An Introduction to Emergency Exercise Design and Evaluation
Emergency exercises address and reveal the significant gaps between plans and capabilities. They are an important component of an organization's emergency planning and preparedness, yet few emergency managers and practitioners have training in designing or evaluating emergency exercises. In this practical handbook, author Robert McCreight explains the essential elements and core principles of exercise design and evaluation. The book focuses on natural disasters and technological emergencies that occur in communities of any size. It provides emergency planners, public health professionals, emergency managers, police officers, and fire fighters with an in-depth look at exercise design issues and an accessible guide to designing and evaluating emergency exercises.
