Good Morning Municipal Partners,

This is part of an ongoing exercise series aimed at improving emergency response during major incidents. 

Volunteers will act out the role of a community stakeholder on the train at the time of the emergency and will see first-hand how regional emergency responders handle the situation.

MONTHLY. Flood Virtual TableTop Exercise (TTX)

Emergency Management Institute Offers Flood Virtual Tabletop Exercise

FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute (EMI) Virtual Tabletop Exercise (VTTX) program will offer a flood scenario May 24-25, 2017. The VTTX is designed to help emergency management professionals exercise their response to the impact of major flooding on their community. The VTTX involves key personnel discussing simulated scenarios in an informal setting, and can be used to assess plans, policies, training, and procedures during a flood and inundation challenge.

Each month, EMI conducts a VTTX series using a Video Teleconference (VTC) platform to reach community-based training audiences around the country by providing a virtual forum for interactive disaster training.  The VTTX is designed for a group of ten or more representatives from state, local, tribal, and territorial emergency management communities of practice. It provides a unique opportunity for responders across the nation to simultaneously participate in a hazard-specific, facilitated discussion. Participants will need to connect via a site equipped with the appropriate VTC capability (not Adobe Connect or Face Time-based), but alternate ways to participate are also available upon request.

The VTTX occurs 12-4 p.m. ET. To participate, send an email to douglas.kahn@fema.dhs.gov or call 301-447-7645. Also, send a courtesy copy email to fema-emi-iemb@fema.dhs.gov or call 301-447-1381. The application deadline is May 1, 2017. Additional information is available at https://training.fema.gov/programs/emivttx.aspx.
