Institute for Safety awards contract to ETC Simulation

The Institute for Safety awarded a contract to Environmental Tectonics Corporation's Simulation Division on Wednesday that will expand its Advanced Disaster Management Simulator.

The IFV provides ADMS training support for the Royal Netherlands Navy Fire Service.

The contract will have ETC deliver multiple portable ADMS Training Systems with adapted scenarios that cover port, emergency response vehicles and crews, fire fighting boats and CBRNE incidents.

"IFV is very pleased with the acknowledgement by the Fire Service of the Royal Netherlands Navy for this multi-year training support contract," Eric Didderen, senior trainer and adviser at IFV, said. "We will work closely with Navy experts to further develop the exercise simulations needed for training fire and rescue in ports and on-board ships. The exercise scenarios also include a protesting crowd at the port and suspicious packages."

The ADMS systems will be used by the Royal Netherlands Navy Fire Service to provide virtual reality training and examination programs to civilian and military staff. ADMS was also recently certified by the National Fire Exam Bureau to be used for qualification exams.

"We are very happy with ADMS, as it is a proven simulation platform that provides optimal scenario generating flexibility in combination with high fidelity simulation at a level required to train and test incident command," Didderen said.
