Faithful Hospital Replica For Emergency Preparedness Serious Gaming

Serious Games challenging us to improve emergency services

Via: Play2Train Open Content Alliance - Teaser Trailer Of The Recently Built Hospital Replica

Following my prior post Play2Train: The Virtual Elk's Rehabilitation Hospital Construction, the teaser trailer of the recently built hospital replica is now available.


The Play2Train Open Content Alliance (POCA) represents collaborative efforts to build a permanent self-sustaining archive of open source virtual worlds, including their content and applications, to support public domain emergency preparedness training and exercises.

The construction of the virtual Idaho Elk's Rehabilitation Hospital aims at supporting the planning of full scale exercises that will take place in May/June next year.

They will also run exercises in the virtual environment and compare it with full scale exercises in the real world. This effort differs from previous ones in that, this time, they have actually replicated a virtual version of a real hospital.
