The Tennessee Valley Regional Communications System (TVRCS) will be conducting a Table Top Exercise that will include personnel from the United States Department of Homeland Security, Office of Emergency Communications, and Interoperable Communications Technical Advisory Program. The exercise will be on Wednesday, at 9 a.m. at the Mountain View Inn, 2400 Executive Park Drive NW, Cleveland.
The exercise is focused on emergency communications and 911 Communications Centers operating on the Tennessee Valley Regional Communications System. The exercise will revolve around a hypothetical law enforcement incident that spreads from Knoxville, to Ringgold. Upwards of 15 local agencies will be participating, as well as several Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) offices, Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA), Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) and Tennessee Department of Corrections (TDOC). This is a table top, discussion-based event. There will be no actual radio traffic associated with this event, nor any field action.
The drill will begin at 9 a.m. and last throughout the day.
Notably, this is perhaps the largest exercise involving 911 centers.
For additional information, prior to the event please call Jeff Carney at 423 697-0910.
