Emergency tabletop exercise scheduled for Dec. 7

Vanderbilt’s Office of Emergency Management will host an emergency tabletop exercise on Tuesday, Dec. 7. This exercise will include stakeholders from across the university who could play a key role in response efforts during an emergency or incident affecting campus. 

Tabletop exercises are discussion-based sessions where team members meet in an informal setting to discuss their roles during an emergency and their responses to a particular emergency situation. 

This exercise provides Vanderbilt Public Safety personnel, Vanderbilt stakeholders and external first responders an opportunity to collaborate on a scenario-based exercise as part of the university’s ongoing emergency preparedness efforts. Last year, the exercise evaluated campus communication protocols, emergency response and evacuation procedures.  

 Questions can be directed to Caitlyn French via email at or by calling 615-497-4805.
