Orange County ASHER
Full-Scale Exercise
Operation “OverAmped"

 

Operation Overamped was a 4-hour Full-Scale Exercise (FSE) designed to test Orange County public safety partners ability to organize, manage, and sustain an Active Shooter Hostile Event Response (ASHER) in accordance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 3000.

 

The exercise simulated a special event/concert at the Central Florida Fairgrounds featuring a controversial band. Credible intelligence indicated a known protest group may be present and attempting to incite violence. With this intel, preparation included developing an Incident Action Plan (IAP) to ensure a proper response structure and critical resources were onsite to manage the event and the potential threats. Additional mutual-aid partner agencies were also incorporated to assist with the response to the provided scenario.

GOAA-MCO - Operation
Fallen Bird Exercises

 

In the fall and winter of 2019, APC in consultation with RLKing Training and Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, conducted a series of exercises that started with a tabletop exercise, a functional exercise, and finally a full-scale exercise. Operation Fallen Bird involved over 20 agencies.

 

The Tabletop Exercise allowed the GOAA-MCO airport community to discuss CFR Part 139 in conjunction with additional preparedness, response, and recovery protocols, plans, and procedures regarding a downed aircraft incident. A follow-up functional exercise focused on injection-based information to allow agencies to coordinate their response to an incident.

Finally, a full-scale, one day exercise at MCO was conducted with pre-designated locations. Exercise play involved emergency response efforts responding on-scene to an unannounced Alert III, downed aircraft which resulted in a mass-casualty incident. Following the initial response efforts, the exercise focused on incident support and recovery efforts to assist family and friends of those impacted and facilitated the recovery process of the airport community returning to normal operations.
