“THE PAST WE INHERIT THE FUTURE WE CREATE”
REALITY IN VIRTUAL REALITY – TRAINING OF THE FUTURE

Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service watch manager Paul Speight has taken a concept from its inception to the national and international stage, nominated the virtual reality lead for the UKs fire and Rescue Service by the National Fire Chiefs Council.

Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service are creating the future by capturing, designing and developing the training environments of the future.

Using cutting edge technology to reproduce real scenes from different incidents by using a photo realistic process to produce real life training scenarios. We believe that VR needs to engage both your body and your mind it’s interactive and explorable and totally believable.

Virtual reality creates muscle memory and accelerates learning and has been proved to have a seventy-five per cent retention rate

VR is scalable so in addition to being incredibly powerful training tool, it provides significant cost savings crucial when budgets are under pressure.
