ETC Simulation Awarded Contract for Fire Training Center at the Jiangsu Fire Brigade, China
SOUTHAMPTON, PA, USA, July 29, 2014 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation`s (OTC Pink: ETCC) (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division (“ETC Simulation”), located in Orlando, FL, announced today it has been awarded a contract by the Jiangsu Fire Brigade in China to deliver an ADMS training suite. The customized ADMS-Command system will be used to train for petrochemical and industrial emergency response.
The Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (“ADMS”) suite will include an On-Scene Incident Command Room with a 180-degree immersion theater screen and eight field unit positions. Within the training facility, an observer theater will be constructed inside the immersion room for briefings, training observation, and evaluation.
The customized system will be a full Chinese version of ADMS-Command including response vehicles and crews, casualties and bystanders, street signs, and street names, as well as a Chinese User Interface. In addition to these, new response vehicles will be added including ladder trucks, aerial platforms, high capacity water pumps, high capacity foam trucks, and an earthquake rescue truck.
The Jiangsu Fire Brigade will utilize ADMS to train for both petrochemical and industrial emergency response, and also with special attention given to large scale structural fires in high-rise buildings. To meet these requirements, ETC Simulation will develop a petrochemical factory.
“We welcome Jiangsu Fire Academy to our global user community, and are excited to expand our footprint within Asia as we strive to provide the best simulation training platform for emergency responders worldwide,” said Marco van Wijngaarden, President of ETC Simulation. “We just returned from the Design Review Meeting and the training facility has a fantastic layout. The observer theater will enhance the learning experience. With ADMS, Jiangsu will be able to train standard operating procedures for petrochemical and high-rise building fire incidents, and use all specialized vehicles as they have available in the field.”
