International Fire Training Centre

Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (OTC Pink: ETCC)(“ETC” or the “Company”) Simulation Division, located in Orlando, Fla., has delivered to the Serco International Fire Training Centre (“IFTC”) an Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (“ADMS”) system. An ADMS user since 2001, IFTC in Darlington, United Kingdom uses their ADMS system to train aviation and industrial firefighters, as well as response personnel.

The newly delivered system is installed in IFTC’s new dedicated virtual reality training suite located at Durham Tees Valley Airport. The training system includes British left hand driving responder vehicles and crews, civil and military aircraft, head counts in the casualty collection area for firefighters and emergency medical services. The system also has the capability to train for off-airport aircraft incidents, as well as industrial and petrochemical emergencies for training industrial responders.

“Our clients in the fire and rescue sector are the ones on the front line so they know that training should never be about ticking boxes. IFTC is known to have one of the best fire grounds of its kind anywhere in the world. By investing in the new ADMS system, we now have the versatile and relevant technology to provide a whole new dimension to the learning they will get here.” said Dennis Perkins, Director of Training at IFTC.

Accredited by the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority and OPITO, IFTC provides mandated training programs and recommendations of the International Civil Aviation Organization. IFTC has trained aviation firefighters and emergency responders from more than 80 countries since 1981. The centre includes 20 acres dedicated for live fire training, an ADMS virtual reality suite to train and test decision making under high pressure situations, and fully equipped classrooms to teach firefighting, rescue and incident command.
