1159 - Training Opportunity - VTTX 0023 - Pandemic Influenza June 15

Exercise Description:

In collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this exercise is one of five specially designed Virtual Tabletop Exercises, which will specifically focus on the impacts of a novel influenza virus on the public health community. The VTTX involves key personnel discussing simulated scenarios in an informal setting, and can be used to assess plans, policies, training, and procedures. This VTTX differs from other Tabletop exercises in that they will be conducted using Video-Teleconference (VTC) technology (not web-based), and are intended to provide an opportunity for responders across the Nation to simultaneously participate in a hazard-specific facilitated discussion. EMI and CDC will co-lead the exercise, with local facilitation provided by the participating agency. This format will allow the common delivery of exercise materials, scenarios, modules, and discussion questions among those participating in the exercise.
