A Virtual Training Platform for Real Emergencies

The FAAC Pump Operations Simulator is a full-size replica of a Fire Engine Pump Panel. Its realistic components and functionality provide safe, economical and highly realistic training on pump panel operation in a controlled and repeatable environment.

The simulator is intended to supplement pump training on a real fire apparatus and performs many of the same functions. It allows reinforcement of hands-on pump operations training for new and existing pump operators in a controlled, cost efficient and fail-safe manner. Unlike traditional pump units that require the use of thousands of gallons of water, FAAC’s pump panel simulator does not require water, reducing the environmental impact and allowing you to conduct training even when water usage restrictions and bans are enforced.
