As promised, below is a link to CPR learning reference. It is tailored for Orlando residents, however, you simply put in your zipcode and it will find tons of CPR classes nearby. Get the card and SAVE A LIFE! (Half of my saves last year had bystander CPR, it works!)
Also, I recommend a PHYSICAL, HANDS ON CLASS. CPR is a VIOLENT but LIFESAVING SKILL. It is easy to do but you must understand the amount of pressure necessary to squeeze the heart, an online class won't be able to do that.
The GoFundMe continues! I've released a video targeting "experience" to help shed light on what the simulator is focused on. Also, there is a link below to the GoFundMe. Please share the video with your network, thanks everyone!

Note - That sign explains that I am alone at this company currently and yet my product looks as good or better than million/billion dollar companies.

I just finished getting back from ITSEC -- I managed to get a booth...wayyy in the back. It has been some time in my life since I have felt so small and yet, I was filled with a strange confidence to know that my simulator looks as good as many products put out by million and billion dollar companies. I met some amazing people and amazing contacts and only time will tell where this goes. Also, I will soon have some news regarding Fire Rescue East (I plan on both attending AND selling the simulator there)

MAKER FAIRE! Come to the Central FL Fairgrounds and say Hello! I am in the Opportunity Building, Space OS6! I've finally manage to put together the hardware into a portable package and I have created a new demo specifically for MakerFaire called "Escape the Fire" to help teach kids critical survival skills!
A quick update: For the past months, I have been building scenarios and a virtual pump panel in the Unreal 4 Game engine. This website is more of a landing page than anything else however my contact information (Blake@TheLiveSimulator.com) is here as well as the link above to the articles, which contain the research and though process behind the Simulator.
August 24, 2017 - Happy Birthday to Me!
If you are reading this, the GoFundMe is LIVE. If you are looking to learn more about the simulator, you can read some of the articles (up top to the right) that explain the thought process. I also have some screenshots below. Feel free to shoot me an email Blake@TheLiveSimulator.com. Please share the link below to the GoFundMe Page!

MAKER FAIRE was a HUGE success. Kids loved the "Escape From Fire" demo remarking how "real" it looked. Two girls, around age 5, actually cried, despite me prepping them. (Dad Blake felt pretty bad about it actually. But the important thing is that we are preparing kids with an experience that one day might save their lives! Also, I was able to move through a single kid in about 30 seconds, which means you can do an entire class in about 15 minutes. (Even less if you give instructions to a group vs. each child.)
Keep watching, I'm going to try to get into ITSEC at the last minute as well.
