CommandSim to demonstrate the world’s first iPad app for rapidly building fire training simulations



PHILADELPHIA - July 27, 2012CommandSim, an industry leader in software tools for fire and emergency services training, and 2012 corporate sponsor of FireRescue’s Company Officer of the Year award, announced today the release of its SimsUshare Mobile software on the iPad, for rapidly creating fire training simulations based on one’s own photos. SimsUshare Mobile for the iPad is the world’s first iPad mobile app for creating fire training simulations.

CommandSim will be in booth #8018 at Fire-Rescue International 2012 to give participants a hands-on demonstration on the iPad, Android, and Windows/Mac platforms, among CommandSim’s other award-winning simulation software. The app is available in iTunes immediately through this link.

One customer notes “SimsUshare is the future of fire simulation, utilizing the common devices of today with an easy to use interface at a price that any department can afford.” It can be used to enhance drills and tabletops with local buildings and structures, as well as to incorporate in promotional exams and all-hazards incident management (AHIMT) training and red and blue card certification programs.

“During my career in the fire service, I have been committed to helping train firefighters and officers to perform their dangerous jobs safely and competently,” explained Lt. Jim Murphy (Ret.), Director of Training for CommandSim and 32-year veteran of Orange County Fire Rescue (Winter Park, FL). “I’ve seen firsthand how simulations truly make a difference on the fireground, but the typical time and expense in creating them has been an obstacle in their widespread adoption and use. With an affordable solution like SimsUshare Mobile operating across a range of devices, now virtually everyone can bring the benefits of simulation into the classroom—and take those lessons out to the field.”

Jonathan Kaye, PhD, President of CommandSim, echoes Lt. Murphy’s sentiment, and adds “the community’s reception to SimsUshare Mobile has been incredible. We are especially excited to release our iPad version, to complement the Android, Windows, and Mac versions, because we know it is becoming the mobile device of choice for delivering fire training.”

Dr. Kaye states that the app is currently available for purchase on iPad, Android, Windows, and Mac platforms. He did not disclose when the iPhone version would be available for purchase, except to say that it is forthcoming, and that those interested can sign up at to be notified when it becomes available.
