Exercise Library for Incident Response Staff
Mar 12, 2014

RAB emergency planners and resilience staff are working with the Environment Agency to design a suite of off-the-shelf exercise packages relating to different aspects of incident management, including:

Decision Making - to encourage the use of judgement to make effective decisions in escalating incidents;

Setting Tactical Objectives - To learn how to formulate objectives to deliver a professional response to an escalating incident;

Handovers and Briefings - To ensure a consistent professional response is maintained through handovers;

Business Continuity - To effectively maintain an effective response in the event of disruption to business;

Obtaining Mutual Aid - To introduce and refresh procedures involved in gathering mutual aid across regions and other partners.

The exercises are based on a number of scenarios, including flooding, oil depot explosion and pollution.
