    Hazmat VR Promo video cover Schedule Free Class HAZMAT VIRTUAL VR First Responder Training

    First responders are the core of a community’s HAZMAT team.

    They need to be prepared for worst-case scenarios. Hazmat Virtual is virtual reality first responder training for individuals and teams to practice their response to incidents with more than 80 hazardous chemicals and liquids from the safety of the firehouse. Training is free and earns CEUs. And we’ll send you the VR headsets so your team can fight fires so real that participants say they can smell the smoke.
