Virtual reality as part of preventive educational activity

The Fire Rescue Service of the South Bohemian region and Moravian-Silesian region uses a three-dimensional educational environment as part of preventive educational activities. Its involvement in the preparation of the population is primarily aimed at older pupils and students, but it can also reach other hard-to-reach population groups, especially adults. The FRS of the Moravian-Silesian region has been working for several years on the creation of educational programmes in the upcoming Health and Safety Center called Safety City. At České Budějovice fire station, they purchased HTC Vive Pro glasses with financial support, thanks to which they can use the created virtual game "Escape 112". The required level of preparedness of all residents can be better achieved through experiential education, where it is possible to safely experience dangerous situations.
