(Core Competency #4: Organizational Engagement) Every school will face a crisis from time to time, and we know that the handling of that crisis has far-reaching implications for the institution’s reputation. The actions of the crisis team – how well prepared they are, how quickly they respond, and how they handle communication – can make or break the school’s reputation. Tabletop exercises, which bring together members of the institution’s crisis team to deal with a simulated disaster scenario, are one of the best risk management tools available for emergency planning. This session will show how your school can make these sessions more beneficial and interesting, as well as how you can use them to prepare more of your school’s community for the inevitable crisis.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees will:

+Understand how tabletop exercises improve the ability to effectively respond to crisis situations
+ Learn best practices for designing and implementing tabletop exercises
+ Acquire different ideas on how to use tabletop exercises to more fully engage the campus community and raise awareness about what to do during a crisis
