Virtual Tabletop Exercise Series (VTTX) Guidance
Texas will continue to support two Virtual Tabletop Exercise Series (VTTX) programs in FY2015, the established FEMA EMI program and a new, regionally based, Texas Virtual Tabletop Series (TX-VTTX) program.
The FEMA EMI VTTX series has steadily evolved over the past two years into a popular and effective national program. EMI has managed to grow the VTTX each year with more scenarios to more communities more efficiently. For FY2015 FEMA EMI plans to offer 20 unique all-hazard scenarios to be conducted over 48 separate dates…all within a 12 month period.
The VTTX is conducted monthly and advertised on the EMI Web Page with a training opportunity announcement, distributed via multiple FEMA distribution lists, and other Emergency Management professional forums. Look for the note below on the EMI Web Page to sign up for the email subscription service.
