Exercising The Disaster Management Team

Disaster simulation exercises are used to test the staffing, management, and decision making of both the computer and non-computer related aspects of an organization's business continuity and life-safety plans. Special simulation methods must be used to exercise the Disaster Management Team and their Emergency Operations Center. A proven approach to designing and conducting this type of simulation is presented, including a full script from an actual simulation exercise. The primary value of a DMT simulation exercise is the realization by management, that the extensive testing conducted for the emergency response teams had little impact on the Disaster Policy and Disaster Management Teams preparation.
