This VTTX differs from other Tabletop exercises in that it will be conducted using Video-Teleconference (VTC) technology, and is intended to provide an opportunity for responders across the nation to simultaneously participate in a hazard-specific facilitated discussion. Lead facilitation for the exercise will be coordinated by EMI, with local facilitation provided by the participating agency. This format will allow the common delivery of exercise materials, scenarios, modules, and discussion questions among those participating in the exercise. Exercise Goal: This virtual exercise will enable the participants to exercise their knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to effectively conduct all-hazards emergency preparedness, response and recovery. Overall goals include: 1.) Prepare participants for a flood affecting their community. 2.) Enable participants to better coordinate their response operations with counterparts from local governments, other State governments, Federal agencies, private sector organizations, and nongovernmental agencies. 3.) Leverage VTC technology to reach remote sites. 4.) Provide a virtual, experiential education environment to exercise and enhance critical response and recovery tasks. This delivery method will allow participating communities to share real-time flood related preparation, response and recovery concerns and solutions with all participants. Target Audience: This VTTX is designed for a “community-based” organization with representation from multiple Emergency Support Functions (ESFs), comprised of whole community stakeholders and partners involved in a flood event response and recovery. The VTTX will consist of: • A hazard awareness briefing on the scenario hazard. • Three discussion modules presented by the EMI facilitator. • Local discussion with guided questions facilitated by an on-site facilitator. • Brief-outs from each participating location after each module. • Hotwash conducted at each location after the VTC has ended. Schedule of future VTTXs: April 24, 2013 (V-0008) – Scenario: Rail Hazardous Materials Incident May 15, 2013 (V-0009) – Scenario: Hurricane June 26, 2013 (V-0010) – Scenario: Mass Casualty July 10 , 2013 (V-0011) – Scenario: Fixed Hazardous Materials Incident August 21, 2013 (V-0012) – Scenario: CBRNE – Biological
