City Officials Participate in Tabletop Exercise at Fermilab

Tabletop Exercise

On Wednesday, Mayor Brummel, Emergency Management Agency Coordinator Chet Wiencek, City Administrator John Coakley, Police Chief Ray Turano, Fire Chief Dennis Rogers, and members of the City's senior and management team participated in a tabletop exercise that simulated an F5 tornado. The event was held at Fermilab and teams from Fermilab and West Chicago also participated in the event. The event was coordinated and evaluated by DuPage County of Homeland Security and Emergency Management who indicated that Warrenville did very well. This exercise is a precursor to a full-scale exercise to be held in late October.

The exercise gave the participants an idea of what will be expected of each of them and how to address unexpected events like power outages, blocked roadways, and downed communication infrastructure. Each entity was able to identify strengths and weaknesses in their operations.
