Pneumonic Plague Tabletop Exercise


This PowerPoint presentation begins with an overview of the hows and whys of Thurston County's tabletop exercise dealing with an outbreak of pneumonic plague.

The presentation then moves on to the actual table top exercise, broken into five episodes. After each episode, a series of questions is provided to stimulate discussion about that part of the scenario--what would need to be done?, by whom?, etc.

This tabletop is specific to Thurston County but provides a basis from which to construct a similar exercise substituting geographically and situationally relevant information for another health department.

The file is large and it may be difficult to download over slow internet connections.
