...BRINGS MORE REALISM TO THE SCENARIO AND THE STUDENTS’ LEARNING
My name is Chris Miller. I am a retired firefighter/paramedic and an EMS Educator. Last week the Rescue Simulation Products (RSP) personnel delivered and assembled one of their RSP Ambulance Simulator at the Ben Clark Regional Public Safety Training Center (BCTC) in Riverside, California as the result of a grant I was associated with. Working diligently with the administration and instructional staff of Moreno Valley College, Cory Brown at RSP personally delivered and, with the aid of his competent assistants, assembled the entire RSP Ambulance Simulator in a little over one day.
At BCTC over 500 EMS students a year will have access to this training adjunct. It is obvious this piece of equipment is up to that level to use, i.e., sturdy construction and realistic materials contribute to create an environment that, though completely controlled, will provide realism to “in ambulance” scenarios. Our RSP Ambulance Simulator will be used in concert with a human patient simulator and a video recording/playback system. RSP provides multiple options to facilitate the use of these other training adjuncts. The dimensions of the RSP Ambulance Simulator mirror the dimensions of an actual Type I or Type II ambulance patient area yet it fit into our current “portable” classrooms.
For realistic scenarios in the environment where paramedics and EMTs do allot of their clinical work, nothing comes close to the affordability, controllability and user-friendliness of the Rescue Simulation Products Ambulance Simulator. I highly recommend this product.
This letter is being prepared and sent to Rescue Simulation Products (RSP) to express our delight with our new RSP Ambulance Simulator. Our simulator was delivered and assembled on site in Spring of 2011. I have to say the process was smooth and our students love the simulator. I actually have a hard time getting them out of it so we can return to class for lecture. This RSP Ambulance Simulator brings more realism to the scenario and the students’ learning while we are conducting labs. Once our order was received, this company did everything they said they would do. They arrived on time on the scheduled day and went to work immediately. By the end of the day we were at least 80% assembled. RSP is a professional and customer oriented business. Even after the assembly and their departure, we have received emails from them to see if we have experienced any problems or issues, which we have not. So far everything has worked great and our students really love this addition to our lab area. Our Advisory Committee loves it as well and I would not hesitate to recommend this product to any EMS program.
