At the end of 2018 Estonian Rescue Board (ERB) held a tender to find a partner for their VR training environment “Fire Hazardous House”. For the project, a full-scale house would be needed to be modelled; inside the house, the user would move around and solve 14 different situations to prevent a potential fire.
The solution would be targeted to youth and children. Namely, ERB has fire prevention department that invites school groups to their centres, visits schools and fairs. The project was completed with a record of 5 weeks from the start, co-operation with the client was astoundingly smooth.
