The following Exercise Support Packages are a series of exercise packages developed in partnership between the British Columbia Association of Emergency Managers (BCAEM) and the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC).

These exercise support packages were developed to provide Local Authorities in British Columbia with a scenario-based training tool. This tool is easily adaptable to local needs, can be delivered with available resources and is economical to implement.

Through discussion-based questions and functional activities, participants will be challenged to explore and apply fundamental EOC process and activities. By conducting these exercises, personnel should be able to confirm the capabilities of the EOC to respond to various hazards, as well as identify areas where additional training, planning or resources are required. Subsequent exercises can then validate the efficiency of any “corrective actions” that are put into place.
