Computer simulation and disasters


Computer simulated disaster exercises are becoming much more common as part of an overall emergency management strategy. Historically, table top exercises have been used to help prepare emergency managers and communities to respond to disasters. However, given the range of technology options becoming available to help communities better prepare, computer simulation is becoming an important tool to consider. Computer simulation makes training experiences much more realistic. Data you can glean from a simulation exercise can also be extremely valuable.


ALTS Canada has developed a proprietary computer simulation software to help communities and businesses reduce their risk. In this episode we speak with Bruce Gilkes, Managing Partner, ALTS Canada, about how his previous military background has influenced the development of this computer simulation solution, and how their company is working with communities around the world to help them prepare for disasters in real time, in very realistic scenarios.
