more effectively, faster, and for hard to create scenarios in real-life.

Vehicle Driving Simulators
The first step of the fire and rescue incident respond is arrival to the scene and parking in correct position. It is important to accomplish this in the shortest amount of time for minimizing the loss of property and lives. For this purpose, driving simulators provide experience and necessary information on arriving to scene as soon as possible under heavy traffic and environmental conditions for vehicle drivers. Vehicle drivers will be trained on how to behave for every condition through virtually created heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic, weather conditions, road conditions, and physical structure scenarios by using real vehicle equipment.
It is required to prepare systems for action after the arrival to the scene and correctly parking. For this purpose, firefighters should make the necessary adjustments on hardware such as fire pump, valves, feeding valves, engine rpm controls along with fire putout components. Simsoft’s pump simulator, integrated with driving simulator, is providing hands-on training for these operations.
Ladder operation, beginning after stabilizing the vehicle, includes ladder approach, straightening, bending, opening and closing activities for approaching to respond point. Ladder simulator, developed by Simsoft, is similarly modelled by using real hardware. All joystick, button and likewise hardware are located in simulation as integrated, and user trainings are provided for all functions through various scenarios.
After ladder was delivered appropriately to fire area, fire respond and rescue operations start on basket. There are fire hose, LCD screen, and controlling lever on basket simulator. Coordinated use with ladder, respond and rescue scenarios can be accomplished through various fire and rescue scenarios.
Managing and Creating Scenarios Tool
During training session, various scenarios or common scenarios can be applied for each user. It is possible to gather training scenarios in various categories and add new scenarios as required.
