To be prepared for flooding events, disaster response personnel has to be trained to execute developed action plans. We present a flood response training system which connects an interactive flood simulation with a VR client. The collaborative operator-trainee setup of our system allows a trainee to steer the remote simulation from within the virtual environment, evaluate the effectiveness of deployed protection measures, and compare the results across multiple simulation runs. An operator supervises the trainee's actions from a linked desktop application to provide assistance in complex tasks. The versatility of our system is demonstrated on four different city models.
