Program
:

BICEPP is hosting a Virtual Tabletop Exercise (VTTX) sponsored by the FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute (EMI). This VTTX will focus on reunifying unaccompanied minors and separated or missing children with their parents or legal guardians in the aftermath of a disaster. Accomplishing this high priority goal requires the efficient, coordinated use of resources and efforts from across the whole community at the local, state, regional, and national levels. By understanding approaches to reunification from across the whole community, jurisdictions will be able to further develop and enhance the reunification elements of their emergency preparedness plans. The VTTX involves key personnel discussing simulated scenarios in an informal setting, and can be used to assess plans, policies, training, and procedures. Lead facilitation for the exercise will be coordinated by EMI, with local facilitation provided by BICEPP.

 

Exercise Goals

This virtual exercise was created to support overall reunification processes and procedures by establishing a fundamental baseline, assisting in identifying the roles of lead and supporting agencies and organizations, and serving as a tool to enhance reunification elements of existent emergency preparedness plans and/or help guide the development of new all-hazards reunification plan updates, elements, and procedures. 

 

Overall objectives include: 

  • Assist participants’ knowledge, skills, and abilities to effectively conduct all-hazards emergency response.
  • Allow participating locations to share preparation, response, and recovery solutions with all participants.
  • Enable participants to better coordinate response operations with counterparts from federal agencies, state governments, local governments, private sector organizations, and nongovernmental agencies.
