Aviem can provide a full range of exercises to meet client needs. Aviem can design, conduct and evaluate your exercise and help you determine the scope and objectives necessary to meet your specific needs. Aviem can design and conduct the following types of exercises:
A tabletop exercise is a meeting to discuss a simulated emergency situation. Members of the ER team review and discuss the actions they would take in a particular emergency, testing their emergency plan in an informal, low-stress environment. Tabletop exercises are used to clarify roles and responsibilities and to identify additional ER mitigation and preparedness needs. The exercise should result in action plans for continued improvement of the emergency plan.
A functional exercise simulates an emergency in the most realistic manner possible, short of moving real people and equipment to an actual site. As the name suggests, its goal is to test or evaluate the capability of one or more functions in the context of an emergency event.
A full-scale exercise is as close to the real thing as possible. It combines the interactivity of the functional exercise with the field element. The full-scale exercise should test and evaluate all or most functions listed in the emergency operations plan. The full-scale exercise is useful to test total coordination among policy makers, coordination officials, and field teams.
