Crisis Management Testing

Ontario Airport

Hart Crowser developed and executed a Table Top exercise to test managers’ responses to various hypothetical emergency situations. We also implemented a surprise field exercise to simulate a 12,000 barrel fuel spill from a pipeline break near the Ontario Airport. We observed emergency mobilization and implementation of the CMP and we followed up the exercises with verbal and written critiques. Lastly, we assessed the effectiveness of the CMP and provided recommendations for improvements to the plan.
