ETC Simulation Awarded Contract To Deliver ADMS Training System To New Taipei City Emergency Response Command Academy, Taiwan
Southampton, Pa., USA, April 30, 2018 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation business unit, located in Orlando, FL, has been awarded a contract to deliver an Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS™) system to New Taipei City Fire Department in Taiwan.
The ADMS-Command system will be installed at the new Emergency Response Command Academy (ERCA) in New Taipei City. This multi-level command training center consists of an On-Scene Command Room, Silver Level Command Post, and Gold Level Command Post. It allows training at all levels, from fire fighters up to strategic decision makers.
The scenarios include structural fires, road traffic accidents, Mass Transportation (MRT) accidents, chemical factory incidents, fuel depot fires, aircraft crashes, and more. Aside of several geotypical terrains, a section of New Taipei City will be modeled. Fire trucks and other emergency response vehicles with their crews will also be localized for training realism.
“Working with a professional team is a pleasure. We are excited to have ADMS and looking forward to building up the best incident command training center in Taiwan.” said Chief David from New Taipei City Fire Department.
“ADMS stands out from the competition because of the quality of simulation and its ease of operation,” states Marco van Wijngaarden, President of ETC Simulation. “We are excited to work with New Taipei City Fire Department and to contribute to the Department’s critical training mission.”
ADMS™ is a high-fidelity Virtual Reality Simulation Training Platform that comprises multiple products including Incident Command training from technical to strategic level (ADMS-Command), emergency response and force protection specific to a military environment (ADMS-Airbase), firefighting techniques and tactics (ADMS-Fire), driver training and vehicle operation (ADMS-ARFF and ADMS-Drive) and police operations, crowd management and riot control (ADMS-Police). ETC’s signature True Simulation Technology blends physics-based simulation, embedded artificial intelligence, accurate animations, realistic graphics, ambient sounds, and vehicle controls to totally immerse trainees in the exercise. ADMS enables first responders and emergency managers to prepare at all levels of response in a safe, economical and environmentally-conscious way.
