RescueSim used during large scale incident exercise in the Thomassentunnel in Rozenburg
A large scale real-life emergency response exercise was held in the Thomassentunnel in Rozenburg from Thursday June 7th, 21.00h until Friday morning 05.00h. RescueSim was used for assistance and visualisation by the first responders and tunnel authorities during this exercise. . The scenario began with an unfortunate accident in the tunnel. Shortly after, a truck noticing traffic too late to react, crashed in the tunnel making another 3 cars crash onto the truck.
The goal of this exercise for all emergency services, was to successfully and correctly solve this chaos whilst taking note of all safety requirements and correct procedures. RescueSim was used for the visualization and simulation of the tunnel incident during the exercise.
