Formidable Footprint - A National Neighborhood Exercise Series Preview
Depiction is sponsoring “Formidable Footprint," a neighborhood tabletop exercise series created by the Disaster Resistant Communities Group.
The “Formidable Footprint” series of exercises will be an opportunity for community and neighborhood organizations, including Citizen Corps, Community Emergency Response Teams, Map Your Neighborhood Teams, and Neighborhood Associations to assess the ability of neighborhood residents to work together to prepare for, respond to and recover from a variety of natural disasters which can affect the lives of neighborhood residents, including earthquakes, flood, hurricane, influenza pandemic, tornado and wildfire.
The series of exercises will be facilitated via an internet based application entitled Online Exercise (ONX) System, which will allow each participating neighborhood to take part in the exercise from a computer in a neighbors home. They will also incorporate Depiction mapping, simulation and collaboration software to provide players with exercise-relevant maps with which they can interact, making the exercise more real and meaningful.
This preview webinar was hosted by Chris Floyd of the Disaster Resistant Communities Group and Ric Skinner, GISP, who will be facilitating the mapping portion of the exercises.
