ETC Simulation Sponsored ADMS Training Day to Benefit Orlando Police Department
SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., September 22, 2011 — Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (OTCQB: ETCC) (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, FL, recently hosted a complimentary full day of emergency management training to benefit the Orlando Police Department (OPD) in recognition of National Preparedness Month. On September 19, 2011, the local first responders visited the ADMS Orlando Innovation Center to rehearse on-scene incident command skills and off-scene command post activities using the Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS™). This annual event allows local agencies to better prepare for and mitigate potential disasters. This year’s simulation exercise, developed in conjunction with the OPD’s Emergency Response Team, included a citywide, multiple incident scenario which required full agency response. Many levels of the OPD command team participated in the training which incorporated the ADMS virtual reality system using the 180? Immersion Theater, individual Command Stations, and a remote Command Post.
Captain Metzger, Special Operations Division and Emergency Response Team Commander of the Orlando Police Department stated, “We are excited to once again be part of ETC Simulation’s National Training Day. This one day each year gives us the opportunity to train, as a coordinated team, for incidents we wouldn’t be able to train for otherwise. This year’s exercise was aimed at enhancing our readiness in the event of a multi-incident, city-wide emergency here in Orlando. As with all training, the more realistic the exercise, the more benefit you receive. The level of realism within the ADMS system puts our team under the stress you would expect in a real-life incident, which in turn elicits field-like decisions and responses. I would personally like to thank ETC Simulation for allowing us to be part of their yearly commitment to preparedness, and for helping us meet our readiness objectives here at home.”
