Emergency Operations Center - GridEX Simulation
Tiffani DeFore, Emergency Management Program Manager, Western Area Power Administration
Managing a single EOC is demanding and requires extensive planning to ensure command and control during an incident.  Imagine standing up multiple Emergency Operations Centers to deal with incidents that span multiple States and service territories through a simulated exercise. This session will provide an overview of the planned exercise, recommendations to consider and the outcome of testing and exercising WAPA’s multiple EOCs which had to coordinate and collaborate in an effort to respond to and recover from Cyber and physical attacks during Grid Ex.
