This paper presents the ongoing development of a Proof-of-Concept Virtual Reality (VR) system for staff training for Tan Tock Seng Hospital mass decontamination of Hazardous and Toxic Materials (HAZMAT) and/or radioactively contaminated casualties. As a Proof-of-Concept, the initial prototype focuses on allowing users to practice using a chemical scanner device that would be used to scan casualties for leftover chemical hazards. The preliminary development demonstrates the advantages of utilizing VR to simulate training scenarios for supplementing current decontamination training in a safe and economical way.
