Dutch Safety Regions choose virtual training system to enhance incident command training

Published:  22 July, 2015

Following an official tender for delivery and installation of a virtual training system, the Safety Regions Kennemerland and Zaanstreek-Waterland have selected RescueSim as their virtual training tool of choice to further enhance their incident command training courses. 

Throughout the tender process, various virtual training systems were evaluated based on their ability to offer a diverse range of Dutch-modelled training environments that included all relevant incident response elements. Further requirements that were judged included the ease-of-use for instructors and the ability to provide realistic, cost effective and safe emergency response training through a comprehensive scenario portfolio.


Following a thorough evaluation and comparison RescueSim was found to comply with all the set requirements and specifications by the Safety Regions and was lauded as the most economically solid, high quality and cost effective solution.
The Safety Regions in the Netherlands, 25 in total, represent the interests of the local municipalities with regards to firefighting, emergency response and crisis management, as well as medical assistance for accidents and disasters. They are responsible for management and coordination of public safety.
