Roleplay is an important tool in incident management because it allows responders to practice and test their response plans in a simulated real-world setting. This helps to identify any weaknesses or gaps in the plan and allows responders to become familiar with their roles and responsibilities in the event of an actual incident.
Additionally, it allows incident managers to identify areas where further training is needed. Overall, roleplaying helps incident managers to improve the overall effectiveness of their incident response plans and better prepare their teams to respond to real-world incidents.
By improving the speed and quality of assistance provided, preparedness can make a major difference in saving lives and reducing suffering.
An appropriate level of preparedness can also increase the value for money of relief action and ensure that scarce resources are directed to where they will have the greatest impact.
Its a well known fact that as we practice or do we get better. TMP provides preparedness scenarios at all levels of an emergency / incident / crisis phase for everyone to increase preparedness.
TMP simulation is of the actual action a user must take at that moment. Crisp, Clear, to the point instructions
TMP objective is build reflexive actions. With repeated (not a burden, but easy) actions to be taken by a user, the user is more aware, and information of what to do in that moment is more relevant.
Example: TMP trains the user to call your organizations emergency number.
Emergency response is time-dependent, Delay may exist in the dispatch process due to low situational awareness and the limited understanding of the incident scope. Delay may exist when responders are preparing to implement their task. Delay may also arise in the process of communication (especially so when volunteer departments are involved), information gathering, and decision making.
Fast coordination and decision making in the face of fuzzy, incomplete and imprecise information is critical TMP ensures critical situational awareness, which helps the responders to remove such delay.
