Active Threat and Emergency Response Training for Fire Departments

Firefighters routinely find themselves entering first response situations blindly, not knowing what might be in store for them when they respond to a call.

Unfortunately, it isn’t logistically possible for every firefighter to physically tour and train within every public space or high-risk environment. Yet, imagine if every firefighter on the force had virtual access to each place of public assembly in their district, including schools, hospitals, government buildings and more.

See how OSCR360 can provide a valuable look inside public spaces so that fire departments can familiarize themselves with a building’s layout and plan for an emergency.

Accessing Unsafe Structures & Environments with OSCR360

When it comes to fire service professionals, unsafe structures and environments continuously pose a risk to their health, safety, and well-being.

Firefighters are in danger while they work to extinguish each blaze and rescue victims who may be trapped inside. The hazmat team is vulnerable when responding to chemical spills and explosions. The search and rescue team enters precarious situations that no one else has the capability to handle. Investigators put themselves at risk when they are exposed to environmental conditions and the structural damage that remains after the emergency response team has cleared the scene.   

See how OSCR360 can help with accessing unsafe structures and training for these scenarios.

How do Investigators Determine the Origin and Cause of a Fire? 

The ultimate goal of a fire investigator is to determine the fire’s origin and cause. The “point of origin” is the precise location where a fire was ignited, and the “cause” refers to the exact source(s) of the flame. Causation forensics, or the science behind determining the where, how and why a fire occurred, is important for many reasons. Discover more here:
