Today, FEMA's Private Sector Division posted a new community level Tabletop Exercise, the third in its series of free tools for continuity planning, preparedness and resiliency. The first two exercises offered tips on employee preparedness and emergency planning at the organizational level. This new one builds on that design, and has a broader community-wide scope that you can use in coordination with your local emergency management partners.
As an added bonus, this new Community level exercise includes Twitter feeds and text alerts, in addition to the Virtual News Network (VNN) videos.
It has the same great simple to use and scalable format. It has also been vetted by some of you, and incorporates real-world examples.
We welcome your continued feedback on the design and usefulness of the tabletop exercises and encourage you to let others know of the availability of these planning tools. You can send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new exercise is available at our here.
