Description Contemporary terrorism threats have highlighted the importance of effective incident management strategies that necessitate multi-agency coordination and proficient first response teams. Homeland Security Presidential Directives 5 and 8, recognizing the importance of exceptional first response individuals, require all first responders to undergo thorough training. Visual Purple provided the national defense contractor with a simulation that met Presidential Directive requirements. By efficiently providing incident management information in an interactive and entertaining manner, the simulation encouraged a high retention rate. The two part format meets varying proficiency needs. ICS: Foundations takes place in a virtual classroom setting and teaches basic principles. ICS: Call to Action allows the user to apply the principles in a simulated, real-time incident. The cost effective, web based format allows for flexible training times and locations, thus eliminating the constraints of traditional training.
