Technology Solutions Provider FutureShield Inc. is excited to announce an expanded partnership with XRV Simulation. Moving forward FutureShield will be XVR’s exclusive Canadian partner. FutureShield has been successfully offering XVR to fire departments across Canada and will now offer VR training to police forces in our country. This will give an additional group of emergency responders access to cutting-edge training programs.
The XVR product platform is a flexible, user-friendly, cost-effective solution to boost training curriculums using virtual reality. FutureShield is happy to reach an additional group of first responders and the police program focuses things that are important to that group including situational awareness/analysis, incident command, crowd control and evidence collection.
The fire training program will continue to be supported by FutureShield’s service partner, DriveWise, and their expertise will be leveraged for police clients. They will create scenarios and 3D environments specific for fire and police departments to ensure the potential of XVR is maximized for users. Their expertise in tri-services response training and simulated driver training has been demonstrated with multiple clients including a successful training venture at Ottawa International Airport.
“As XVR’s exclusive Canadian partner we deliver first-rate training for first responders and are thrilled to be able to add XVR for Canadian Police forces to our portfolio,” says Cynthia Weeden, Founder and President of FutureShield Inc. “XVR has been proven as an effective training program for fire departments in Canada and now with international success with police departments we couldn’t be happier to bring another tool to make our country’s emergency response stronger.”
“We are very excited to expand our partnership with FutureShield Inc. towards the police forces across Canada. Cynthia and her team have proven their worth, time and time again. We look forward to seeing their progress in the police market,” says Joost Beerthuis, CEO of XVR Simulation. “Having a trustworthy partner is pivotal to keep providing local support and knowledge and is essential in our efforts to provide police forces around the world with the option to start training with virtual reality simulation.”
