This article describes a game-based training environment that incorporates multiple, adjustable, variables such as numbers of participants and victims, skill level of first responders and relative effectiveness of the measures taken. The key innovation underlying the simulation is a capability called Game Analysis, which captures and analyzes all of the data generated during the play of a game.
