Testing of Emergency Plans and Capabilities
UVM capabilities to respond to routine emergencies are tested through real life experience on a daily basis. The management of these emergencies frequently involve UVM Police, UVM Rescue and Physical Plant.
The capabilities to respond to, and manage a major crisis or catastrophic situation are discussed monthly at meetings of the Emergency Operation's Group and tested at least annually through a pre-written table-top exercise that involves members of UVM's Emergency Policy Group, UVM's Emergency Operation's Group, and representatives from selected (based upon the nature of the incident) UVM Emergency Support Functions. An "after action" discussion followed each exercise.
