5 Initial Planning Conference  Focus: Determine exercise scope  The IPC will produce the following: Identify capabilities to be evaluated Determine level of participation Develop Exercise Evaluation Guides (EEG) Review Plans, Policies, and Procedures Identify local issues/sensitivities Confirm exercise schedule

6 Final Planning Conference  Focus: Final review of exercise products  The FPC will produce the following: Resolve open issues/last minute changes Review exercise MSEL approval (in concept) ROC Drill Prep  Outcomes Resolved issues/last minute changes Exercise process and procedures approved

7 ROC Drill Preparations  Intent: Ensure participants are adequately prepared for the ROC Drill. Discuss the scenario Outline the process Ensure jurisdictional objectives are met

8 ROC Drill  Two day event (1/2 day, full day, 1/2 day)  Participants Evacuation Areas Pass through Counties Sheltering Areas SOC Reps  Preferred attendees Elected Officials Appointed Officials EMCs

9 ROC Drill, continued  Scenario-driven  Players respond from nodes (EOCs, DDCs, etc)  Response events followed by node brief-backs and group discussion of actions taken

10 ROC Drill, continued  Held in College Station (EOTC)  90 Participants per event  Single region versus two regions per ROC Drill Pros & Cons −More attendees per region with single region drill −More cross-talk between regions with two-region drill
