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.
Hello! I'm Carli, a girl originally from Ohio, who could not be more proud to call Raleigh home the last 12+ years. By day, I work at SAS Institute but when I'm not working, I'm a mom to an amazing boy and 2 dogs. In my free time, I love to stay active working out, playing sports, traveling, crafting, attending a sports game/concert, or shopping!
