responses to the Facilitator situation during the discussion. EXERCISE GUIDELINES This exercise will be held in an open, low-stress, no-fault environment. Varying viewpoints, even disagreements, as expected. Respond to the scenario using your knowledge

of current plans and capabilities (i.e., you may use only existing assets or resources) and insights derived from your training. Decisions are not precedent setting and may not reflect your organizations final position on a given issue. No-Fault, Low-Stress Environment EXERCISE GUIDELINES

This exercise is an opportunity to discuss and present multiple options and possible solutions. Issue identification is not as valuable as suggestions and recommended actions that could improve response efforts. Problem solving efforts should be the focus. During the exercise, if a player states that they are going to ask for/provide mutual aid, they need to state specifically under which plan and to which agency they will do so.
