Week 3 Basic steps, exercise objectives and resource inventories

2. Here is the scenario – You are planning a tabletop exercise designed to solve a recurring problem in your pre-hospital system. This is an urban system with a total of 10 paid paramedics and 20 paid EMTs. There are also 15 volunteer EMTs. The problem is that communication among the various EMTs and paramedics and among responding units has been less than optimal. Problems include lack of interoperability and failure to use standard terminology. Here are the three tasks.

a. Determine who the players should be. Write an email notice inviting them to a with an explanation of what you hope to accomplish. B. Write a communication scenario that will allow the players to address the problem at hand. . Make a list of facilities and materials you will use in the exercise.

3. Refine your capstone proposal based on discussions during week one.

FOCUS POINTS

Having reviewed the basics of exercise design last week, this week we dig deeper. Look at each of the design steps so you can begin the thought process that will go into developing your exercise. The chapter on the TTX will take you beyond the discussion-based exercises.

One of the most valuable collection of resources you will use this summer and for the rest of your career is the HSEEP. We will use several of the files in HSEEP this semester, so look them over, ask questions, think about the ones your group will need during the semester.

As you develop your portion of your exercise, you will need to think about available resources. That’s where the Liberty County files come into play. Look them over with an eye towards your group’s scenario. If a resource you think you need is in there, you may use. If a resource isn’t there, it is not available to you.
