Fighting Fires on Designing Worlds

You can now see our exciting – and very moving – show about firefighting on the web as we pay a visit to the region of Aero Pines, to see Cindy Bolero and her amazing team of firefighters at work.

Aero Pines Park, as a region, has many of the features of a National Park (including a range of exciting leisure activities), but what we looked at in the show is the training for emergency services that is also a feature of the region, and exploring the ways in which Second Life and virtual worlds offers training potential for people working in hazardous situations.

Firefighters - and Commemoration
Firefighters – and Commemoration

Among other things, we see how a team tackles a fire in a restaurant – a very practical demonstration! We also look at the stair climb that Cindy has created, which commemorates the firefighters who lost their lives on September 11th, 2001, in the attack on the World Trade Center in New York, and which has become a place of commemoration of all the victims of that appalling day – and of all firefighters who have lost their lives in the course of their duties. Based on the real life stairclimb tributes, it forms a very moving experience.
