The First State Delaware Chapter of the Association of Contingency Planners (ACP) held an event on the topic "Increasing Realism in Exercises."  Anthony Buller, of FEMA was the guest speaker as part of the ACP chapter meeting on Thursday, August 27th, 2015 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm at the Paul J Sweeney Public Safety Building in New Castle Delaware. 

Holding exercises for your organizations' emergency, communication, and continuity plans are key to improving your plans and training your people.  The best exercises require realistic scenarios that grab your participant's attention and keep them engaged.
