The Emergency Management Institute released the Fiscal Year 2019 schedule for its Virtual Tabletop Exercise (VTTX) Program. FY2019 VTTX topics include Vehicle as Weapon; Bakken Oil Transport; two Active Shooter scenarios; Earthquake; Hurricane; Cyber; and Long Term Power Outage, to name a few.
The VTTX program leverages the “whole community” concept by encouraging collaboration with non-profit organizations, school administration, local military and public health agencies. Participating locations usually have between 10-50 participants representing a variety of agencies and organizations.
Each scenario consists of three discussion modules, local discussion with guided questions led by an onsite facilitator and back briefs from each location at the completion of each module. The exercises run 12-4 p.m. Eastern on each day.
