Vector Solutions Partners with City of St. Charles Fire Department to Create Realistic Training Video

Sept. 21, 2017—It’s Emergency Preparedness Month. And with recent hurricanes, we do not need reminders of how important it is to stay safe and be prepared, especially for our first responders.

In high-stakes environments, proper training is crucial and can be the difference between saving a life—and a life-changing accident. The problem is that realistic training is extremely expensive.

Technology like Scenario-Based Learning Videos, Virtual Reality, and Microlearning is helping bridge this gap, optimizing training time and increasing efficiency in the field.

Vector Solutions, a leader in eLearning and performance support, recently partnered with The City of St. Charles Fire Department to create realistic, contextual team training video during their actual drills. The result was an award-winning course video that is changing the way first responders learn.

Vector Solutions, a leader in eLearning and performance support, recently earned the coveted Brandon Hall Group Silver Award for Excellence for Learning and Development for “Best Use of Video for Learning” category regarding its brand Target Solutions’ NFPA 1410 course video created in collaboration with The City of St. Charles Fire Department. The submission was titled “Vector Solutions and The City of St. Charles Fire Department Join Forces to Optimize Training with Scenario-Based Learning.” 

Shot on location in St. Charles, Mo., and Land O’ Lakes, Fla., the production was aided with the full cooperation of the St. Charles Fire Department and Pasco County Fire Rescue to bring the series to life. TargetSolutions and sister company RedVector, subsidiaries of parent company Vector Solutions, assembled a team to storyboard the series, capture the drills on video, and then develop the 14-course training package that was formally released this past March. The final product: a series of stunning training courses driven by groundbreaking video demonstrations of the most commonly encountered fireground evolutions.
