CBERS 2023 - Exercise Design for Community Partners

June 7, 2023

Did your facility feel unprepared to respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic? Do you wish your facility had the opportunity to practice or talk through what you would do in an infectious disease outbreak scenario? If so, don't get caught off guard again. The Virginia Department of Health along with VHHA, VDOE, and VDOC will be conducting the Community-Based Emergency Response Seminar (CBERS) this Spring 2023 throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Join us and our community partners as we come together and learn the fundamentals of designing a training exercise. Exercises are designed to engage team members by working together to manage a response to an emergency.  This year’s topic Emergency Preparedness Training Exercise Design for Community Partners will include: 

  • 8 Steps in Developing an Emergency Preparedness Training Exercise
  • Participate in a Table-Top Exercise
  • Steps for Developing an After-Action Report
  • Virginia Reporting Requirements for incidents or events that impact public health

Target Audience: 

  • School Staff and Childcare Providers
  • Jail, Prison, and Detention Staff
  • Hospital Staff
  • Long-Term Care Staff
  • Behavioral Health Staff
  • Law Enforcement Personnel
