5 [List Participating Agencies/Organizations]
Exercise Players [List Participating Agencies/Organizations]

6 Exercise Design Objectives
[List Exercise Design Objectives]

7 Exercise Play Exercise Play will be on [Date], from [Times]
Exercise Play will take place at [Exercise Site] and area hospitals Play will be restricted to the delineated areas surrounding the [Exercise Site] and area hospitals

8 Exercise Safety Safety is EVERYONE’S concern
Safety concerns override exercise execution Be aware that operating in this environment is inherently dangerous Controllers and Evaluators must immediately inform the Safety Controller or Senior Controller of safety concerns Actual emergencies will be identified by the saying: [“Code Word or Phrase (e.g. ‘This is a Real Emergency’)]

9 Weapons Policy It is the policy of the USDHS/ODP to ensure that every effort is made to provide a safe and secure environment at all ODP-sponsored exercises for its participants, observers/VIPs, control/evaluation staff, volunteers, and the general public. Federal and contractor exercise planners and controllers shall plan for and promulgate control measures with regard to weapons, whether introduced as a simulated device during exercise play or utilized by law enforcement officers in their normal scope of duties. For the purpose of this policy, a weapon shall include all firearms, knives, explosive devices, less than lethal weapons/tools/devices, and any other object capable of causing bodily harm. Qualified personnel (law enforcement, security, military, etc.) with legal authority to carry weapons who have an assigned exercise role (responder, tactical team, etc.) and have the potential for interaction with other exercise participants shall NOT carry a loaded weapon within the confines of the exercise play area. They may continue to carry their weapon only after it has been properly cleared and rendered safe (i.e., no ammunition in chamber, cylinder, breach, or magazines) and only after being marked or identified in a conspicuous manner (i.e., bright visible tape around the visible stock or holster). The use of an area clearly marked as “off limits,” and with assigned armed personnel to secure weapons in a container, vehicle, or other security area is acceptable, and should be consistent with host jurisdiction weapons security policies.

10 Weapons Policy Qualified personnel (law enforcement, security, military, etc.) with legal authority to carry weapons who are utilized to provide “real world” perimeter security for the exercise and have no assigned or direct interaction with exercise participants may continue to carry loaded weapons as part of their normal scope of duty. All other personnel with no legal authority to carry weapons shall not bring, introduce, or have in their possession any weapon of any type in any area associated with the exercise. Safety briefings will be provided to all exercise participants specifying provisions and policies regarding weapons prior to the start of the exercise. Simulated explosive devices, such as ‘flash bangs’, pyrotechnics, flares, smoke grenades, etc. will be handled and/or detonated only by qualified exercise staff or bomb technicians. Aggressive behavior will not be tolerated during exercise conduct, except in matters of self-defense. Examples of aggressive behavior may include but are not limited to: excessive speeding; uncontrolled animals (i.e., K-9s, horses, etc.); employment of defense products (i.e., mace, pepper spray, stun guns, tasers, batons, etc.); and forceful use of operational response equipment or tools (i.e., pike poles, hose lines used at full stream on victims, etc.). Exceptions to this policy specifying special mitigating circumstances shall be directed, in writing, to ODP 30 days prior to the exercise.

13 Exercise Schedule

14 Exercise Schedule

15 Exercise Scenario

16 Scenario Overview Date: Time: Setting: Incident: Weather:

17 Scenario Elements Devices Primary Devices: Secondary Device:
A secondary “recognition” device will be placed at the scene. Once the device is discovered, bomb squad personnel will attempt neutralization procedures on a training device at an alternate location not interfering with exercise play

18 Threat/Hazard/Agent

19 Exercise Control Concept

20 Exercise Documentation
Exercise Plan (EXPLAN) Controller/Evaluator Handbook (C/E Handbook) Guidelines Exercise Evaluation Guides Master Scenario Events List (MSEL) Timeline Messages Activity Log

21 MSEL Timeline


23 Controller and Evaluator Overview

24 Control and Observation Concept
Exercise execution is the responsibility of the Exercise Director and the Senior Controller Controllers/Evaluators organized by player location/function Experienced controllers in key positions Observers/Media remain in designated area

25 Observation Guidelines
Control and Observation Guidelines Coordinate activities with the Exercise Director, Senior Controller, and other controllers in your area Notify the Exercise Director and/or Senior Controller of ANY problems related to safety or scenario play

26 Exercise Control

27 Controller Functions Inject Enforce Report Attend responder “Hot wash”
Attend final Controller/ Evaluator Debrief at [Time] Complete and turn in exercise documentation

28 Controller Responsibilities
Senior Controller Monitors exercise progress and makes decisions regarding any deviations or changes Coordinates any required modifications Individual Controller Introduces, maintains, and coordinates exercise events in accordance with the MSEL Observes and reports exercise artificialities that interfere with realism Additional information is listed in the C/E Handbook

29 Controller Guidelines
DO: Deliver injects promptly as directed by the Senior Controller Notify the Senior Controller of events or need for changes DO NOT: Hold personal conversations with Players Provide extra or advance information to Players Prompt Players (unless directed by the Senior Controller/Exercise Director)

30 Exercise Evaluation

31 Evaluator Functions Observe Record key events and times as they occur
Report/Elaborate Collect information

32 Evaluator Responsibilities
Evaluate each assigned organization/player area Understand the exercise concept and scenario Know the procedures for the element being evaluated Inform the Senior Controller of problems related to exercise design Observe, record, and report participant actions Ensure collection of all evaluation data, EEGs, and materials after the exercise Additional information is listed in the C/E Handbook

33 Exercise Evaluation Guides

34 Evaluator Guidelines DO: Observe and record player activities
Document strengths/problem areas WRITE LEGIBLY DO NOT: Leave your post at key times Prompt players Get in the way Answer questions for players

35 Exercise Implementation

36 Exercise Artificialities
Artificialities and constraints, such as the Assembly Area, may detract from realism. Some other artificialities include the following: Surrogates may be playing in place of some key decision makers Real distances may be reduced to fit play location constraints The exercise will be played in real time. However, there may be some time jumps or acceleration to meet certain objectives

37 Responder Deployment Emergency equipment located in and dispatched from the Assembly Area Will be released according to the Deployment Timetable The Deployment Timetable is based on a real-time response to [Incident Site]

38 Communications

39 Problem Resolution Concept of “Earned Information” Communication

40 Exercise Communications
CONTROLLER/EVALUATOR RADIO NETWORK A designated channel to: Report emergencies or safety issues Report major timeline events Acknowledge communication checks for timeline status Please keep non-essential radio traffic to a minimum
