Environmental Tectonics Corporation hosts Advanced Disaster Management Simulator users’ conference in Orlando
SOUTHAMPTON, Pa. — Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s Simulation Division today announced the success of the 7th Annual ADMS Users’ Conference.
On November 26 and 27, worldwide users of ADMS, ETC’s Advanced Disaster Management Simulator, gathered at ETC Simulation’s facility in Orlando, Florida, for the 7th Annual ADMS Users’ Conference. Conference attendees from several of the world’s premier training institutions, major international airports and fire departments came together to share training experiences, discuss best practices to maximize their ADMS training programs, experience the latest generation of ADMS, and get hands on with ADMS-ARFF, ETC’s new Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting Vehicle Simulator. The conference also supported users in coordinating and developing a common wish list for future simulation capabilities.
One conference attendee said, “The conference has been great. It’s given us all a chance to develop ideas together with the ADMS developers and get immediate feedback.”
With the great success of this conference and the recent addition to the ADMS customer base of organizations such as the Hong Kong Fire Services Department and the Dusseldorf Fire Brigade, as well as several other high- profile agencies that will become ADMS customers in 2008, ETC expects the next Users’ Conference to take the ADMS Community to a level that is unparalleled in the emergency disaster management training arena.
ADMS is a high fidelity interactive team training simulation platform that offers a proven methodology to provide realistic cost-effective synthetic incident and disaster management experience. Since 1995 ADMS has been used to train emergency responders around the world to better prepare to respond to and mitigate incidents. By presenting engaging, real-world environments and stressful scenarios, ADMS enables response and rescue personnel to perform and enhance team and individual skill sets at all levels of response. ADMS bridges the gap between table-top exercises and real world experience, and rapidly advances the effective coordinated response of multi-agency and multi- jurisdictional emergency responders during any type of major incident. ADMS is also used to test and validate emergency response and management plans, as well as various research applications. ADMS-COMMAND is the immersive, command and control training simulator built upon the ADMS platform. ADMS is also the core technology behind ADMS-DRIVE, ADMS-ARFF and ADMS-EOC. Training with ADMS helps to save lives and mitigate disaster’s impact.
