Operation Plugged In

"Operation Plugged In" was a table top emergency exercise that took place on October 6 2011.  This exercise simulated a three week power outage due to an ice storm. Members of the community from both the public and private sectors took part to discuss the issues surrounding preparedness, response and recovery associated with such a lengthily and severe emergency. Documents were provided to the participants as resources for discussion and are available below.

All staff, volunteers, and organizations involved in the emergency program take part in training exercises. These exercises occur at least once per year. During the training sessions various case studies, tabletop exercises, and potential scenarios are reviewed in order to enable all parties to deal with the challenges of a real emergency. As an essential part of the training and exercise program, the emergency plan's strengths and deficiencies are documented and a planned course of action is recorded.
