Tornado Virtual Tabletop Exercise

disasterFEMA’s Emergency Management Institute Virtual Tabletop Exercise program will offer six sessions of a tornado scenario on March 7, 8, and 9 from 12-4 p.m. ET. Content is the same each day, and participants would attend only one session in February or March. The application deadlines for these exercises is Jan. 25.

The VTTX involves key personnel discussing simulated scenarios in an informal setting and can be used to assess plans, policies, training, and procedures. The design of the VTTX is for a group of ten or more representatives from state, local, tribal, and territorial emergency communities of practice and is intended to provide an opportunity for responders across the nation to simultaneously participate in a hazard-specific facilitated discussion. Participants will need to connect via a site equipped with the appropriate VTC capability (not Adobe Connect or FaceTime-based), but alternate ways to participate are also available upon request.

To participate, send an email to Doug Kahn at douglas.kahn@fema.dhs.gov or call 301-447-7645. Also, send a courtesy copy email to the Integrated Emergency Management Branch at fema-emi-iemb@fema.dhs.govor call 301-447-1381.
