ExPod High Rise Fire Simulation

TELT provided simulation support to the Fire & Safety Division in the delivery of the first High Rise Fire simulation utilizing the JIBC’s ExPod simulation system. The simulation was a component of a high-rise fire management contract. The objective of the simulation was to provide learners an opportunity to manage a major high-rise fire incident requiring a complex command staff and a number of divisional officers who report to the commander.Learners practiced the supervision of multi-unit operations, conduct pre-incident planning, and deploy assigned resources in the context of multi- unit high-rise fire response.

Senior management from the Port Coquitlam Fire & Emergency Services commented that the scenario reflected accurately the intensity and responsibilities that an incident commander at a major high-rise fire incident would experience. They felt that the experience gained in the ExPod simulation was extremely beneficial.
