  Title Simulations and Serious Games for Firefighter Training: Users' Perspective Type Conference Article
  Year 2017 Publication Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Informatin Systems for Crisis Response And Management Abbreviated Journal Iscram 2017  
  Volume Issue Pages 868-878  
  Keywords Emergency management; firefighter; user; training; simulation; serious games  
  Abstract Simulation and serious games (SSG) are advocated as promising technologies supporting training in emergency management (EM). Based on an investigation of SSG use for fire fighter training in nine countries, this paper is examining key elements and success factors that can counteract potential obstacles and challenges of SSG implementation. Data comes from interviews and observations with users and responsible managers from user organizations. By contrasting the different incentives and views regarding the SSG use, this paper contributes to a better understanding of SSG integration into organizational practices. Only by connecting the local, organizational strategies and user requirements with technical values and concrete examples can the SSG usage be experienced as successful. This connection requirement is by far not obvious since values are formulated differently by the main stakeholders and the benefits at one organization are not necessarily the same as at another. In this context, the added values of SSG solutions need to be more explicitly connected to the goals of traditional classroom and live training.
