1. Introduction


1.1. Background

Michigan is prone to bad weather, and in the Fall of 2013 and the Spring of 2014 we experienced more than our share. Extended severe cold weather damaged roads, caused water mains to freeze, and interrupted power around the state. That was followed by heavy rains which could not be absorbed by the frozen ground, resulting in widespread flooding. As the weather warmed, ice broke apart, collecting downstream into ice dams further aggravating the flooding.
Southeast Michigan, which suffered from the freeze, escaped much of the Spring flooding, only to be visited at the end of the summer by heavy rains resulting in widespread flooding in much of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties, and damage from Monroe to Saginaw.
We will always have weather events. We experienced several years in which those events were not serious or were localized. The past year has demonstrated that we cannot count on always being so fortunate.

1.2. Purpose

The purpose of this exercise is to provide participants with an opportunity to evaluate current response concepts, plans, and capabilities for a response to a widespread serious weather event in Michigan. The exercise will focus on local emergency responder command and control coordination, critical decisions, notifications, and planning necessary to save lives and protect public health and safety.

1.3. Scope

The exercise emphasizes the preparedness of the Section and the individual counties to provide auxiliary communications to served agencies in the event of a weather event which results in compromised infrastructure.
Unlike previous years, this year we will be making an attempt to improve our national score, as well as providing a framework which allows Emergency Coordinators and Net Managers to evaluate how well they are doing. This framework places additional emphasis on interaction with served agencies as well as operation under less than ideal conditions.
In addition, Emergency Coordinators and Net Managers will be asked to document their plans in the week before the SET on the appropriate ICS forms in MI-CIMS. Our served agencies are using MI-CIMS more and more frequently, and this is a key way of keeping them apprised of our status.

1.4. Target Capabilities

The National Planning Scenarios and establishment of the National Preparedness Priorities have steered the focus of homeland security toward a capabilities-based planning approach. Capabilities-based planning focuses on planning under uncertainty because the next danger or disaster can never be forecast with complete accuracy. Therefore, capabilities-based planning takes an all-hazards approach to planning and preparation that builds capabilities that can be applied to a wide variety of incidents. States and urban areas use capabilities-based planning to identify a baseline assessment of their homeland security efforts by comparing their current capabilities against the Target Capabilities List (TCL) and the critical tasks of the Universal Task List (UTL). This approach identifies gaps in current capabilities and focuses efforts on identifying and developing priority capabilities and tasks for the jurisdiction. These priority capabilities are articulated in the jurisdiction's Homeland Security Strategy and Multiyear Training and Exercise Plan, of which this exercise is a component.
The capabilities listed here have been selected by the SET 2014 Exercise Planning Team from the priority capabilities identified in Section's Multiyear Training and Exercise Plan. These capabilities provide the foundation for development of the exercise design objectives and scenario. The purpose of this exercise is to measure and validate performance of these capabilities and their associated critical tasks. The selected target capabilities (from Common Capabilities and Response) are:
  • Planning: Emergency Plans (ComA2.1.3)
  • Communications: Common Communications Standards (ComC1)
  • Response: Identify and mobilize personnel (ResB3a4.1)

1.5. Exercise Design Objectives

Exercise design objectives focus on improving understanding of a response concept, identifying opportunities or problems, and achieving a change in attitude. This exercise will focus on the following design objectives selected by the Exercise Planning Team:
  1. Resource Planning. Determine strengths and weaknesses in local plans for operator deployment, relief and support.
  2. Organizational Cooperation. Observe interaction and planning between and among ARPSC and public safety agencies.
  3. Response. Assess the ability of the section to adequately deploy.

1.6. Participants

Players. Players respond to the situation presented, based on expert knowledge of response procedures, current plans and procedures, and insights derived from training.
Observers. Observers using prepared Exercise Evaluation Guides observe the players responses, and attempt to find evidence of the players ability to respond to the scenario and execute against the common capabilities.
Facilitators. Facilitators provide situation updates and injects. They also provide additional information or resolve questions as required. Key Exercise Planning Team members also may assist with facilitation as subject matter experts (SMEs) during the drill.

1.7. Exercise Structure

This exercise will be a functional drill, assessing the Section, without actual participation by other agencies. However, local jurisdictions are encouraged to engage served agencies to the extent possible.
In accordance with Section plans, communication to and from the State Emergency Operations Center in Lansing will be via assigned NTS nets. Districts are expected to interface with the various nets in accordance with their own plans.
Injects will come from the SEOC, but may also come directly to counties and/or Districts from the exercise controllers. Districts and counties should ensure that the Section has up to date contact information so these injects may be delivered in a timely fashion.
Controllers will observe over the air behavior, but may also visit individual sites to assess, for example, available plans and procedures and operator support.
Districts should arrange with their respective Net Managers how messages to and from the SEOC will be delivered by/to the nets. Districts are encouraged to consider digital options (packet, Olivia, MT-63, etc.) for within-district delivery.
Individual Emergency Coordinators and Net Managers should consider using the opportunity to test skills required by their specific organizations.
Operating sites should be sure to have appropriate ICS forms on hand. Net Managers may also wish to have reference copies available.

Heavy MI-CIMS Use

      •   MI-CIMS includes those ICS forms of interest and will be used heavily. However there can be advantages to paper copies. Jurisdictions should consider printing blank copies from MI-CIMS to have available at key sites.

1.8. Exercise Guidelines

  1. It is each player's responsibility to attend to his own safety and the safety of his colleagues.
  2. It is the responsibility of each Emergency Coordinator, District Emergency Coordinator and Net Manager to submit the appropriate report to League headquarters and to the SEC at the conclusion of the drill.
  3. Each player should make his or her best decisions in the context of the scenario in keeping with the jurisdiction's written operating procedures.
  4. Leaders should expect that evaluators will be looking for evidence of progress against the Improvement Plan from SET 2013.

1.9. Assumptions and Artificialities

In any exercise, assumptions and artificialities may be necessary to complete play in the time allotted. During this exercise, the following apply:
  • The scenario is plausible, and events occur as they are presented.
  • There is no hidden agenda, and there are no trick questions.
  • All players receive information at the same time.
  • Timeframes are dramatically compressed

2. Preparation for the SET

2.1. Emergency Coordinators

2.1.1. Contacting Emergency Management

Well in advance of the SET the Emergency Coordinator should contact the local Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC) to discuss the skills that might be tested during the local SET activities. In addition, the EMC might be willing to participate, and/or have other agencies participate.
The District Emergency Coordinator should contact the Michigan State Police District Coordinator to advise them of the exercise and potentially have them observe or participate.

2.1.2. Interfacing with NTS

The local jurisdictions will need the assistance of their assigned NTS net (refer to Figure A.1, “Traffic Flow”) to contact the SEOC and potentially to assist with contacting other counties within the district. This contact should be made early so that the Net Manager can arrange appropriate liaison stations.

2.1.3. Contacting Other Agencies

Depending on local needs, it may be appropriate to invite other served agencies to participate in the local events. Consider not only Emergency Management, but also the Health Department, American Red Cross, Salvation Army and any other agencies active in a disaster.

2.1.4. Developing a local scenario

The injects from the SEOC, although they will be numerous, will typically only affect a few jurisdictions. As a result, the individual county will see only a few requests from the state. You should develop a local exercise, designed to practice those skills important in your jurisdiction.
Part of that local plan should be to test your activation and deployment procedures. The more realistic you can make your local scenario the more engaged your members will be.

2.1.5. Outlining the plan on MI-CIMS

While the jurisdiction's plan will likely contain a significant amount of prose and potentially many details, the other agencies only need to know a few specific details. To facilitate this, there are a number of ICS forms provided which are available on MI-CIMS.

Document plan September 28

      •   The emergency coordinator should plan to have the appropriate ICS forms available the week of September 28 (one week before SET).
To access the ICS forms, select Reference Info and then ICS Forms (Figure 1, “Accessing ICS forms in MI-CIMS”).
Accessing ICS forms in MI-CIMS
Figure 1. Accessing ICS forms in MI-CIMS

Clicking on a form name will display a (possibly empty) list of forms of that type which have already been filled out. Click the New Record button to create your new form.
All the forms shown will be for the current incident, TRN-2014-10-04 ARRL 2014 SET. When creating your form, start the Incident Name with the name of your jurisdiction as shown in Figure 2, “Start Incident Name with your County”.
Start Incident Name with your County
Incident Name Field in ICS-205A
Figure 2. Start Incident Name with your County

In this way you will be able to identify your form in the form list should you later want to refer to it, or update it (Figure 3, “List of various county forms”).
List of various county forms
List of forms
Figure 3. List of various county forms

You should make use of any forms that are appropriate for your situation. As a minimum you should use ICS-201 (Section B.1, “ICS-201 Incident Briefing”), ICS-202 (Section B.2, “ICS-202 Incident Objectives”), and ICS-204 (Section B.3, “ICS-204 Assignment List”). You may also find the following forms helpful: 211, 208, 205A, 216, 219-2, 205, 209, 215, and 203. The MI-CIMS Activity Log board should be used in lieu of the ICS-214 (refer to Section 3.1.4, “Reporting on MI-CIMS”).

2.2. Net Managers

2.2.1. Preparing the net

In the weeks prior to the SET, the Net Manager should advise net members of the plans for SET, and recruit liaisons and net controls for SET. Some nets tend not to have informal sessions, and some are visited only sporadically by net members. Those nets should consider email, Yahoo groups, telephone conferences, or other ways of familiarizing the net members with the SET plans.
During exercises, all nets tend to be active, and active at different times. Contact Net Managers of any nets that may have conflicting frequencies/schedules and arrange plans to be sure conflicts do not arise during the SET.

2.2.2. Interfacing with ARES

Each Section net has an assigned district (refer to Figure A.1, “Traffic Flow”). The net manager should contact the emergency coordinator for the district to decide how liaison with the district will be handled, whether the net will be required for in-district communication, and other possible activities during the SET.
Each individual county will be performing some local activities and districts, too, may have district-wide activities in parallel to the state activities. Nets should seek opportunities to assist in order to build the working relationship with ARES.

2.2.3. Contacting other services

Other Auxcomm services may desire to participate and may need your net to interface with local ARES groups or with the State EOC. The Net Manager should consider contacting local liaisons to these other services. Some services to consider are:
  • Air Force MARS
  • American Red Cross
  • Army MARS
  • Civil Air Patrol
  • Navy/Marine Corps MARS

2.2.4. Scheduling operators

Well in advance of the SET the Net Manager should assign net members for net control and liaison duties. If traffic is heavy, net control can be difficult after more than a couple of hours, so relief about midway through the SET should be considered. Also, consider the possibility of having a logger assist net control. Loggers do not need to be licensed, so this may be an opportunity to reach out to potential future operators and net members.

2.2.5. Outlining the plan on MI-CIMS

The Net Manager should have a plan, the plan should be documented, and major components of the plan should be shared with other players. The Michigan Critical Incident Management System, MI-CIMS, is the primary way information is shared among agencies.
Access to MI-CIMS requires that the user take training, and in general, Net Managers do not have that training. Net Managers should identify a net member who has access to this system, or should work with their assigned DEC to get the net's plan recorded in MI-CIMS the week before the exercise.

Document plan September 28

      •   The net manager should plan to have the appropriate ICS forms available the week of September 28 (one week before SET).
Review the section on MI-CIMS in the Emergency Coordinators section (Section 2.1.5, “Outlining the plan on MI-CIMS”) for details on how the plan should be documented.

3. Performing the Exercise

3.1. Emergency Coordinators

3.1.1. Activating the team

Each Emergency Coordinator should activate his program on the morning of the SET according to the jurisdiction's documented activation plan. For the purpose of the SET, consider using secondary or tertiary activation methods.
For SET, the Emergency Coordinator will have outlined a set of objectives on ICS-202 and prepared at least a few assignments on ICS-204. The ICS-203 will serve as a guide for briefing the team. In an actual event, much of this will have to happen in the first few moments of the incident, so this preparation is a bit artificial. Nonetheless, it should help keep the exercise organized. Most ECs have not had a lot of practice with these forms, so preparing them ahead of time allows the EC to be better organized at the start of the exercise.

3.1.2. Executing the local exercise

During the SET, the local program will practice and test skills needed for the local jurisdiction. From time to time, an inject from the state may require some additional effort but, in general, this will be minor.
The EC should periodically review the ICS forms to see whether they need to be updated. Some, such as the check-in list, can smooth the execution of the exercise if easy access to MI-CIMS is available.
The EC should log, or arrange to have logged, any significant activity on MI-CIMS (refer to Section 3.1.4, “Reporting on MI-CIMS”). This year there is a score sheet involved, so the EC should track those items that may contribute to his score as the local scenario is executed.

3.1.3. Interfacing with the SEOC

As in previous years, the SEOC will interact directly with the NTS nets, and those nets will provide the conduit between the local jurisdiction and the SEOC. The DEC and NM will have worked out ahead of time frequencies, modes and schedules for interfacing with the nets.

3.1.4. Reporting on MI-CIMS

During the course of the exercise, there may be several of the ICS forms that should be updated. But the most significant board is the Activity Log. When you first open the Activity Log, there will be no records showing. Clicking on New Record will display a blank form (Figure 4, “Activity Log Entry”).
Activity Log Entry
Activity Log
Figure 4. Activity Log Entry

Most of the fields should be self-explanatory. At the bottom is a check box labeled Post to Statewide Shared Activities. For this exercise, that box should be checked.

Share Statewide Sparingly

      • Sharing your record statewide allows all users of the incident to view your record. While we want this for the SET, in a real incident you should be cautious about what you share.
You may have multiple records. You may have notes strictly for yourself which have no sharing boxes checked. Depending on your role, you may have other sharing boxes available. It may be helpful to group different topics into their own record. The Activity Log can be a very useful tool.
Once you have created a record, opening the Activity Log will show you all the records you have created.
Activity Log
Activity Log
Figure 5. Activity Log

Clicking the Update button on the record will open the same form as Figure 4, “Activity Log Entry”, but with the data already filled out, except for the Details (Figure 6, “Updating the Activity Log”).
Updating the Activity Log
Activity Log
Figure 6. Updating the Activity Log

Notice that under Record History is shown the previous contents of the Details section with a timestamp.
Entering new information in the Details section and saving the record will result in the Activity Log record now showing both entries, with the most recent at the top.
Activity Log
Activity Log
Figure 7. Activity Log

Any record you share statewide will appear on the Statewide Shared Activities board, interspersed with records from other agencies. Note that the date in the left, gray area is the date the record was initially created. Records will appear in the order in which they were updated, which is shown on the right.
Statewide Shared Activities
Activity Log
Figure 8. Statewide Shared Activities

If you wish to keep a copy of the log for your records, click on the Generate Report button, then on that board, Create PDF. This will give a more printer-friendly version of the log than clicking on Create PDF directly on the Activity Log.
The Emergency Coordinator should also consider the Station Status board. This gives a good overview of the stations on the air (Figure 9, “List of active stations”), as well as providing a way for the EC to schedule operators to man various facilities.
List of active stations
Station Status List
Figure 9. List of active stations

When creating a new record (Figure 10, “Updating the Station Status (1 of 2)”, the top section describes the facility to be manned. In the Station Status section are fields for frequency and a drop-down for mode.
The Situation Update is a place where any interesting events or changes of status can be recorded. Whenever the record is updated, this field is blank. Older entries are preserved in the Situation Update History, which behaves similarly to the Activity Log.
Updating the Station Status (1 of 2)

Figure 10. Updating the Station Status (1 of 2)

In Figure 11, “Updating the Station Status (2 of 2)” this behavior can be seen at the top of the figure, although the section heading has been cropped in this figure.
Updating the Station Status (2 of 2)
Updating Station Status
Figure 11. Updating the Station Status (2 of 2)

The lower portion of the board contains places to maintain personal information about up to three operators. The EC can plan for operators for different operational periods (Shift) and at the end of a shift can use the Up and Down buttons to move the operator scheduled for the next shift to the current shift.

3.1.5. Reporting to the Section

The EC should submit two reports following the SET; one emailed to the Section, and one to Headquarters. The Section report is a spreadsheet which may be found in the ares-mi Library under Exercise Documents.
The standard report to the League may be found on the ARRL web site, entitled "Form A" (link below).
Michigan Form A
Figure 12. Michigan Section Form A

Note that the first few lines of the Section report are identical to Form A. The EC may thus fill out the Michigan form and then transcribe the first 13 lines to ARRL Form A.

Report on time

      •   Your Section report must be sent to by October 31, 2014. Your Form A must be sent to by February 3, 2015.
ARRL Form A is a multi-page form and is not reproduced here.
The Michigan Form A may be downloaded from

3.2. Net Managers

3.2.1. Activating the net

For the purposes of the Simulated Emergency Test, the Net Manager should activate the net according to the net's written emergency activation protocol. The Net Manager might consider taking the opportunity to test a secondary or tertiary protocol.

3.2.2. Rotating net controls

Whenever a net gets very busy, the task of Net Control can get to be quite draining. Under stressful conditions, even two hours as net control can be quite tiring. The Net Manager should consider rotating net controls once or twice during the drill, to exercise net handover procedures and to give additional operators the chance to act as net control under intense conditions, as well as to provide relief.
The Net Manager should also consider providing net controls with a logger to ease the burden of running the net.

3.2.3. Interfacing with the SEOC

Each Net Manager must assign a station to act as liaison to the SEOC. The SEOC will be active on the standard emergency frequencies and modes.
SEOC Operating Schedule
SEOC Schedule
Figure 13. SEOC Operating Schedule

3.2.4. Reporting on MI-CIMS

Most Net Managers do not have access to MI-CIMS, but to the extent possible, the Net Manager should attempt to do the same sorts of reporting described in Section 3.1.4, “Reporting on MI-CIMS”. Perhaps there are net members who can assist the Net Manager with keeping up on MI-CIMS, perhaps the Net Manager can get some assistance from his DEC.

3.2.5. Reporting to the Section

During the SET, the Net Manager should be keeping track of the items on the Michigan Form B (Figure 14, “Michigan Section Form B”). Following the SET the form should be completed and sent to .
Michigan Form A

4. Exercise Scenario

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan experienced record-setting extreme cold temperatures with periods of rapid warming. This trend moved south over the following weeks. This resulted in considerable infrastructure damage due to freeze-thaw effects, as well as significant flooding in some places.
The situation continues to evolve and conditions are expected to degrade further as the ground begins to thaw and expand, resulting in broken water and sewer lines. Numerous residents remain on temporary water supply via garden houses carrying water from homes that still have service. No injuries or fatalities have been reported. There has been no reported power outages throughout the entire Upper Peninsula related to this event. No American Red Cross (ARC) shelters have been opened.
The Marquette County Water Treatment Facility is near capacity of 3.2 million gallons of water being pumped to residents/businesses in the City of Ishpeming and Negaunee (approximately 13,000 people). Negaunee alone is pumping over 1.3 (million gallons per day) and they would normally pump 500,000 - 600,000 gallons per day. The City of Negaunee is shutting off mains throughout the city in order to help alleviate some of the stress of the system, which means residents and businesses are without water.
MDHS Native Affairs Director is doing a friendly inquiry to her tribal contacts to see if there are any issues or resource needs related to these disasters. MDHS has been in touch with local MDHS Director in Marquette. She has not been contacted for response efforts. We continue to monitor and review our plans.
Marquette County has had 5 main breaks in the last 24-hour period on Maas Street, which is a thoroughfare to US 41 in Negaunee. Residents are being re-routed. Each time crews fix a section of the street there is another break in front of the one they fixed. At this time, that break is 80 feet long. These are cast iron pipes that were part of a mitigation project that was completed after a freeze in 1994. During this process, a mobile excavator was almost lost due to the ground sinking.
At least 8 homes on the Manistee River and 19 roads were affected. Contact made with homeowners on River Road; some homes de-energized on River Road and Chippewa Road. Flood waters are receding along the Manistee River, and residents are cleaning up damage. Several roads remain closed, and many are partially open or temporarily/partially repaired.
In Newaygo County, there is no count of propane tanks that may be missing. The county expressed concern on the safety of boat access sites. The county is requesting building inspectors to evaluate homes that were impacted by the flood waters. A private company with propane extraction equipment will be assisting Newaygo County after their job is complete in Osceola County. To date 165 homes have been affected by floodwaters and wind damage. The extent of the damage to the homes is unknown at time. Damage Assessment is ongoing and will continue as the flood waters recede further. The following areas are still inaccessible: Sarrell Drive, City of Newaygo - 9 homes; Old Women's Bend, Garfield Township - 9 homes; Anderson Flat's, Garfield Township - 10 homes, 1 campground; Sycamore Flats, Ashland Township - 12 homes; Sugar Bush and Maple Drive, Ashland Township - 20 homes; Bell Meadow, Bridgeton Township - 6 homes; Riverview Drive, Bridgeton Township - 8 homes; Riverman Drive, Bridgeton Township - 19 homes; Main Street, Bridgeton Township - 13 homes; South River Road, Bridgeton Township - 7 homes.
Osceola County has been retrieving propane tanks from waterways, as of 1700 yesterday 41 have been recovered. Osceola has requested building inspectors to evaluate homes that were impacted by the flood waters, LARA is providing inspectors to help coordinate this effort. Lt Josh Lator (MSP) is functioning as Osceola County's Operations Section Chief. Osceola County has reported 105 homes impacted. Osceola County requested MSP Aviation Unit to fly the Muskegon River area to search for missing propane tanks. MSP Aviation Lt. Lawrence will be meeting with Osceola County staff, and Mecosta County EM at the Big Rapids airport.
Mason County has reported 56 homes impacted. The Pere Marquette River is receding and is below flood stage. Hamlin Lake (which is fed by the Sauble River) has lost a significant portion of its ice cover, so the threat to Hamlin Dam and/or ice jams is decreased. Road Commission is working on re-assessing and repairing affected roads.
Michigan State Police, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division has obtained a permit for The Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division to allow for the transportation of more than one propane tank by a hauler. This permit is applicable only in the counties of Newaygo and Osceola and for a 100 mile radius of the propane tanks point of origin. The hauler must have their copy of the permit with them at all times.
As requested by Osceola Co, MDOT has deployed 8 class III barricades and 2 road closed signs for both sides of 85th Ave. bridge.
The Auxcomm Emergency Management Coordinator has been paged to provide backup communications due to the widespread infrastructure damage.
