“NYU has done a phenomenal job of taking difficult information and putting it into a format that is easily understandable, deliverable to the people in the fire service, and in a means that can impact what’s going on every day in fire departments.”
“The ALIVE training has allowed our firefighters to benefit from recent research on subjects in the fire service. Without ALIVE, dissemination of this knowledge would be delayed, as we would have to wait for outside instructors to bring the information to the department.”
“ALIVE can save lot of money for fire departments. But most important benefit of ALIVE is it will make firefighters safer by educating them about the threats. We want our firefighters to come home every night and be at the top of their game.”
“We used ALIVE in conjunction with our classroom and hands-on training. ALIVE allowed us to focus the discussions on the topics which firefighters do not understand. It worked great!”
“Firefighters need to understand how fires behave in structures and how assessing fire, heat, smoke, and flow path can help them make better strategic and tactical decisions. ALIVE gives us opportunities to make mistakes without having to suffer real-life consequences.”
“ALIVE is a great data-driven learning to complement existing training programs and help volunteer firefighters gain more training at no cost.”
