Raleigh Fire Department Goes High-tech
The Raleigh Fire Department is strengthening its training program. A new virtual reality program and a simulation training device are now standard equipment at the Keeter Training Center.
The 43rd Recruit Academy is the first class to use the new technology. Instructors say the approach saves the department money without posing any risk to valuable fire engine apparatus. It also makes sense in that most young recruits have grown up in a technology-driven world.
