Virtual Reality EMS Training

Training is the key to fast, decisive, and effective response. First responders need the opportunities to practice their skills and keep calm and effective during any kind of emergency scenario. While traditional training can be cumbersome and cost-intensive, VR training offers a far more flexible alternative.

What is VR Training for First Responders?

Virtual Reality (VR) training provides an environment where first responders can immerse themselves in a wide range of highly realistic medical scenarios where they can practice vital protocols and developing critical decision making skills in a risk-free environment.


Using a VR training system, paramedics, EMTs, and other first responders can train for challenging situations like multi-casualty rescue scenarios to prepare for the challenge of controlling stress levels and honing quick decision making skills. SimX has created a comprehensive curriculum to deliver immersive training scenarios, see it here and get your program started today. 

How It Works

Equipment and Experience

During training, subjects don virtual reality headsets that bring all the sights and sounds from a true immersive experience. They are able to move around in a responsive environment that looks, sounds, and feels like the real thing.

Choose Your Scenario

Virtual Reality simulations can be customized to fit the training your teams need most. There is none of the logistical complexity of planning a traditional training exercise. Instead of doing difficult trainings once or twice a year because of time and funding restrictions, training exercises are available any time your team needs them.

Tailored Training for Different Types of First Responders

Every region in every part of the country is subject to different types of emergencies. One area may have to prepare for people trapped by flooding. Another needs to train for response to summer wildfires. A rural area may have little need to train for civil unrest, but strong reasons to train for severe winter storms. Teams in any area require practice for vital services such as Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).

SimX can create fully customized cases in just a few weeks, for around 1/10th the cost of the competition, providing any patient type, environment, or tool that a case would need.
