FEMA/EMI offers six sessions of hurricane virtual tabletop exercise in March and April 2017

from IAEM

The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Emergency Management Institute (EMI) Virtual Tabletop Exercise (VTTX) has scheduled six sessions of a hurricane scenario for March and April 2017. The four-hour exercise is scheduled for 12:00-4:00 p.m. ET on Mar. 21, 22, and 23, and on Apr. 11, 12, and 13. The application deadlines are Feb. 21 for the March offerings and Mar. 14 for the April offerings. Content is the same each day, and participants would attend only one session. The exercise will help communities prepare for the upcoming hurricane season using historical events and recovery actions. The design of the VTTX is for a group of 10 or more representatives from state, local, tribal, and territorial emergency communities of practice and is intended to provide an opportunity for responders across the nation to simultaneously participate in a hazard-specific facilitated discussion. To participate, email Doug Kahn at douglas.kahn@fema.dhs.gov or call 301-447-7645. Also, send a courtesy copy email to the Integrated Emergency Management Branch at fema-emi-iemb@fema.dhs.gov or call 301-447-1381. Additional information is available online. more
