									Resources For Exercise
    Enhancement
              OBJECTIVES
   List 2 ways to create realism for an exercise.

   Identify resources for enhancement, such as
    communication links, video tape, computer
    utilization and other enhancements.
          Communications
 Telephones
 Radio (two-way)
 Messages / Memo Forms
 Television/A.T.V. (amateur television)
 Weather Warning / EAS
 FAX
 Hospital - Hospital
         Use Of Computers
 To construct the Exercise Plan and COSIN.
 Tracking of major event / individual
  incidents.
 Create a running log / documentation.
 Resource directory.
 Geo-Information System functions (GIS).
 Computer Aided Management of
  Emergency Operations (CAMEO).
        Video Enhancement
 Advantage of realism -- can set the tone.
 Disadvantage if EOC staff uses to second
  guess.
 Easy to do with camcorder, VCR and
  video tape of real events.
                 Media
 A member of Simulation Team acts as
  member of the Media
 “The Real Thing” ….covering Exercise as a
  news event.
                    Coordinate with
                    Chief Executive &
                    PIO
           Realism At Work

 Evening Exercise / Weekend Exercise.
 Event plus 12 hours, shift exchange exercise
  (requires creation of status report type
  information).
 Exercise the alternate staff with primary
  staff as Exercise Design Team / Simulation
  Team (training for 1st team).
    Additional Enhancements

 Simulated 911 calls to dispatch
  (requires second dispatch center).
 Power outages / loss of computer support.
 Telephone outage.
 Use of alternate EOC.
