6.2. Section Exercises

The Section also organizes statewide exercises each year. Section exercises, unlike State-sponsored exercises, tend to be functional, exercising primarily communications skills, and are developed to attempt to engage all the counties within the state.
The Section has continued to work on the ARES/NTS interface and held two drills in 2012; one to further develop that skill and one to expand digital capabilities. Both exploited ICS forms.
