Putting our Virtual Reality Emergency Training on show

Back in September, we showcased the virtual reality tour of our purpose-built Simulation facility to an intrigued audience at the Emergency Services Show 2018.

With the largest number of visitors this year to the UK’s leading annual showcase of the blue light sector, we were excited to show off our tailored approach to training. This includes virtual reality scenarios of a road traffic accident, a hotel room, nursery, car crash and street scene.

Liz Puffer, Co-Director, went along to the two day event in Birmingham’s NEC to demonstrate how with the aid of Simulation, we can recreate an immersive emergency situation, that is as close to the real thing as possible.

“It was great to share a 360 view of our fantastic simulation areas with visitors, we really wanted to give show attendees a taste of what makes our training so effective.”

Although In Safe Hands started in 2006, it was in 2016 that we took our training to the next level, investing in our specialist training facility. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive since  then and we are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to engage the senses through simulation, to make training memorable and effective.

Tim Puffer, Co- Director, said:

“First Aid training and Health and Safety training are the core bread and butter courses of our business, but our First Response Emergency Care (FREC) courses that are now available at levels 3,4 and 5,were the driving force for us exhibiting to this event.”

The Emergency Services Show 2018 gave us the perfect platform to show the nation that there is more to Cornwall than just holidays, clotted cream and pasties, and we have come away with some very interesting prospects for the future, so watch this space!
