Lakeside Firefighters Train on High-Tech Driving Simulator

Johnstown -

Lakeside Fire crews have been using a high-tech driving simulator to log some required driver training. The simulator which was purchased with a regional training grant is on loan from San Diego Fire-Rescue. Firefighters from Lakeside and other surrounding agencies have been rotating through the simulator which is being housed at the Lake Jennings fire station (fs3). The simulator allows drivers to be challenged  in various response scenarios and apparatus configurations.

The driving simulator is housed in this large trailer

Engineer Steve Schleif is behind the wheel as Firefighter Shawn McKenna runs the simulator.
