The Savoie SDIS inaugurated its virtual reality platform yesterday. This training tool is equipped with many giant screens to simulate all the interventions that firefighters may face. Many other innovations were presented:
– The Rhino robot can access steep places subject to high risks (collapse, thermal or chemical exposure, etc.).
– Digitization of the ambulance environment. This technology allows doctors to interact with field teams and the victim(s) via video using a tablet.
– A device for recreating communication networks when they are insufficient or have been destroyed (natural disaster, attack or large-scale event).
– New helmets as well as new more ergonomic breathing apparatus.
