Southampton, PA: November 2, 2007 - Environmental Tectonics Corporation's (AMEX:ETC) ("ETC" or the "Company") Simulation Division today announced the signing of a contract with the Hong Kong Fire Services Department (HKFSD) to deliver a multi-station ADMS-COMMAND, the next-generation Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS) 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. The HKFSD employs a force of over 9,000 firefighters who serve one of the most densely populated urban areas in the world. To be delivered by the end of the year, HKFSD's ADMS system will allow responders to train safely and realistically.
Marco van Wijngaarden, Simulation Division President, commented, "We are proud to be working with the Hong Kong Fire Services Department. This order marks the second ADMS system 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. ETC looks forward to working with HKFSD for years to come."
ADMS is a high fidelity interactive team training simulation platform that offers a proven methodology to provide 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. It is also used to test and validate emergency response and management plans. ADMS bridges the gap between tabletop exercises and real world experience, and rapidly advances the effective coordinated response of multi-agency and multi-jurisdictional emergency responders during any type of disaster. Training with ADMS helps save lives and mitigate disaster's impact.
