ETC Simulation Contracted to Deliver ADMS-Command Training System to Florida State College at Jacksonville
SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., USA, March 19, 2013 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation`s (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, FL, has been awarded a contract by Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) for an Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS(TM)) system.
ADMS is a comprehensive virtual reality system used to train all levels of emergency management, including on scene incident command, command teams, emergency operations and command post staff.
An ADMS component is being added to the FSCJ curriculum to provide students with valuable hands-on experience in a safe, structured environment. Students will increase their understanding of learned theory by experiencing emergencies and disasters in a realistic and interactive way, while at the same time improving critical decision making skills and building confidence to apply these skills to real world events.
FSCJ will use the ADMS system in its Military, Public Safety, and Security Division (MPSS). “Northeast Florida is a natural laboratory for manmade and natural challenges, such as maritime and port security, big sports events with attendant safety and security issues, hurricanes, floods, wildfires, and other things. For our students to be able to investigate effective response options on ADMS means that as practitioners they`ll be poised to spring into action when calamities strike,” said Dr. Paul Herman, Dean of Academics and Student Success at FSCJ. “Further, some of ADMS` more tactical scenarios, such as active shooters and aircraft fires, can be used to build synergies across the College`s academic programs and its Law Enforcement and Firefighting academies.”
FSCJ was able to procure the ADMS system through funds made available by the United States Department of Education (USDOE) Carl D. Perkins Federally Funded Grant.
