Humpday Hangouts

In this week's Humpday Hangout, the ISFSI panel with discuss the use of technology in all aspects of fire service training, including realistic computer-based simulations, digital fire simulators on the drill ground, and various learning management system (LMS) platforms.

Emerging technologies and technologies introduced during the past few months are diverse and, as expected, their primary objectives are to improve first responder safety and efficiency. Firefighters themselves identified a number of these new technological needs, many of which became realities through the cooperative efforts of the fire and emergency services, fire service organizations, government agencies, industry, and academia. The new products and studies are apparent in virtually every aspect of emergency response.
