Tweet information on the Caduceus Shield Exercise Initiative to your followers.

The Caduceus Shield Exercise Initiative provides Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) with a tool for assessing disaster and emergency planning, preparedness, response and recovery capabilities. The initiative’s exercises have been developed to assist MRC units with disaster and emergency planning efforts and to help MRC coordinators and members to understand how to respond to situations which they do not face on a daily basis.

Caduceus Shield exercises are designed to provide an opportunity for a single MRC unit or a coalition of MRC units to participate in a meaningful exercise with measurable outcomes. The initiative provides an alternative to the traditional time consuming and costly approach to conducting tabletop, functional and full-scale exercises by utilizing an internet based exercise delivery system to design, conduct and evaluate exercises.

Core MRC Exercise Series

The concept behind the recurring series of core exercises is to provide MRC leaders and members with an opportunity to assess an identified capability as cost-effectively as possible.
