He added that an awareness training course targeting all sectors of the community will be held on the sidelines of the conference under the title: "Simulation for Public Preparedness." It will be attended by about 200 participants, including workers in the security companies and factories as well as the public, in an endeavor to increase knowledge about ways of saving lives at times of emergencies and crises.
Additionally, he said that the intensive scientific program will be accompanied by a number of activities including "Sim Dawri" to be attended by highly qualified and trained teams in the health simulation-based training from several health entities to display their experiences in this field through simulating some scientific scenarios reflecting the real situation when dealing with real patients. He went on saying that these experiences will be evaluated by specialized arbitration teams and the public participating in the contest to choose the winning team.
