Deployment Exercise

 

 

Citywide Deployment Exercises

Twice each year, Portland NET teams participate in a Citywide Deployment Exercise (CDE). This helps us improve our skills, make important revisions to our Operations & Communications Plans, and inform our training plans.

The next Citywide Deployment will be held on Saturday, October 22, 2022 from 1 to 4PM. We will transition back to an in-person format, with one (1) virtual team in a Zoom room for those who cannot attend in-person. For more information you can email NETDeploymentExercise@gmail.com.

Each team will have an Exercise Coordinator. This person will have information about the planned exercise and will serve as the teams Proctor.

Team Registration information will be sent to Team Leaders. Deadline for teams to register is July 31, 2022

Each individual must also register to participate. An individual registration link will be posted here this summer. The deadline to register is September 3, 2022.

This exercise is being created and orchestrated by NET volunteers. If you have questions or suggestions, or if you’d like to be part of the next planning committee, email NETDeploymentExercise@gmail.com.

CHEAT SHEETS

Sometimes our brains get a little mushy when we’re presented with a high-stress situation (like a major earthquake). Keep these handy cheat sheets in your pack to help you remember your training!

OTHER RESOURCES

Here are some other tools your team may find useful in planning and preparing for the exercise:

  • PBEM GIS Mapping Tool – This interactive map shows neighborhood boundaries, schools, hospitals, URM buildings, and hazards and may be useful for planning training scenarios. You’ll need to zoom in to see details.
