Review of Fire Emergency Training using Virtual Reality

9 pagesPublished: May 26, 2024


The severe destruction brought on by building fires is sometimes ascribed to several issues, including incomplete information and delayed decision-making, both of which can cause a situation to quickly escalate and make it more difficult to minimize the damage. Emergency evacuation exercises are essential for lessening the impacts of fires, but it's vital to remember that every building fire has a different set of challenges depending on the location, origin, and consequences of the fire. Because of this, utilizing specialized fire safety strategies and training programs may considerably boost the probability of effective mitigation and reduce the repercussions of these unforeseeable catastrophes. This essay offers a thorough analysis of cutting-edge innovations and less hazardous techniques that may be used to successfully reduce building fires. The intent is to contribute to the exploration and creation of more effective and sustainable fire safety measures and limiting the environmental impact by investigating and evaluating these cutting-edge approaches. The article will also go through conventional fire training techniques and give a thorough comparison with virtual reality (VR) fire emergency training methods, looking at the advantages and disadvantages of each strategy in terms of efficiency, expense, and accessibility.
