The sad reality of our current world is that mass shootings happen with grotesque regularity. Sadly, they also happen in schools, some of our most vulnerable locations and ones that are filled with our most cherished citizens. In an effort to ensure that teachers better understand how to react to situations taking place in schools, especially shootings, the US Army is ready to provide assistance in the form of a training simulator.
The “game” is being developed, according to PCGameN, in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security, the US Army and Cole Engineering Services. The latter is a tech firm that develops training sims and games with serious messages.
“The more experience you have, the better your chances of survival. This allows you to practice and have multiple experiences to know what works and what doesn’t work.” the narrator explains.
A Gizmodo video provides instruction to teachers to lock doors and line students up along interior walls to remain out of sight of any door or exterior windows.
The simulation game will be ready to launch later in 2018.
