In one embodiment, a system for simulating emergency events includes: a signal generator operatively coupleable to one or more detectors; and a controller operably coupled to the signal generator and configured to cause the signal generator to: generate one or more synthetic signals based at least in part on data comprising one or more of: trainee identity, trainee role, synthesized data, and one or more measurements taken during a simulation; and communicate the synthetic signal(s) to the detector(s) by injecting the synthetic signals) directly into a position of a receive path of the detector(s) that is upstream of signal processing electronics of the detector(s) and downstream of a sensor of the detector(s). The synthetic signal(s) is/are waveform signals representative of at least one emergency event; and the synthetic signahs) is/are utilized to mimic conditions during emergency event(s) and under particular emergency conditions. Corresponding methods and computer program prodcuts are disclosed.
