    ​​​Table Top Exercises

    Table Top Exercises are discussion-based sessions where team members meet in an informal, classroom setting to discuss their roles during an emergency and their responses to a particular emergency situation. 

    Exercises may reveal a need for additional training, changes that need to be made to plans, or issues that need to be addressed.  Exercises like these are very useful for identifying potential problems prior to real world events so that solutions can be implemented.


    Below are a few presentations that you can use to conduct table top exercises for your company.
