C4i and EDMSIM in action in Peru
In June this year, a team from C4i Consultants Inc, Calgary deployed to Peru in support of an Earthquake Emergency Response Planning event. The team deployed our Emergency and Disaster Management Simulation (EDMSIM) as the scenario and visualization tool to allow the Peruvian Emergency Management decision makers to conduct a real-time free-play planning exercise. The workshop allowed the Emergency Responders to understand the 2nd & 3rd order consequences and effects that would not normally be considered using a tabletop exercise. The event was a great success and the local team learnt some valuable lessons from the issues that arose.
