ETC Simulation to Deliver ADMS-Command to Minneapolis – St. Paul Airport as They Expand Their ADMS Training Center
SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., USA, February 27, 2013 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, FL, has entered into an agreement with Minneapolis – St. Paul International Airport (MSP) to add ADMS-Command Training for Airport Emergency Management to their existing Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS(TM)) system. MSP has been an ADMS customer for over 11 years and currently uses ADMS-Drive. This is the first airport with a complete ADMS Training Center.
“Our ADMS Training Center will help us provide a complete training program,” said Kyle Scapple, Systems Administrator for Minneapolis – St. Paul International Airport. “We want to ensure all of our employees receive thorough training and are properly prepared for emergency situations. With this expansion, not only will trainees be able to practice processes like operational driving skills, but now they can work on incident command and emergency response.”
The current ADMS -Drive system in use by MSP includes a full cab vehicle simulator networked with multiple desktop stations to train airport drivers, ARFF crews, and snow plow operators. MSP uses ADMS to practice operational procedures such as snow removal. The adjustable weather conditions in the system allow for training in a wide variety of environmental conditions. Besides snow, trainees can practice in low visibility conditions caused by rain or fog.
“This expansion makes Minneapolis – St. Paul International Airport the first with a full ADMS Simulator range” said Marco van Wijngaarden, President of ETC Simulation. “Through our long-standing relationship, MSP has been able to train their airport drivers with ADMS-Drive and will now be able to train their emergency responders in a variety of large-scale incidents. We are glad they chose to expand their system and look forward to continuing our relationship.”
