January 7 '08: In New Jersey, NorthJersey.com reported that local EMS, fire and police officials will begin to train for hazardous driving conditions using a computer program developed by New York-based Doron Precision Systems. The simulators will be installed later this year at the Law & Public Safety Institute in Mahwah, NJ.
Bergen County officials said they spent about $300,000 for the two simulators. "The simulators will be included in the training curricula for all police, fire and emergency workers in the county," the website read. Details of the simulator for law enforcement officials include "features found in a police vehicle: automatic transmission, two-way radio, siren and light controls."For fire and EMS agencies, the simulator will resemble a dashboard of a fire truck, complete with all the controls. Doron was founded in 1970 and has worked to develop educational electronic systems as well as education television systems, language laboratories and film-based driving simulation systems.
