2018 NSPA Table Top & Full Scale Exercise Series

 Please Read Carefully (the fine print):

When you register for this exercise series you are committing to the following:

  1. Minimum People Involved: Exercises cannot be conducted by a single individual for any facility. You will need to involve, at a minimum, an administrative leader, a clinical leader, and a facilities leader as your Exercise Team for the planning meetings and the Table Top Exercise. Each of these people must register individually. NSPA will not certify completion for any facility or organization not meeting this standard. If you have questions as to what is appropriate, please feel free to reach out to us!
  2. Planning Meeting Attendance: Every effort should be made to attend all the planning meetings (all conducted virtually, via WebEx, dates below) as they are happening. This provides for optimal planning and allows you to ask questions and receive answers. Attending will best prepare you for the actual exercises. Failure to complete the planning meetings may result in exclusion from the remainder of the exercise series.
  3. Tabletop Exercise Attendance: Your Exercise Team must attend one of three TTX offerings. This is 100% mandatory. Both tabletop exercises (you must attend only one) will take place at the Vinton War Memorial, 814 East Washington Ave, Vinton, VA, 24179.
  4. VHASS Traning: Participation will include usage of the Virginia Healthcare Alerting and Status System (VHASS). If you are not already familiar with VHASS, you will be required to complete a 30-minute training module (recorded presentation) so you'll be fully prepared to complete the Full-Scale Exercise. Additionally, NSPA staff are available to assist in your training on this platform.
  5. Full-Scale Exercise Participation: Your participation in the Full-Scale Exercise on Tuesday, October 23, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. is mandatory for NSPA to certify completion of this requirement.
