Emergency and Disaster Management Simulation (EDMSIM)

How many lives could you save?

What is EDMSIM at Saskatchewan Polytechnic?

EDMSIM is an interactive, computer-based training solution for emergency response and crisis rehearsal training designed specifically for emergency management staff, emergency operations centre personnel, and municipal and civil leadership. A highly flexible and adaptable tool, EDMSIM allows teams to improve communications, validate contingency plans and procedures and perform better in an environment which realistically portrays the environment of a natural or man-made disaster.

Why choose EDMSIM?

  • Proven performance
    EDMSIM is a proven performer used by the US Northern Command, US Army, US National Guard, Centres for Disease Control and NATO for the conduct of training exercises.

  • Inter-agency operations
    EDMSIM exercises are scalable so that training can be conducted at a local, regional or higher level. All agencies responding to an event can be modelled.

  • Contingency plan validation
    EDMSIM training enables the implementation and validation of previously prepared procedures and contingency plans. The Operations Center staff operates within the same venue and with the same resources as during an actual crisis.

  • Resource management
    All of the resources available for use during the exercise scenario are imported into the EDMSIM database as part of the scenario creation process. As in real life, the Operations Centre staff must allocate and manage these resources during the course of the exercise.

  • Simple to operate
    The software was designed from the outset to be operated by first responders with basic computer skills.

  • Post exercise review
    EDMSIM provides replay of the simulation from any perspective and allows significant events to be highlighted. User-defined reports can be generated detailing information on damage, casualties and logistic consumption.

  • Training services
    Saskatchewan Polytechnic is a trusted training services provider. Our experts not only analyze the problem and recommend training, but they also bring the training solution with them to help your staff practise working together under realistic training conditions.
    Our simulation-based training is a unique way to ensure that everyone knows what to do, when to do it and who to talk to during even the most stressful events. The old training methods just don’t work–you need the staff to experience the event, not just talk about it.
  • Exercise design and delivery
    Our training experts will work within your constraints to produce the best possible exercise solution. The Sask Polytech advantage is our in-house computer simulation tools to add realism and training value to your exercise. C4i Consultants, the leaders in disaster management simulation, developed computer-based simulation technology with the goal to save lives.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic is an exclusive partner with C4i Consultants to deliver this unique training in the west.
