MKARNS Emergency Management Exercise

The Little Rock District Corps of Engineers hosts a table top exercise to improve coordination and communication with emergency management agencies and stakeholders. The Corp’s focus is to identify specific functions and responsibilities of other agencies and to explore the possibility of commercial shipping industry assistance on the Arkansas River during emergencies.

“Building relationships is key during emergency management exercises,” said Little Rock District Chief of Emergency Management Tony Hill. “Understanding and practicing everyone’s role in a simulated disaster helps eliminate confusion and save time during real time events.”
