TABLETOP STRATEGIC EXERCISE PLANNING

With any major event, no matter how well prepared you are as an organiser or safety provider, it’s critical that you plan for unexpected and dangerous situations.

Tabletop strategic exercise planning is a preparatory activity that takes participants through a disaster-related scenario. This helps the team to devise and familiarise themselves with an effective response process that can be put in place for future events.

WHY IT IS IMPORTANT

When planning large scale mass gatherings or special events, organisers work vigorously to ensure the safety of their attending guests. Event management plans, crowd safety management plans, contingency plans and risk assessments are all carefully produced to address all eventualities no matter how unrealistic they may seem.

Active shooters, terrorism, weapons, structural collapse, severe weather and lost children/vulnerable adults are all examples of situations the event team may face.

But how do event organisers ensure that plans will be fit for purpose if these situations should arise? Do key members of the tactical and operational teams fully understand their role within the command and control structure?

These are just some of the questions that tabletop strategic exercise planning looks to challenge and debate.
