The NYC Office of Emergency Management will be hosting a winter weather tabletop. We all recognize the importance of exercising the plans that we spend so much time developing. Tabletop exercises provide a cost effective way to increase the preparedness of organizations by allowing participants to rehearse their roles during emergencies and by revealing flaws in existing plans that must be corrected. We would like you to join us, NOT for another lecture about the importance of exercises, but as the NYCEM Public/Private Initiatives Team walks us through a scenario (or two) and the decisions that need to be made – on the public and private side! This will be an excellent opportunity to get an understanding of the challenges that we all face and will help inform their efforts to support us during actual events
After the tabletop members will have an opportunity for Q&A, and take a tour of the OEM.
