Emergency tabletop exercise scheduled for Nov. 7

Oct. 30, 2017, 7:00 AM

Vanderbilt’s Office of Emergency Preparedness, Fire and Workplace Safety will host representatives from across the university who play a key role in disaster mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery for an emergency tabletop training exercise on Tuesday, Nov. 7.

The goal of this yearly exercise is to provide internal operational stakeholders and external first responders an opportunity to collaborate on a scenario-based drill as part of the university’s ongoing emergency preparedness efforts. Last year the drill evaluated the campus’ emergency communication protocols, campus response, and recovery operations.
