As a trainer, I recognize that the big challenge is to communicate with my trainees, especially in the simulation “fire container”. When the trainees remain outside they cannot benefit from what happens inside. With APPI-Com, it is possible to interact with the trainees OUTSIDE and INSIDE buildings: the exercise can be heard by all! The training sessions are much more effective and debriefings much more accurate.
The very small size of APPI-Com allows it to be placed directly in the APPI hood or under the fireman’s jacket: no discomfort for the wearer who quickly forgets the presence of the radio terminal. Finally, the reserve team can be waiting in "Listen-Only" mode and listen to the others’ conversations and instructions, or even intervene if needed: everyone is aware of the situation on the ground.
