Why Play EEX-21?
EARTH EX® is a free exercise opportunity to self-evaluate levels of preparedness and resilience in the face of real-world Black Sky potential disasters. This year’s exercise presents two engaging scenarios that everyone in the world faces – uncontrolled fires and extreme flooding events.
Each year, EARTH EX® advances one or more of the primary Black Sky (prolonged duration power outage) threats to support preparedness and resilience discussions. This year’s themes include developing situational, understanding evacuation decisions, supply chain and resource management impacts, and the critical restoration mission.
WHAT TO EXPECT
EEX-21 is a dynamic, engaging, and thought-provoking tabletop exercise. It uses state-of-the-art video injects and a modern game-like interface to present the situation, new information and facilitate exercise play through the exercise landscape.
Play consists of gathering new information, developing courses of action, and making and refining decisions. Players receive all the essential information for their sector and other sectors that can influence the environment. There are two separate phases, one for fire and one for floods.
WHO SHOULD PLAY EEX-21
Everyone – there is an Individual and Family Functional Area that is perfect for everyone to participate. Six additional functional areas support in-depth play for organizations, businesses, and government agencies. Within those six areas, thirty-eight unique lanes address nearly all of the functions that make up the modern, highly interconnected, and interdependent world.
In 2019 and 2020, EARTH EX® was played in over 41 countries, with thousands of organizations and individuals registering to play.
