BOLIVIA—As a container is being loaded off a ship at a port, it explodes. Billowing black smoke fills the air and emergency responders converge on the scene. Once they arrive, it’s time to get to work—assess the situation and put out the flames.
Then there’s a second explosion.
To practice this scenario in the real world would be difficult, if not impossible, but with a new training simulator recently acquired by Brunswick County Emergency Services, it’s a reality—a virtual reality.
