LA Fire Brigade improve driver training with VigilVanguard

Vigil Solutions : 26 August, 2009  (Application Story)
Driver training system based on in-vehicle assessment and driver behaviour analysis is to be used by the Los Angeles County Fire Department for improving driver safety
Vigil Solutions has announced the recent purchase of the company's VigilVanguard Driver Training System by the Los Angeles County Fire Department for each of its 22 battalions.

A unique training system designed to improve driver performance and reduce the number and severity of accidents involving fire department personnel. This highly-portable, self-contained system transforms any fire department vehicle into a mobile training platform, that is more effective and less expensive than a simulator.

VigilVanguard generates real-time video, graphs and other relevant data from the actual vehicle that the firefighter drives every day, giving trainers the ability to provide meaningful, unbiased feedback to individuals in order to promote positive changes in their driving behavior. This differs dramatically from a typical driver simulator since training occurs in real-world situations on their community roads - and the system can collect data even during fire calls. As a result, the training is 100% applicable to their jobs. Since drivers are trained in their vehicles while on shift, vehicles are left in service, eliminating the need for attending offsite training in an overtime situation, thus providing a substantial savings in personnel and overall training costs.

Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel will provide training on a per-station basis. The initial round of training will continue for the next several months.
'We are excited and honoured to be working with the Los Angeles County Fire Department to implement this project,' said Vigil Solutions President Mark Anderson. 'Their dedication to continuing improving and providing quality training across such a large organization is impressive.'
