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.
There is now a new updated Psychosocial support set - version 4 - available in English!
The ETS Psychosocial support training material is developed in order to practice coordination and psychological first aid for situations in everyday life as well as major incidents. The material was developed in 2013 and is used in several county councils and municipalities in different countries. Version 4 of the set was first made in Swedish and is now available in English.
International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) have started using ETS on their international educations and trainings! The photos below are from a Mass Casualty Management training in Geneva. The participants came from all over the world to attend the first ICRC prehospital mass casualty management workshop.
On May 9 the ETS competence centre arranged an Emergo Train System meeting at the WADEM conference in Brisbane, Australia. 43 ETS Senior instructors from Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Finland, The Netherlands and Sweden participated and discussed the ETS version 4 and future developments of the ETS educational concept.
