ETC Simulation Awarded Contract by East Central Florida Regional Planning Council to Provide ADMS On-Site Training



2013-02-25 20:00:34 -


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., USA, February 25, 2013 - Environmental Tectonics Corporation's
("ETC" or the "Company") Simulation Division, located in Orlando, FL,
has been
awarded a contract to provide on-site training services to the East Central
Florida Regional Planning Council (ECFRPC). The training will be conducted at
Daytona Beach International Airport and will be held in preparation for their
FAA-mandated tri-annual drill. ETC Simulation will provide their Advanced
Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS) team training system, along with exercise
control and facilitation staff.

"Airports certified under 14 CFR part 139 are required to complete a full-scale
exercise every three years, and it is vital in preparing responders for an
actual emergency situation," said Tim Kitchen, Manager of Emergency Preparedness
with the East Central Florida Regional Planning Council. "To enhance
capabilities for the tri-annual event, Volusia County identified an opportunity
to utilize the ADMS system to provide responders a chance to practice and train
on current response procedures. The system allows for us to cover a much larger
audience base, including multiple agencies and shifts. If we did live training
to prepare for our tri-annual, it would be incredibly costly in terms of money
and resources. ADMS helps us prepare with the scenarios we need while offering
cost savings, time savings, and reduced environmental impact."

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mandates that airports complete this
exercise once every three years. The drill involves a full-scale training
scenario. It is used to practice procedures for incident command, first
responders, communications and other supporting departments, and to identify
areas of improvement. The exercise will be conducted in compliance with the
requirements of the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP).
Volusia County officials will be on hand to ensure the proper execution of the
exercise and to provide a thorough after action review. Participants will
include representatives from the Volusia County Division of Emergency
Management, Daytona Beach International Airport Operations Division, as well as
fire departments, HazMat teams, communications, and emergency medical personnel
from Daytona Beach International Airport and the surrounding area.
