So real, it's unreal.
If it can happen out there, we can make it happen in here.
The Virtual Incident Command Center provides the most true-to-life incident command training program available anywhere. Through state-of-the-art customizable simulations, trainees will experience virtually everything they’d experience in the field. The same chaos. The same confusion. The same pressure. That way, when something happens for real, it’ll be their performance that’s unreal.
In a matter of days, you'll gain years of experience.
At the VICC, what would otherwise take years to experience can be experienced in days. And experienced over and over again. Until you get it right. Over and over again. Commercial fires. Chemical spills. Wildfires. Earthquakes. Floods. No matter the incident, you can train (and train and train) for it here. Simply put: you'll practice in here so you're perfect out there.
We thought of everything. You'll be prepared for anything.
The VICC was developed in conjunction with a team of experts across all areas of incident command and emergency operations. Every aspect of better preparing trainees for real - world performance has been designed into the program and simulation models. The VICC is simply the best educational and training facility for incident command and emergency operations in the world.
Virtual Incident Command Center training is in compliance with the National Incident Management System (NIMS). All training is referenced to the National Response Framework (NRF), which serves as the guiding principles that enable all response partners to prepare for and provide a unified national response to disasters and emergencies. The NRF establishes a comprehensive, national, all-hazards approach to domestic incident response. When you successfully complete training at the VICC, you're the complete package for incident command.
