The IDF Home Front Command has received an upgraded training and simulation system from Elbit Systems, the defense company announced Monday.
The Defense Ministry will transfer the Incident Command Team Training System to the Home Front Command, which will use it to prepare for mass casualty and emergency incidents together with civil emergency responders and municipalities.
“Newly introduced features allow the integration of military and other organizations into a joint-control tactical training arena, as well as a higher level of performance in preparing for current and future risks,” Elbit said.
The training system, which has multiple stations that simulate a wide range of emergency scenarios, is controlled by a command post and can train hundreds of security responders simultaneously, each playing different roles in managing incidents.
The latest version of the simulator incorporates civil and municipal security forces into training programs.
At the end of each training program, participants are presented with a complete performance review report based on their actions and visual representations of the scenario, which allows them to evaluate, learn from and significantly improve their decision-making processes, according to Elbit.
