V-0011 - Virtual Tabletop Exercise Series (VTTX) – Fixed Facility - Hazardous Material (HAZMAT)

Emmitsburg, MD — You are subscribed to EMI News for FEMA. This following information has recently been updated, and is now available on http://training.fema.gov/EMI/

Exercise Description:

This exercise is the eleventh in a series of 12 Virtual Tabletop Exercises (VTTX) that will be offered monthly by the Emergency Management Institute (EMI). The VTTX involves key personnel discussing simulated scenarios in an informal setting, and can be used to assess plans, policies, training, and procedures. This VTTX differs from other Tabletop exercises in that it will be conducted using Video-Teleconference (VTC) technology (not web-based), and is intended to provide an opportunity for responders across the nation to simultaneously participate in a hazard-specific facilitated discussion. Lead facilitation for the exercise will be coordinated by EMI, with local facilitation provided by the participating agency. This format will allow the common delivery of exercise materials, scenarios, modules, and discussion questions among those participating in the exercise. New to the VTTX program is the addition of an After-Action Report/Improvement Plan (AAR/IP) template for completion by the participating organization. Read more...
