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.
