ETC Simulation Contracted to Update ADMS Training Center for Korean National Fire Service Academy
SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., USA, May 9, 2013 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (OTC Pink: ETCC) (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, Fla., has been contracted by the Korean National Fire Service Academy (“KNFSA”) to extend their Maintenance Plan for their Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (“ADMS”). The KNFSA’s customized ADMS-Command was first delivered in 2007, and the extension of their annual maintenance plan will ensure continued optimal performance of their simulator.
The KNFSA currently possesses a customized ADMS system featuring a nearly 200 square mile geo-typical South Korean city with response vehicles that reflect those used by local emergency responders. The KNFSA system is used to provide advanced training for all Korean Fire Service Officers. ADMS allows trainees to gain true-to-life experience and build confidence in managing incidents that cannot be trained for live, including low and high-rise structural firefighting, industrial and hazardous materials fires, traffic accidents, urban search and rescue and mountain wildfires.
“We are pleased that the KNFSA continues to put their trust in both their ADMS system and in ETC Simulation.” said Marco van Wijngaarden, President of ETC Simulation. “Since 2007, they have been able to offer their students a higher level of training through the use of ADMS, and the extension of their contract demonstrates their commitment to provide the best training experience possible.”
