Join us at Upcoming HayWired Scenario Exercise Toolkit Workshops
The HayWired Earthquake Scenario explores a hypothetical, but plausible, magnitude 7.0 earthquake on the Hayward Fault and the physical, technological, and societal impacts it will cause throughout the densely urbanized and interconnected Bay Area region. The comprehensive scenario report provides a wealth of information spanning many themes and topics.
To facilitate the use of this information, the CRA, Earthquake Country Alliance, and USGS, with input from many other partners, have designed a Toolkit for use by businesses, government agencies, non-profits, community groups, and other organizations to plan, lead, and learn from discussion-based exercises.
End of March we are holding three workshops that will provide an orientation to a new Haywired Scenario Exercise Toolkit. The workshops are designed for individuals interested in holding discussion-based exercises within their organization in order to improve planning, mitigation, preparedness, and recovery.
Each workshop will include an overview of the Toolkit and its accompanying Facilitator Tools that provide discussion guidance and useful visuals (maps, charts, diagrams) for many potential exercise ideas; this will be followed by a group discussion-based exercise so that attendees can experience how they can put the Toolkit into action. Each workshop will use a different exercise idea from the Toolkit.
