State of the art equipmentVirtual Incident Command Center. As real as fake gets.

Our 3,500-square-foot facility on the fourth floor of MCC's Downtown Center creates a simulated emergency environment. Through computer and video images emergency responders can be drilled on everything from fires, national disasters, and terrorist attacks.

We are able to create engaging, immersive simulations of all types, including natural and man-made disasters, structure fires, wild land fires, terrorist events, floods, hostage situations, railroad accidents, structural collapses, hazardous materials spills, and more.
