February - TABLETOP

Exercise: Explore how VECTOR could support city-wide disaster response.

Gather to:

  1. Explore how radio amateurs would support communications during a city-wide event.
  2. Learn other’s perspectives and observations about the discussion-based exercise.
  3. Share knowledge about VECTOR capacity across the map.
  4. Practise coordinating with others across the city.

Participants will get the Zoom or WebEx link.

Join around our virtual table in a discussion exercise. Details in Operator Package.

More Detail

Member and non-member participation, perspectives, and observations make sure this exercise works well for volunteers. A small group of VECTOR and ESS volunteers tested the concept in 2020.

To plan our event (and add it to your calendar), please RSVP as soon as is convenient. You can expect to receive an e-mail with the connection details in late January.

Sign up online or over email.

In play, you’ll answer a few questions to set the scene across Vancouver. Get messages from all over the city to the EOC. Work together talking about what you need to respond to events and resources that the game throws at you as messages back up.

You get time for at least three 20-minute operating periods. A different member of your team will serve as the decider for each one.

May we enjoy a fun, sociable, and network-building event together.
