The team behind VIRASS

Professionalism through experience

Save lives – via training with live images.
Because images stay in your mind.

Safety is more than just a concept

Saving and protecting lives is the top priority of a firefighter at the risk of his or her own life.

VIRASS’ innovative security concept was created to facilitate the work of rescue teams and leave nothing to chance.

The idea came from Volker Sahage who has been a professional firefighter for more than 25 years. In his long career, he has saved the lives of numerous people. In the process, he has come to realize that escape and rescue plans do not fulfill their intended functions. Instead of leading people safely out of a danger zone, they tend to confuse them.

Volker Sahage wants to share his knowledge and experience. Together with a strong team of professional firefighters, IT specialists and qualified engineers, he developed VIRASS, the Virtual Rescue Assistant.
