I haven't gone through one of these programs yet, but it looks to be very promising. Please take a look at the links.
What: Webinars for Neighborhood Tabletop Exercises January - June 2011.
Who: Recommended for CERT teams/communities or other spontaneous emergency volunteers (recommended that at least 3 people/group register & participate simultaneously).
* Free to participate
* Several scenarios to consider: earthquake, flood, hurricane, influenza pandemic, tornado, and wildfire.
* May work best if a group is participating together in one location.

This blog provides information to those interested in CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) activities in The Ojai Valley, CA. CERT works in partnership with OVARC (Ojai Valley Amateur Radio Club) which provides Ham Radio Communications - http://www.ovarc.org/.
http://www.citizencorps.gov/cert is a good place to begin learning about CERT. The fact is, immediately after a major disaster, each of us will be on our own while Emergency Services Personnel (Fire, Hospital, Police, Hospitals, etc) figure out what happened and how to respond. CERT teaches valuable self-preservation skills and empowers each of us to be of service to ourselves, family, neighborhood and community. By integrating CERT with Ham Radio, citizens can effectively communicate actionable information from the field to the Emergency Operations Center -- help will be on the way sooner.
