Incident Commander™ NIMS-compliant training tool for Homeland Security

Incident Commander™ NIMS-compliant training tool for Homeland Security

Disaster strikes a community through a severe storm, a chemical spill, a terrorist bomb, or a hostage situation in a local school. The game puts you in the role of incident commander, challenging you to coordinate a multi-agency (fire, police, EMS, HAZMAT, public works, operations, planning, finance, and logistics units) response using the National Incident Management System (NIMS) protocol. Work in single player mode to control all units yourself, or assign specific unit command to up to 16 participants and tackle the impending catastrophe as a unified team before the situation spirals out of control.

Code Orange™ Emergency Medical Management Training for Mass Catastrophe

While working in a virtual hospital, you hear that a weapons-of-mass-destruction event just occurred in your area and thousands of people are injured or killed. In 15 minutes, the first wave of casualties will begin to arrive by ambulance, helicopter, car, and on foot. As part of the medical team, your job is to save lives by working in concert with other staff to implement the hospital's streamlined process for handling mass casualty situations. Code Orange™ is built on the Hospital Emergency Incident Command System (HEICS) protocol.

The generation that grew up with Super Mario is entering the workplace, entering politics, so they see games as just another good tool to use to communicate.
