Exercises are activities that consider or simulate a real life situation so that an agency is able to review or test procedures and practise participants in defined roles. As real life events do not occur that often, exercising is a good way to measure the effectiveness of plans and allow staff an opportunity to practise their skills against a scenario or in a simulated emergency environment.
