Ariz. firefighters design highly detailed simulation program
By James Gilbert
YUMA, Ariz. — Firefighters with the Yuma Fire Department have created and are using a computer-based simulation training program to help them hone their decision-making processes while at the scene of a fire.
"It is a broad-based learning tool with applications for almost everyone in the department," said YFD spokesman Mike Erfert. "This allows us to provide the experience without having to actually go to the scene of fire."
