If you’ve caught yourself shaking your head at the latest building failures, evacuation follies, or general ill-preparedness for disasters, here’s a chance to do it your way.
Most simulations we’ve encountered in business continuity and disaster recovery planning have been limited to the table top variety conducted at a conference or perhaps coordinated within your organization internally. Such events typically involve groups of people role playing to act out events of a pretend disaster situation.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recently opened its newly constructed National Exercise Simulation Center (NESC) at FEMA Headquarters. The NESC provides a state-of-the-art facility to serve the all-hazards preparedness and response mission through pooling resources, maximizing efficiency and providing sustained exercise and training support to all stakeholders.
