As you may know, EMI conducts a series of Virtual VTTX using a video teleconference (VTC) platform to reach community-based training audiences around the country and provide a virtual forum for disaster training. The VTTX process involves key personnel from the emergency management community of practice reviewing a pre-packaged set of exercise materials, then convening for a four-hour tabletop exercise discussion of a simulated disaster scenario with a total of 10-15 individual sites.
The event allows the connected sites to assess current plans, policies, and procedures while learning from the other connected sites, as they provide their perspective and practice while exercising a similar situation. A VTC system is required for participation; there is no cost for this program.
For the third quarter of 2018 the following topics are being highlighted:
- Catastrophic Incidents/Recovery Coordination
- Non-Stafford Act Incidents
- Cyber Coordination
