Simple Ways to Optimize Emergency Operations Plans Through Effective Tabletop Exercises
June 9, 2021

Hurricanes, active shooter situations, and pandemics are not the time to discover gaps in your emergency operations plan (EOP). That is why the Fund recommends members conduct tabletop exercises. These scenario-based drills allow staff to practice your procedures, sharpen group problem-solving skills, and build the confidence they need during real emergencies. In this webinar, we will walk you through the process of developing and implementing a tabletop exercise. You will also learn how to leverage after-action exercise reviews to ensure the EOP meets your organization’s evolving needs.
