Emergency Management System), the ODP Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program, general Emergency Management principles, as well as State OES guidelines. Members of the Talon Team of Anti-Terrorism and Emergency Response Planning experts have spent significant portions of their careers analyzing and assessing threats and conducting Tabletop Exercises as Agents of the United States Secret Service and Federal Bureau of Investigation, as well as in the private sector for other state and local governmental entities.
In conducting a Tabletop Exercise, the Talon Team will outline an Exercise Plan, identifying goals and objectives and plan the execution of the exercise to meet those goals and objectives. Talon will then develop the Master Sequence of Events List (MSEL) listing key exercise events and times, projecting responses to events or other devices used to move the exercise, including the development of a threat scenario comprised of a single or multiple simulated actual attacks and/or events, indicators and warnings thereby thoroughly testing the client’s emergency response and management capabilities.
After the aforementioned extensive planning for the exercise, the Talon Team will conduct the Tabletop Exercise in accordance with the MSEL. The Team will then evaluate and analyze the data in order to compile a comprehensive After Action Report (AAR). Based upon the results of the AAR, the Talon Team of emergency planning experts will draft a Corrective Action Plan, enabling the client to expediently and effectively correct deficiencies discovered through the exercise.
