TargetSolutions strives to deliver new, cutting-edge solutions that advance firefighter training. TargetSolutions’ parent company, Vector Solutions, recently completed a Virtual Reality (VR) training video that teaches firefighters how to read smoke coming out of a burning building with a 360-degree view of the scene.
This innovative video is now accessible as a free, pre-built training activity in the TargetSolutions platform. Utilizing the latest technology, personnel completing the activity will have an immersive learning experience in which they can employ crucial strategies and practice skills.

Working with Vector Solutions, Pasco County Fire Rescue (Fla.) helped close a city block in downtown Dade City, Florida and were filmed with a Gear 360 camera. In the video, Pasco County addresses a call for a two-story building fire and engage the learner through each step of the process.
Throughout this modernized course, individuals are prompted to select choices that impact the scenario; from the scene size-up to smoke reading to ventilation. Depending on the individual’s decisions, different outcomes ensue – allowing them to understand the effectiveness of their strategies.
