The Return of the GECCo!
In anticipation of release of the Twin Cities GECCo After Action Report/Improvement Plan (AARIP) in early May, a "Post Event" page has been added to the Twin Cities GECCO web site. Included there now, find slides of table top exercise team notes, links to two "First Look" presentations given to the MetroGIS Coordinating Council, and information about two Department of Homeland Security standards that were used to create the AARIP: the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP), and the Target Capabilities List. At approximately 90 pages, the AARIP is a substantial document that may have value beyond the Twin Cities region. To learn more, go here.
Comment: Granted, it's been slow going when it comes to getting the AARIP on the street for the Twin Cities GECCo. However, from the onset it was a goal of this effort to do it "right" so this event would produce a document with clearly defined actionable steps for correcting deficiencies. I believe you will find that to be the case when the final report is released.
