the edge of glory

The Enhanced Dynamic Geo-Social Environment (EDGE) is a free virtual training platform that first responders can use to plan for a coordinated response to critical incidents. Built on the Unreal gaming engine, EDGE is not a traditional video game with pre-programmed respond-and-react scenarios.

Rather, EDGE is one tool in a comprehensive preparedness toolbox, complementing and honing training protocols already in place in communities nationwide. Credit: DHS Science and Technology Directorate
