ETC Simulation Delivers ADMS Training System to Montgomery Fire Rescue
Southampton, Pa., USA, September 20, 2017 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation business unit, located in Orlando, FL, has delivered an Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS™) system to Montgomery Fire Rescue, in Montgomery, Alabama. The ADMS system was purchased with funding awarded through the Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG).
The ADMS-COMMAND training system will be used to train Incident Command skills to members of the Montgomery Fire Department.
ADMS provides an immersive simulation training environment and will allow for training in many different scenarios, including structural fires, vehicle and aircraft accidents, hazardous material spills, active shooter events, and flooding and other natural disasters where rescue is involved. The system features ETC’s Signature Simulation Technology including the Scene Builder, which allows the user to import custom sounds, images, and videos into the simulation, providing more flexibility with scenario generation.
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, photo-realistic graphics, ambient sounds, vehicle controls, and motion platforms 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.
