National Center for Medical Readiness


The National Center for Medical Readiness (NCMR) is a realistic training environment for any potential emergency response personnel – from community groups and healthcare providers to law enforcement agencies and combat medics.

NCMR maintains large meeting rooms and offices set on over 50 acres in Fairborn, Ohio, and uses unique props and realistic settings to duplicate the full range of hazardous materials, confined spaces, and transportation-oriented wreckage. These environments provide a training and research platform for a wide market of potential users.

NCMR also serves as a testbed for industry development and commercialization of disaster preparedness-related equipment and materials.

The facility bridges the gap between medical readiness and disaster response through the creation and implementation of training programs that offer solutions to dynamic emergency rescue challenges.
