Abstract This paper introduces a simulator to train cognitive skills and teamwork of EMS teams engaged in a multi-casualty incident. It focuses on the multi-level EMS management of the incident: the collaborative training of the onsite paramedics and offsite dispatch operators in a flexible manner. The simulator?s configuration consists of two primary modules: 1. The multi-casualty incident site module, consisting of a fully interactive 3D serious game for a single trainee playing the role of the onsite paramedic in charge of managing the EMS; and 2. The EMS dispatch center module for two trainees, one playing the dispatch supervisor and the other playing a dispatch operator. This module includes also a situation display to facilitate situational awareness skills, predictive thinking, natural decision making, and team transactive memory systems.
