I really appreciate your comment, while this is part of our work, we also take great pride and satisfaction in hearing that it is making a real difference.

I am fortunate enough to mentor prospective officers through the ladder company officer component of their qualification program. This tool is a great tool to spur discussions and develop sound fireground practices. Ladder company operations, like many other operations in the fire service is a craft. Use this tool to hone your craft! BE SAFE...Scooter

thanks for the suggestion, if we continue development on this, we will certainly consider adding drafting.

what about adding draft operations to the pump sim

Comment by Jonathan Kaye on May 5, 2011 at 11:10pm
Thanks for the feedback, I'll have to see about changing the wording to make it clearer.  I would love to do more scenarios, I'm just getting slammed with other work, but I appreciate you making the comment so it stays on our to do list!

Also additional pumping simulations, multiple limes, relay pumping, drafting, rural water supply with drafting from multiple portable ponds, etc.

Did the pump operator simulation and thought it was very good except for the 360 tour. Had trouble with the compartment check, it would have been less confusing if it said compartments/equipment. I kept looking for a hidden compartment of some kind instead of the raised deck gun.

Anyone who has been using the bus simulation have some comments? I can see a good amount of usage but I would love to hear what you like or don't like about it (and what you'd like in the future).

The latest simulation, a highway bus accident with triaging, is now live in the Fire Engineering simulations area. We hope you find it useful!
