Formidable Footprint

Formidable Footprint exercises are tabletop simulations in which a disaster scenario is presented, and you and your group evaluate your abilities to respond to various aspects of the disaster scenario as it unfolds. Newcomers gain a better understanding of the kinds of help we can provide in a disaster situation, and veteran participants have a chance to refresh and practice their problem-solving skills.

The San Lorenzo Valley Emergency Network invites you to join us for Formidable Footprint exercises, held quarterly at Mountain Community Resources (MCR), 6134 Hwy 9, Felton. For exercise dates and more information, please contact Mikail[at]slven.org.
