“We like using simulation because it allows us to start with a basic scenario where you can objectively evaluate a crew and constructively give them feedback. If the scenario is recorded for their review, they can watch themselves either meet those best practices or self-evaluate areas of improvement. Each student can be tested and evaluated at the same scenario, and it validates the training and testing. Students can make mistakes in a virtual reality world without injuring a patient, burning down a structure or doing damage to an emergency vehicle.” – Mike Clemens
Virtual reality simulators for fire fighting are the appropriate tools for presenting situations that can’t be reproduced during traditional “live” training. They help practicing complex and rare scenarios, such as in factories and vessels, and allow trainees to encounter circumstances as close as possible to real fire incidents, while eliminating the risk of injuries and burns.
Based on our unique computational fluid dynamics algorithms, our FireMeister series of simulators can train effectively and efficiently from one person to a group of six, through our three available editions: Single User (FireMeister Solo), Small Group (FireMeister Cell) and Large Group (FireMeister Team) using either Head Mounted Displays or our top of the line Holotrac-5 Virtual Environment.
It’s the only simulator in the world that utilizes real fire extinguishers with the same weight, build materials and handling that are active inside the virtual environment and are behaving exactly as the real ones, raising training to a new level.
Advanced Fire Modeling
Fire is a complex physical phenomenon whose behavior can be described and predicted utilizing a combination of scientific fields such as fluid dynamics, heat and mass transfer and combustion. FireMeister provides experience on fundamental fire dynamics based on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations, since:

Three Models to Choose From
The professional solution for single user training
Full CFD simulation
One Step Ahead
Easy to Setup
When high quality fire training in a limited space is fundamental, FireMeister Solo is the best solution for the case. Especially designed for vessels and factories ―where free space is sparse― it provides first responders a thorough step by step approach to fire-related safety procedures.
It comes with a variety of scenarios pre-installed for two main sectors ―naval and industrial― it also trains for safety procedures like fire alarms, emergency communications, CO2 release room evacuation etc.
Robust and mobile, it comes in an all-in-one configuration: head mounted display, computer, object tracking system, and fire extinguisher electronics all securely packed in a hard shell briefcase, ready to be safely stored after training, occupying only 3 m2 when deployed. Using best quality materials and electronics from industry leading companies, it ensures trouble-free long-lasting training periods for your personnel.
Based in our state of the art CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) algorithms, if offers the same quality and precision as our other two larger models, simulating from normal to rare situations like crude oil and chemical fires with realistic smoke production and accumulation.
360 Degree Solution
One user, knowledge for the whole team
In every session, all group can observe in an external monitor or TV the training in real time, learning the right moves before action.
Fast, realistic, immersive training

“VR technology is raising the bar in firefighter training while helping save lives and conserve valuable resources. The use of VR technology allows training for incidents that cannot easily be replicated or may be very costly to recreate, not to mention eliminating the hazards involved in live training.”
