On December 11th, 2019, NVERS sponsored a tabletop exercise for first responder agencies and partner organizations to test the recently-developed Northern Virginia Silver Line Incident Coordination Tool. Over the past six months, an interdisciplinary planning team of subject matter experts from Northern Virginia collaborated with WMATA and Tidal Basin Government Consulting to refine the tool and develop a tabletop exercise to evaluate the tool's ability to enhance agency coordination across jurisdictional and discipline boundaries.

Better together.

Through strategic planning, priority-setting, information sharing, training, exercises, equipment acquisition, and policy-making, NVERS supports a regional approach to coordinated emergency preparedness, response, mitigation, and recovery across jurisdiction and discipline boundaries.
