Fire simulator vehicle puts Texas trainees in hot seat

Battalion Chief Don Groves expected the simulator to provide experience that could otherwise only be gained in the field

WICHITA FALLS, Texas — Firefighters are often called to respond to life and death situations without much more than the equipment and training they're provided.

The Texas Engineering Extension Service hopes to give those emergency responders a leg up in those situations with the help of a state-of-the-art driving simulator. Members of the Wichita Falls Fire Department got a taste of that training this week through a demo of the service.

Battalion Chief Don Groves, who oversees the department's training, expected the simulator to provide experience that could otherwise only be gained in the field.
