Simulation for Incident Command Training cum XVR Users’ Group Meeting 2017

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI), in cooperation with XVR Simulation, held a seminar on ‘Simulation for Incident Command Training’ and an XVR Asian Users’ Group Meeting on 12-13 September 2017 at the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine. The event aimed at creating a platform for Asian users not only to discuss current and future developments in disaster-preparedness and disaster-response simulation training, but also explore opportunities for regional cooperation. Speakers from the HKJCDPRI, Seoul Metropolitan Fire Brigade Incident Command Training Centre, Singapore Civil Defence Force Advanced Command Training Centre and Department of Fire & Emergency Services of Great Southern Australia took turns to deliver presentations on their practical experiences on incident command simulation training. Moreover, technical representatives from XVR Simulation showcased the latest XVR model, the updated version of Crisis Media and the company’s product roadmap for the coming years. In addition, a technical visit to the Hong Kong Fire and Ambulance Services Academy was paid by the participants on 12 September 2017. The 1.5-day event was attended by 47 participants who came from Australia, Hong Kong, Mainland China, Netherlands, Philippines, Singapore and South Korea.
