Going Above and Beyond for our First Responders
A Case Study in Experience-Based Upskilling Training from Our Work with NFPA
Challenge: Develop the right upskilling training to help first responders acquire the skills they need to protect life and property in a safe environment, while still providing the real-world experiences they need to learn how to stay safe.
The award-winning team at AllenComm developed the training with the aim to:
- Scale to meet the demand of training thousands of first responders
- Innovate to create an immersive digital learning environment to safely train them with real-world skills
- Impact to successfully use digital training to provide the real-world skills that would make a positive difference in the communities served
The team would not only successfully fulfill their request but take it to the next level by using 360 footage and other immersive learning techniques.

“Responders have the continual challenge of working with evolving structural fires, including smaller lot sizes, more flammable, faster burning materials, open floor plans, newer technologies, and evolving fuel loads. AllenComm did a great job developing a nonlinear, interactive responder safety program geared to help educate firefighters in the science and methodology of NFPA’s 1700 Guide to Structural Firefighting. This course will be a valuable resource to our emergency responder community nationwide.”
