RescueSim is single and multi agency training software that prepares public safety and security professionals for real-life incidents in a virtual environment.
RescueSim allows emergency crews to experience the incident as they would in real-life. They assess the situation and determine the best response strategy, implement it and then observe the consequences of their decisions. It offers important benefits:
- Train people whenever, wherever without time-consuming planning and preparation
- Improve operational preparedness of the emergency response organisation
- Reduce training costs
- Learn new skills in a safe environment
