Exercise Unified Response
Exercise Unified Response is a large scale and complex, live and command post exercise, which was held between 29 February 2016 and 3 March 2016.
The exercise was conducted simultaneously at four separate venues in central and south east London as well as at a disused power station located near the Dartford river crossing.
The scenario was based on a significant building collapse, incorporating heavy transport and mass casualties.
All of London's emergency response organisations including local and national authorities were involved, together with specialised teams from across the UK and from Hungary, Italy and Cyprus.
The Emergency Response Coordination Centre also take part and the exercise is designed to validate protocols and coordination arrangements at the responder, tactical and strategic level.
