Aviators at Yokota Airbase Employ VR for Earthquake Preparedness


Virtual reality can help prepare respondents for earthquakes, training them in the eventuality of powerful natural disasters in the event of one.

Airmen at Yokota Airbase have been using virtual reality to prepare for natural disasters. This innovative device offers them a unique first-person perspective of the impact of an earthquake, from its onset to the end, equipping the airmen with the skills and awareness of risk management:

“What we are hoping for is risk management awareness, as well as getting a firsthand experience to what some of these emergencies might actually look like,” said Maj. Nick Reed, the 374th Airlift Wing’s chief safety officer

The training was held at the annual airlift hub in Tokyo, and an additional experience was provided inside the base to simulate a home-based environment and escape scenario.

Overall, the VR training experience at Yokota Airbase shows the critical use case of immersive technologies in assisting responders and normal citizens in emergencies. Virtual reality can effectively simulate life-risking scenarios that are not possible in the real world without the event happening, thus enabling those partaking in such simulations to train effectively, cost-efficiently, and safely.
