ExerciseDescription:
This exercise will focus on a flooding event, specifically looking at response and recovery efforts. Flooding is one of a series of Virtual Tabletop Exercises offered by the Emergency Management Institute. This VTTX differs from other tabletop exercises in that it will be conducted using Video-Teleconference 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. VTTX involves key personnel discussing a simulated flood in an informal setting, and can be used to assess plans, policies, training and procedures. Lead facilitation for the exercise will be coordinated by EMI, with local facilitation provided by the participating agency. Read more in Training Opportunity 2019
