Avrio Analytics releases Forge, its augmented reality (AR) training for firefighters. Forge provides hands-on training in digital, but realistic environments that simulate real emergencies. Utilizing artificial intelligence, biometric tracking and AR, Forge gives firefighters the size-up, communication skills and situational awareness needed to respond when real emergencies arise.

The Forge system is customizable and can be used to simulate a variety of scenarios in realistic and safe settings when actual buildings aren't open, coordination of multiple fire companies is difficult, or repetition is needed prior to live drill training. Detailed scenarios simulated through the training include fires, building size ups—both residential and commercial, chemical spills, vehicle accidents, and triage.

Forge is currently being utilized by fire departments including Golden Fire-Rescue in Golden, Colo., and Platteville-Gilcrest Fire Protection District in Gilcrest, Colo. “We used to do dry erase board lessons or random structure drills as part of our training. We also had a limited two-dimensional software program, but it wasn’t doing well for us,” said Lieutenant Joe Bechina of Platteville-Gilcrest Fire Protection District. “With Forge we now have a more inclusive program that makes training easy and everybody loves using it.”

Users don one of the lightest AR headsets in the industry and carry a handheld device. The simulation places the user into the training simulation where they can move through a scene. The instructor can follow along with another headset or device. The system can also include multiple users in one simulation. Forge allows an officer or instructor to create scenarios and then review the outcomes to ensure that vital size-up information is helping paint a detailed picture for the needed situational awareness.
