HSEEP Compliant Exercise Design and Evaluation
As trusted advocates to our clients, we utilize every opportunity to inform, train, and guide them towards the best preparedness plan for when the unexpected happens. This includes using our multi-disciplinary expertise to design, facilitate, and evaluate HSEEP compliant exercises, both discussion-based and operations-based. Such exercise programs may include in-depth discussions, seminars, workshops, and simulated scenarios to help our clients and their partners build capability and competence, awareness, and expertise.
Table Top and Full Scale Design, Support & Evaluation
Tabletop Exercises (TTX) involve key stakeholders discussing and evaluating the actual steps that should be followed in a simulated scenario.
Operations-based Functional Exercises (FE) validate emergency coordination, command, and control in a more formal, operational setting, usually in the Emergency Operations Center (EOC). It does not, however, involve personnel outside of the organization.
Operations-based Full-Scale Exercises (FSE) involve stakeholders from multiple agencies validating plans in a “real world” scenario, including personnel in the field.
Tidal Basin assigned a uniquely-qualified project management team with extensive, existing knowledge of our region to this initiative. Their knowledge and experience with developing products that close gaps and are responsive to stakeholder needs was evident throughout the project. Tidal Basin was effective at confirming the need/project scope at the outset of the project. The stakeholder working group sessions that were facilitated by Tidal Basin revealed a more nuanced planning need (a coordination tool instead of an operational response plan), and Tidal Basin quickly adapted to this shift in project scope. Despite this change, Tidal Basin was able to provide an end-product that exceeded our expectations. I found the team to be particularly responsive to communications (email/phone) and well-suited to elicit difficult/nebulous information from the planning stakeholders and translate that into a written product. Tidal Basin always exhibited great customer service throughout the project and I highly recommend Tidal Basin without reservation. In fact, I have used them multiple times!
We had initially thought we would be able to assess the damage and work with FEMA and our insurance carrier's adjusters by ourselves. It quickly became evident that we were going to need help. We realized we did not have the personnel, time or expertise it was going to take to deal with complex governmental regulations and equally complex insurance and adjusting issues, especially when it was taking all the resources we had just to get essential county services up and running again...your organization really came to the rescue. You delivered what you promised, and that counts for everything down here in South East Texas.
Severe storms dumped massive amounts of rain in the Southern Tier of New York State in the summer of 2006, resulting in widespread flooding.
When Hurricane Katrina struck, bringing with it widespread flooding and damage, the City of Slidell took the brunt of the storm. Located just 30 miles north of New Orleans, the two cities were both hit full-force by the destructive power of the hurricane. Unfortunately for Slidell, the nation first focused on the recovery of New Orleans. The City of Slidell didn't begin its recovery operations under Adjusters International had been hired, bringing the expertise required to turn the recovery process around.
