Product Description


Master the Disaster!LIVE (MTD!/LIVE) is an online, web-based tool that will run on any computer platform (Windows, Linux, or Mac) that offers a simplified, step-by-step process for creating your own customized tabletop exercise (TTX) slide presentation for several chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear (CBRN) and natural disaster scenarios.

MTD!/LIVE also includes an expanded question bank, facilitator’s guides/scripts and image libraries, evaluation surveys, an additional nuclear disaster template, and a totally new module called Disaster Architect. With the Architect, users can do more than just customize static exercises with local information; they can also change the contents or structure of the disaster itself, altering the flow of the exercise with additional injects, or build an entirely new disaster scenario from scratch!

New disaster scenarios and exercises are saved online in the user’s own account and can be shared with other users in the broader public health preparedness community if desired. Other important features include a question bank organized based on the Homeland Security Exercise Evaluation Program (HSEEP) Target Capabilities List, a downloadable HSEEP After Action Report/Improvement Plan document optimized for TTX’s, and templates for building new HSEEP-aligned CBRN or natural disaster scenarios in Architect .

This tool is a major update of the popular tabletop exercise CD tool originally developed by the DeKalb County Advanced Practice Center and the Emory University Center for Public Health Preparedness in 2007.

It is now an online, Web-based tool that will run on any computer platform (Windows, Linux, or Mac) that directly translates most of the same functions previously included on the CD versions into a simplified, step-by-step process for creating your own customized tabletop exercise (TTX) slide presentation for several chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear (CBRN) and natural disaster scenarios. MTD!/LIVE also includes an expanded question bank, facilitator’s guides/scripts and image libraries, evaluation surveys, an additional nuclear disaster template, and a totally new module called Disaster Architect.

Most of the functionality of previous CD versions has been preserved for easy learning, and MTD!LIVE requires only a computer with slide viewer, Web browser and Internet access.
