DESCRIPTION

Project 18-3D: Virtual Incident Management Training Deployment and System Maintenance

This work order will fund the delivery and system maintenance of the Coalition’s newly developed Virtual Incident Management Training (3-D) Program.

Background
The I-95 Corridor Coalition created an intensive training program that uses three-dimensional, multi-player computer gaming simulation technology and distance-based learning technologies to test, validate, certify, and reinforce the dissemination of best incident management practices across the Coalition region. The three-dimensional software program enables practical, scenario-based, interactive, real-time incident management training for numerous responders, trainers and “victims” simultaneously at a variety of locations. Participants include state, county, and local transportation departments, toll road authorities, law enforcement agencies, fire departments, emergency service providers, medical examiners, hazardous materials handlers, towing companies, the media, and other operating agencies and entities across the Corridor. The training program can be accessed from any location with an Internet connection thereby reducing training and travel costs and enabling increased participation. The program is designed to educate and validate quick clearance practices and related incident management techniques, but it is also designed to promote communication, coordination and cooperation among organizations involved in incident management. By involving responders from many different agencies, exposing them to best practices, establishing expectations that they will meet or exceed standards for good practice, and allowing them to discuss methods and issues with their peers, we believe that they will achieve more consistent performance, more innovation, and better and safer delivery of incident management services.

OBJECTIVES

Project 18-3D: Virtual Incident Management Training Deployment and System Maintenance
The objective of this project fund the delivery and system maintenance of the Coalition’s newly developed Virtual Incident Management Training (3-D) Program.

Project 14B-a3D,: 3D, Distributed, Interactive Transportation Management & First Responder Training System
To develop a realistic, computer based training tool that will allow multiple agencies within the I-95 Corridor Coalition to train with one another in a highly effective manner without the need to travel great distances. The tool will promote coordination and cooperation among all organizations involved in incident management including state, county, and local transportation departments, toll road authorities, law enforcement agencies, emergency service providers, and other operating agencies within the Corridor.
