Words into Action guidelines: Design and conduct of simulation exercises – SIMEX

Simulation Exercises (SIMEX) are used by emergency managers to take proactive measures in preparing for effective response. Systems, emergency procedures, contingency plans, response mechanisms, and equipment are tested in these exercises. They contribute to team building and evaluating response skills. Improvements are made in an organization’s preparedness capacities based on the SIMEX results. This concise guideline on design and conduct of simulation exercises (SIMEX) is part of the Words into Action Guideline series on practical implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction Priority 4 component on enhancing disaster preparedness for effective response. It targets emergency managers, relevant government offcials and many other actors responsible for disaster preparedness planning and drills. It consists of three main sections: General Information on Simulation Exercise, or SIMEX; the Process; and Existing Guidance.
