Fire Simulator Free

Postby Banjoeyes » Thu Jun 07, 2007 7:49 am

Google search for firesimulator a free computer based fire simulator program. Quite nice actually in that it allows import and use of your own photos in generating scenarios for training. I tried to place the web address here but was unable.

Check it out

If it's the one I just googled on there....it's any wonder that it's "free"....nobody would pay for that. :p

Here's the one that my department is looking at buying this year, http://www.digitalcombustion.com/

The instructor we had for two courses at the FDIC Atlantic last weekend used this, and it's a wicked tool! He was in no way associated with this company....and neither am I. :p

I've been 'playing around' with our new 'Fire Studio 4- Digital Combustion' program, and it's pretty wild! I'm covering shipboard firefighting for this Monday's training, and am using some pictures of the tugboat that I work on. I can make a small fire on board grow into a big fire and it's so real looking, that you'd swear they were real videos.

I'm going to use the video presentation to go along with a discussion on how we would tackle a fire on board, and then follow it up with a tour of the actual boat.

I've also been using some pictures of my own house, as well as the Chief's house to simulate some very real looking structure fires.

Has anyone else had a chance to use this program?

Can anyone tell me if the dispatch software that is out there has the capability of handling special needs ie: flagging business with hazardous materials, homes with handicapped, restricted or limited vehicle access, etc.
As a follow-up, is anyone taking advantage of these software capabilities?

Late reply, I know.

Short answer: Yep and yep.

I'm a former dispatcher now firefighter. Ottawa fire currently employs building and radius (nearby) hazards, and they pop up whenever a call is entered.

Not all departments are using CAD to its full ability like that, however.
