Report from Exercise Hammond 17th June 2021
Thank you to all the group that took part in the Norfolk Resilience Form virtual exercise on 17th June. Highlights included a test of a Whats App group for group alerting and a really good availability level if it had been a real call.
The exercise centred around a severe weather event that had power outages around Norfolk. We were asked to provide communications from several village halls set up as places of safety back, to the emergency control room in King’s Lynn for the emergency planning team. The scenario does lend itself to more thought outside of the exercise about how we could achieve the links using minimum equipment and personnel.
