Question Monroe County

See below.wonder if traditionlly quite freqs will come alive?
STROUDSBURG, PA – On March 20, 2014, many Monroe County governmental departments and agencies will come together to test the Monroe County Continuity of Operations/ Continuity of Government (COOP/COG) plan through a table top exercise. This exercise will test how quickly and efficiently the departments can relocate and restore operations, should an emergency occur that renders the Courthouse, Administration Building or other Monroe County office buildings unsafe for operations for an extended period of time.
The Monroe County COOP/COG plan was initially developed in 2009 through the Northeast Pennsylvania Counter Terrorism Task Force. Monroe County was one of eight counties to have this type of plan developed at that time. This will be the second time since the development of the plan that Monroe County is exercising this plan, the first being in 2009. Both exercises were funded by the Northeast Pennsylvania Counter Terrorism Taskforce.
All media outlets are invited to attend the conclusion of the exercise, between 11-12pm on March 20, 2014. The exercise will be held at the Monroe County Public Safety Center, 100 Gypsum Road, Stroudsburg, Pa

I pass the Public Safety Center every day, will have to keep ear on the radio and see if any simulations are being done.

Monroe County is set up pretty good communication wise.. Numerous Countywide Repeaters available aside the routine repeaters Fire, EMS, Police services.

A tabletop exercise is just that. You will not hear any communications as a tabletop exercise is done inside and does not involve any field units. It is for the big wigs to run the plan and see if anything might need to be changed without utilizing actual units. The tabletop exercise uses a table mapped out for the area they will use and use miniature cars and trucks etc. and run the exercise. When they run the full scale exercise you will hear a lot of radio use.
