Through the IEMS Preparedness program we offer clients the support to develop and conduct the following oil spill response exercises.
TABLE TOP EXERCISE - A tabletop exercise is a facilitated discussion or activity conducted in a conference room setting designed to test the risk of your operations and allow for analysis of the response.
FUNCTIONAL EXERCISE - A functional exercise is more extensive than a tabletop exercise in that activities are conducted beyond a conference room atmosphere designed to test the actual physical response capability and allow for analysis of the deployment.
FULL SCALE EXERCISE - Full-scale exercises are designed to mirror real-life incidents as closely as possible. This type of activity enables validation of a multitude of functions, personnel and teams, as well as to evaluate the interaction and coordination among all the participants.
Efficient realistic exercises provide your response and emergency management teams the opportunity to enhance the skills required in an emergency. Personnel taking part in the exercise program can develop working relationships, allowing complex decisions to be supported in stressful circumstances.
IEMS preparedness program offers well designed exercises to test response capabilities including plans, people, equipment and systems and can provide appropriate feedback for improvement.
