Find out what a firefighting term means — just by asking Alexa.
Imagine. You're on the volunteer recruit programme. It's Tuesday night, you're at home and you're using your laptop to go through a module online.
You read a term that you're not familiar with. Instead of searching online for a glossary definition, you ask Alexa. Here's how it works:
You: Alexa, open Luminate Alexa: Welcome to Luminate. What term would you like me to explain? You: What's a volt? Alexa: Volt. Measures electrical pressure represented by the symbol V.

One thousand watts equals one kilowatt. To listen to the explanation again, say repeat. What other term would you like me to explain? You: Close.
We're wired for speech; it's a natural way for us to ask questions and learn. So if you get stumped by a term or acronym, there’s no need to Google, just ask Alexa and let Luminate guide you.
