 Last Thursday (11 Oct) three Massachusetts Maritime Academy cadets enrolled in the school’s emergency management degree program travelled to Oak Bluffs with their instructor Ronald Bearse to meet with the Emergency Managers and Health Agents to gather information for a Capstone project, planning an All-Hazard Table-Top Exercise for the Island.

A tabletop exercise (TTX) involves key personnel discussing simulated scenarios in an informal setting and is conducted to review, assess and/or improve a wide variety of emergency management roles, responsibilities, plans, policies, and procedures

First-class Cadets (seniors) Michael Barry, Scott Camacho and Michael Oar, following a template they had developed, queried the local officials as to their objectives and goals in developing this type of exercise. This fall the cadets will develop a plan complete with the measurable objectives and metrics required by Federal Agencies when administering grants.

That plan will be delivered in December. Should the Emergency Managers wish (and they made that wish enthusiastically clear at the meeting), the cadets will return to the Island in late Spring to assist with the running of the exercise under the auspices of the Martha’s Vineyard Emergency Planning Committee (MVEPC), and to act as observers for the assessment component
