What is EEM?
Creating effective and worthwhile training events for your Emergency Response team is challenging, especially when they are constantly away dealing with real situations. The Exercise Event Manager allows you and your team to collaboratively create a MSEL for your Training Exercise. Team members can work from anywhere at any time and collaboratively edit events using a graphical timeline tool and map!
Why choose EEM?
Training your Emergency Management Staff for disasters and crisis situation helps prepare them for the next big event, EEM allows you to collaboratively and rapidly create your next training event scenario with your distributed team and integrate the exercise with your communications systems. Table top exercises are challenging to plan prepare and deliver in a cost effective manner with a dispersed and/or a multi-functional team. EEM solves this by allowing your multi-functional team to be able to rapidly create and deliver reusable emergency scenarios across your region or organization. EEM includes the following.
Collaborative Exercise Designing
EEM allows for collaborative exercise design from any location. Users can login and modify the exercise based on the role they are assigned. This allows for rapid scenario creation that can be managed from anywhere in the world.
As the messages are delivered, EEM tracks the delivery as well as any responses and displays this information within a graphical timeline. This allows exercise observer/controllers to view the staff efficiency by visualizing the content on a time-based view.
Messages can contain any type of information, including the following:
- Reports and Requests
- Plans and Orders
- Media files (audio, video, etc.)
Integration with simulations.
EEM is integrated into EDMSIM – a constructive simulation product. Information “injects” can be triggered according to events occurring within the constructive simulation. For instance, if a survey team is dispatched to a location. When they arrive in the simulation, EEM sends a message containing information related to the site. This type of interaction allows an unprecedented amount of richness and “free play” for information based events that either was not possible, or would be extremely difficult to manually control.
“Historically we have not had the time to create new and realistic EM training exercises, so we generally use the same one every year. EEM was a breath of fresh air, I was able to create a very quick event using the map and timeline and then have my experts in the field add the extra detail and structure to the scenario. It really paid off as the training was so much more realistic and everyone took away a better understanding of everyone’s role in the disaster response. A really great tool, we will be using it for all of our training events”
