Organizational Chart-Exercise Planning Team
Example of an Organizational Chart for an Exercise Planning Team
The following is a sample organizational chart for an Exercise Planning Team. Though it presents some of the basic functions of an exercise planning team, it can be modified to suit the needs of your particular exercise, its objectives and degree of complexity, and your available resources.
Note that a more comprehensive organizational chart may be required for larger or full-scale exercises. For example, in addition to the involvement of police, fire, and EMS are part of Operations during an exercise, it may be of interest to you to involve other entities, such as public works and hospitals. For further support to the Planning team, exercise documentation and evaluation may be joined by a simulation team, particularly in larger exercises.
Furthermore, Logistics may be expanded to include transportation, public works, health (ie. food and water), security, and audio/visual, and Finance may be further responsible to address resources and purchasing, as required.
