Transportation Accident Exercise Scenarios

Transportation Accident Exercise

An event tests the integrated capability and a major portion of the basic elements existing within emergency preparedness plans and organizations.

In exercises, players respond to an accident scenario as they would in an actual emergency.

Objectives are usually comprehensive (but not necessarily all-encompassing) in scope. Exercises are evaluated events only. Controllers do not provide training to players during the event. All major improvement items identified as a result should be corrected.

Spent Nuclear Fuel Transportation Accident Exercise Scenario

This scenario provides the planning instructions, guidance, and evaluation forms necessary to conduct an exercise involving a highway shipment of spent nuclear fuel. This exercise manual is one in a series of five scenarios developed by the Department of Energy Transportation Emergency Preparedness Program. Responding agencies may include several or more of the following: local municipal and county fire, police, sheriff, and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel; state, local, and federal emergency response teams; emergency response contractors; and other emergency response resources that could potentially be provided by the carrier and the originating facility (shipper).

This scenario provides the guidance for conducting the exercise in a safe, efficient, coordinated manner, and provides a historical record of the exercise.
