Silver Jackets Webinar Describes a Huntington Levee Tabletop Exercise
On November 27, a Silver Jackets webinar was held to discuss the recent levee tabletop exercise in Huntington, WV. A mock flood exercise among agencies and partners was conducted. The tabletop exercise brought together agencies directly associated with operating and maintaining the levee systems, as well as agencies involved in coming together to communicate and disseminate flood warning and potential evacuation instructions during an event. The target audience was the levee owners/operators, local EMA, County EMA, WV Department of Homeland Security, USACE Levee Safety Group, West Virginia Silver Jackets, and others deemed necessary. Stakeholders left the exercise with a better knowledge of emergency actions to take and the proper chain to contact before, during, and after a flood event. The webinar outlined the important benefits and the how-to of an After Action Report.
The presenters included:
- Ashley Stephens, USACE Huntington District - Silver Jackets Coordinator and Planner
- Kevin Butler, USACE Huntington District - Levee Safety Program Manager
- Charles Goad, USACE Huntington District
- Greg Fuller, WV Department of Homeland Security - Region 6 Area Liaison
- Jerry Beckett, Cabell County Emergency Management - Emergency Planner
The presentation (pdf, 2.86 MB), recorded session (mp3, 7.92 MB), and transcript (pdf, 186 KB) are available.
