Emergo Train System (ETS) is an academic / educational simulation system used in several countries around the world for training and testing the preparedness and management of emergencies, major incidents and disasters.
We are happy to announce that Emergo Train System now have initiated a partnership with the International Committee of the Red Cross! This broadens the use of ETS to facilitate and support international medical disaster respons missions. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed in February 2020 between International Committee of the Red Cross and Emergo Train System/Region Östergötland.
The Emergency hospitals in the Stockholm region have used ETS for several years. On January 21-23, the ETS Competence center conducted an ETS Senior instructor course at Södersjukhuset (one of the largest hospitalts in Stockholm). The participants came from all the emergency hospitals in the Stockholm region. There are now 12 new Senior instructors in the Stockholm region who can set up exercises with ETS!
After this year 2019 we can summarize that a total of 2 336 persons from 42 countries have participated in the standardized ETS Senior instructor course. This includes 271 new Senior instructors that was certified this year.
A new ETS Educator faculty was started in Greece this autumn and today we have 126 Educators in 14 faculties that have the agreement of conducting their own Senior instructor courses.
It is with great pleasure we see how ETS is spread around the world thanks to all dedicated ETS Senior instructors and Educators and we like to take the opportunity to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
