VeeSim stands for Virtual Emergency Evacuation Simulator.
VeeSim is an Emergency Warning and Intercom System (EWIS) simulator that has been programmed to simulate an emergency in your building that requires a full building evacuation. VeeSim not only replicates the EWIS control panel but also simulates fire warden interaction to provide a real life experience for training staff who may be required to act in the Chief Fire Warden role.
VeeSim is used to train staff in the use of an EWIS system. In most large buildings the installed EWIS cannot be used for live training, as any alarms sounding will disrupt tenants and normal building operations. VeeSim allows staff to perform a simulated building evacuation from the first alarm to the conclusion of the evacuation.
The simulation is based on the parameters describing your building that were entered from the VeeSim control screen.
VeeSim simulates fire alarms, alert and evacuation tones and messaging, WIP phone call management, P/A system use, fire warden reporting and PEEP counts.VeeSim, just like the EWIS system in your building, can be operated in automatic or manual modes to ensure staff can be trained in both modes. A physically plugged in Telephone and a P/A handset simulate real life communications devices.
Currently VeeSim can be configured with up to 25 levels and 3 WIP phones per level. VeeSim can be modified to simulate your building EWIS system by changing cascade times, cascade sequence, number of PEEPs expected per level, number of levels where PEEPS are expected and EWIS LED colors.
The only limiting factor with the simulator is the device you are running it on.The simulator can run on any touch screen Windows tablet or laptop; or any windows PC with a touch screen connected. It can also be run using a mouse click to simulate the touch screen, however this will not give as realistic an experience as the use of a touch screen allows.
On a 10 inch Windows tablet supporting 1920 x 1080 resolution, you can run up to 10 levels / zones with 3 WIP phones per level.On a 24 inch touch screen supporting 1920 x 1080 resolution, you can simulate 25 levels / zones with up to 3 WIP phones.
