On 17 May 2016 the Municipality of Ajdovščina (FB13) organized a training course for professional firefighters in the town of Ajdovščina. The main focus of the training course was the monitoring system together with the monitoring equipment, that was established through the Holistic Project. Following the general presentation of the system and the equipment, the participants were educated about the functionalities and practicalities of the system, which were all presented and tested also in practice. The participants learnt how the monitoring system could help them in pre-fire, fire and post-fire activities, how it can improve the efficacy of their interventions and how it can facilitate their work. Due to the complexity of the monitoring system and constant system improvements, additional individual trainings are scheduled in the following period, so as to anchor the knowledge, to deepen the system applicability and to strengthen its usability.
