Apalachee RPC staff worked with the Florida Division of Emergency Management to assist in the planning, design and evaluation of the 2019 Statewide Hurricane Exercise on May 4-6 of 2019. Staff collaborated with state partners to create a Master Scenario and Events List to ensure all 18 Emergency Support Functions were able to exercise their respective capabilities in response to a major hurricane impacting the State of Florida.
Additionally, Apalachee RPC staff provided evaluators at the State Emergency Operations Center to document strengths and areas for improvement identified during the exercise. This information was used to develop an After-Action Report and Improvement Plan. Implementation of the report’s recommendations aid in fine tuning the State’s response capabilities.
