Guidance for Planning Exercises

This guidebook and accompanying support materials presented in this manual was developed to assist local, state, tribal and federal agencies in conducting emergency preparedness tabletops, drills and exercises for transportation emergencies. It provides basic instructions on all aspects of event preparation, and describes how to use the other materials in this transportation emergency preparedness package. Used properly, this manual should enhance emergency preparedness by enabling communities to practice and demonstrate their ability to respond to a transportation emergency. The accident scenarios provided with this manual may be expanded/contracted to demonstrate some or all aspects of a response by one or more agencies.
