Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

I put together a list of software I've found for powering incident training in Command Training Centers. I distributed the list at the roundtable at FDIC, but I know there are a lot of people who couldn't make it.

This is not to say that the software is limited to Command training. If anyone has software I missed, please let me know so I can add it to the list. Certainly add any comments you've got to this discussion.

Lastly, Chief Frank Montagna (FDNY) wrote an article for the April 2008's Fire Engineering on Computer Simulation Aids. He discusses using computer simulation as well as reviewing a few of the products in the market (CommandSim, Fire Studio, and Code3D).

Jonathan and All,

I have received some money from our District to build our center. I am currently in the process of evaluating the system that I want to purchase. I am of course looking at Fire Studio and the Phoenix model but maybe there is something else out there that people like. I will check out the April '08 article too. In the mean time, if anyone has any advise or direction I would appreciate it!
