During any disaster situation, it is important to be able to draw from all available resources. The special skills, training and capabilities of the staff will play a vital role in coping with the effects of any disaster incident, and they will be of paramount importance during and after a major or catastrophic disaster.

Participants in this workshop will be placed in tabletop teams and be assigned specific roles (e.g. spokesperson, scribe, stakeholder). Once the rules and the emergency scenarios are provided, participants will have facilitated and timed discussions with Q&A time amongst their teams. Each team will then provide scenarious updates throughout the exercise.

Learning Objective 1: In this train-the-trainer setting, participants will play a role in a tabletop exercise that they can bring back to their own campus.

Learning Objective 2: Participants will learn how to engage key stakeholders in a collaborative environment that promotes the exchange of different ideas in the context of a real scenario.

Learning Objective 3: Participants will learn how to affirm stakeholder contribution, reinforce existing emergency procedures, and deliver constructive feedback.
