Environmental Tectonics’ simulation division has signed a contract with the Hong Kong Fire Services Department to deliver a multi-station ADMS-COMMAND, the next- generation advanced disaster management simulator training system.
The contract includes three open-ended, dynamic scenarios within a regionalized virtual environment. The scenarios include a multi-vehicle highway traffic accident, a B-747 crash-landed in a residential area and a high-rise apartment building fire. The scenarios can be changed to fit various training objectives. The system will also include regionalized response vehicles.
Marco van Wijngaarden, simulation division president at Environmental Tectonics, said: We are proud to be working with the Hong Kong Fire Services Department (HKFSD). This order marks the second advanced disaster management simulator system (ADMS) to be purchased by a world-class Asian fire services institution, following the delivery of a large ADMS-COMMAND system to the South Korean National Fire Service Academy last year.
