This emergency response training project was developed in conjunction with the Center for Integration of Medical and Innovative Technology (CIMIT) at Massachusetts General Hospital and was funded by the VHA Health Foundation. Using the National Incident Management System (NIMS), RIPS (Real-Time Incident Preparedness Simulator) seeks to go beyond other instructional tools by delivering tense, engaging disaster scenarios. Players work together to resolve disasters, while a Disaster Moderator (DM) introduces additional challenges in the form of on-the-fly modifications to the scenario. Emphasizing problem solving, RIPS features simulated representations of any US town or city, generated from real-time data.
