Exercise, Evaluation & Training

CHHS regularly provides, in conjunction with plan development, training for agency personnel on relevant issues. Training allows plan users to become familiar with various portions of the plan, and their roles and responsibilities therein. CHHS develops personalized exercises (a disaster scenario simulated in a low-stress, discussion based environment) to test each plan it develops. Representatives from government agencies attend these exercises to gain a better understanding of how their plans work. (CHHS walks agency personnel through a mock disaster scenario and asks what they would do at various stages of the disaster from the warning signs through recovery.) Exercises also help identify gaps in the plans, which are then captured in an after-action report, so they can be addressed prior to an actual emergency.
