Creating exercises to meet the requirements of the Regulation
Presented by: Manitoba EMO
Notes: This presentation provides an overview of emergency exercises – what they are, different types of exercises, and why we exercise. It highlights that exercises done to meet the requirements in the Regulation must exercise emergency management functions, in contrast with functions such as emergency first response. It also provides a preliminary look at what Manitoba EMO considers to be an “exercise of sufficient magnitude” for functional and full-scale exercises. Official policies and guidance on exercise requirements in the Regulation are forthcoming.

Local Emergency Response Control Groups and Community Advisory Committees
Presented by: Manitoba EMO
Notes: The Emergency Measures Act requires that a local authority have a Local Emergency Response Control Group (LERCG). The Regulation notes that this group assists the Municipal Emergency Coordinator in preparing and coordinating the emergency preparedness programs. The Act also requires that a local authority have a Community Advisory Committee advise on the development of emergency preparedness programs and plans.
This presentation highlights the requirements of the Act and Regulation. It then prompts local authorities to identify and discuss whether they have these groups and how they keep their LERCGs engaged in their emergency preparedness programs.
