About the Center for Simulation & Disaster Management Institute at the Community College of Aurora (CCA) at the Lowry Campus
The Disaster Management Institute of Colorado, a program within the Center for Simulation at the Community College of Aurora. The Institute features a fully functional Emergency Operations Center that allows CCA students and working professionals alike to experience and train in management of simulated disasters of all types and sizes. The space was completed in 2005 and is the first in the world to create simulation spaces for training first responders.
The Institute serves as a model for interagency collaboration and workforce training and development and is key to CCA’s Center for Simulation and Public Service programs. Classes at the Institute are taught by emergency management and homeland security professionals, including police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical professionals who are working or have worked for public service agencies. The facility employs some of the most advanced technology available, including an Advanced Disaster Management Simulator (ADMS). ADMS is a training simulator that offers a realistic environment to train first responders, on-scene commanders, and incident command teams. The technology bridges the gap between classroom and live exercises and enables students to gain necessary insight and skills to handle any type of emergency, from traffic accidents up to large-scale disasters.
