We present the VROnSite platform that enables immersive training
of first responder on-site squad leaders. Our training platform is
fully immersive, entirely untethered to ease use and provides two
means of navigation - abstract and natural walking - to simulate
stress and exhaustion, two important factors for decision making.
With the platform´s capabilities, we close a gap in prior art for first
responder training. Our research is closely interlocked with stakeholders
from fire brigades and paramedics to gather early feedback
in an iterative design process. In this paper, we present our first
research results, which are the system´s design rationale, the single
user training prototype and results from a preliminary user study.
