Elmore County EMA hosted a table top exercise based around the preparedness, response and recovery of a winter storm.
It was a discussion based exercise that focused on the impacts of a winter storm. Stakeholder and partner agencies came together at the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), which would be activated for an event of this nature, to work through the difficulties of operating in and recovering from winter storm conditions. Topics discussed were preparedness actions ahead of the storm, response to the consequences of the storm and recovery after the storm.
It was a great opportunity for the many agencies to come together to improve overall communications and coordination for responding to the needs of the citizens during inclement weather situations and to discuss returning to normal or as close to normal as possible after they pass.
