Simulated Emergency Test (SET) – 2021

On Saturday, November 6, 2021, Boone County Missouri ARES (BCARES) held their Simulated Emergency Test (SET) in cooperation with the Boone County Missouri Office of Emergency Management (BCOEM), the University of Missouri office of Emergency Management and the University Health Care Emergency Response trailer, located at the hospital on the Columbia campus.

This exercise involved a dual approach, processing 12 points in the county and 8 points around the campus simultaneously in our 2-hour window.

The exercise scenario consisted of Boone County’s response to a magnitude 7.3 earthquake in the vicinity of Marston, MO. BCOEM was interested in local assessment, and response and coordination with the state response. There are likely damaged roads, bridges, cracked foundations, downed trees, toppled power lines, and much more in the area.
