Exercise Description:

This Virtual Tabletop Exercises (VTTX) will focus on an earthquake occurring in your community, using historical events and Hazus simulations.

The VTTX involves key personnel discussing simulated scenarios in an informal setting, and can be used to assess plans, policies, training, and procedures.  This VTTX differs from other tabletop exercises in that it will be conducted using Video-Teleconference (VTC) technology (not a web‑based program), 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.
