Virtual Reality Immersive Education Presenters Guide

Seeing is believing, and live side-by-sides have helped viewers understand flashover and the unparalleled value of home fire sprinklers. But live fire demonstrations are not always practical.

Thanks to a grant from State Farm, HFSC is taking this important educational strategy to the next level with live fire video in immersive virtual reality with user-controlled 360 degree views. Use this new technology to create a side-by-side experience that is personal, powerful and memorable.
