Second Incident Command suite opens at the College

In response to feedback from our customers and through growing demand, the Fire Service College has created a second, fully equipped, multi-purpose Incident Command suite that consists of a control room, an anteroom and four simulation pods.

State of the art, two way, audio-visual equipment has been incorporated into the control room and pods to enable communication between the commanders, learners and role players in order to create a realistic training environment.

Through our close partnership with XVR Simulations, the College can provide training that incorporates a wide range of scenarios and challenges for learners to tackle. By utilising XVRs full range of applications; XVR On-Scene, XVR Resource Manager and Crisis Media, the College is able to offer fully immersive training from a Fire Service one-pump attendance incident all the way up to large scale, multi-agency strategic exercise.

Our Incident Command Manager, Jim Martin said, “The creation of this suite represents a considerable investment in the Fire Service College by our parent company, Capita plc, and demonstrates the confidence that both they and our customers have in our ability to deliver high quality training.

“The Fire Service College now has two Incident Command Suites with facilities comprising a total of two large classrooms, two indoor command units, two control rooms and eight simulation pods. The Fire Service College can meet all of your Incident Command, Leadership, Team Building, Business Continuity and Resilience needs"
