Emergency Scene Fire Simulations
In the Emergency Scene Fire Simulations section, Fire Captain / Lieutenant members will have full access to 24 static, 24 dynamic and 24 practice visual fire simulations using the SimsUshare simulator program. These simulations cover 24 different types of emergencies commonly seen during Officer assessment centers.
Battalion Chief members will have unlimited access to 24 static, 24 static and 24 practice emergency simulations. These simulations are more complex and require an additional number of resources to manage when compared to the Fire Captain/Lieutenant simulations.
In addition, the Emergency Scene Fire Simulations section for both Fire Captain / Lieutenant and Battalion Chief include examples of the most common, all-risk emergency incidents that you should be prepared to manage as an incident commander.
The visual simulations cover a wide variety of incidents, including: house fires, apartment fires, a structure fire with a known rescue, commercial building fires, multi-casualty incidents, wildland, and hazardous materials incidents. You will learn how to locate and manage a victim, a lost firefighter, and a downed firefighter, during an emergency incident or fire simulation. In addition, you will see how to respond to the developments that typically occur during a fire simulation. One of our objectives for you is to make sure that you are not seeing a situation for the first time during your promotional exam.
