Kiwi firefighters to use virtual headsets to train

Kiwi firefighters are set to benefit from the introduction of a new type of technology.

Firefighters will begin to use virtual reality training to prepare them for complex and unsafe scenarios.

The ‘FLAIM’ system, developed in Australia, simulates real-life situations, and includes protective clothing that generates realistic heat.

It means firefighters can fight big flames and take on the risks of a burning building, all while staying safe.

As well as the virtual reality goggles, a breathing apparatus, heat vest, suit, and interactive hose reel have also been developed.
