Abstract : The report presents procedures for the development of improved DCPA (Defense Civil Preparedness Agency) Emergency Operations Simulation Training (EOST) exercises conducted for local jurisdictions. The Research Directorate of DCPA is developing a set of Emergency Operating Planning Master Checklist documents relating to nuclear (NEOP) and natural (NADOP) disasters and covering zonal and areawide government operations. These documents are admirably suited to provide bases for local planning as they include recognition of damage from current estimates of nuclear attack capabilities and from natural disasters. Data are being developed for countermeasure actions relating to crisis buildup and warning periods as well as to post-attack recovery and remedial movement. The revised procedures for the improved EOST exercise program specifically include the use of the Master Checklist documents as the bases for the scenarios and message content of the exercises.
