On 7th March, The Hydra Foundation ran a debrief with the key Senior and Operational team members of Exercise Unified Response, a large scale and complex, live and command post exercise, which was held between 29 February 2016 and 3 March 2016. Please see http://www.london-fire.gov.uk/exercise-unified-response-scenario.asp
How much data was acquired…
The debrief generated 30,000 words of meaningful learning, post event.
The team is presently analysing the data. This largest exercise to be run in Europe was a complex scenario that presented a range of challenges to front line responders from all participating agencies and specialist teams such as those that undertake Urban Search and Rescue (fire service), Hazardous Area Response Teams (ambulance service) and Disaster Victim Identification (police service).
The debrief focused on the strategic management of the exercise and also the tactical response.
