On the day before the field drill, all participants, concerned government officials, SDRF, NDRF(if positioned in the district), Fire & Emergency Service and Police officials will meet to practice the simulated scenarios to identify roadblocks in communication and execution. Focus will be on the drill scheduled for the following day.


The table top is a unique emergency mgt. exercise which has been developed over the years of practices in various locations across the world. It will bring together the leaders of district’s response agencies i.e. Fire & Emergency Service, Police, SDRF and EMS along with the heads of hospitals, Doctors, Nurses& Non-Governmental Organizations.
As the scenario unfolds, the facilitator will ask each group to propose their response strategy. Such exercises have proven to reveal the strengths and gaps in inter-agency communication, discrepancies and overlaps in response planning among the various stake holders.
