This year's exercise featured the California Integrated Seismic Network's Earthquake Early Warning Demonstration System and participation from 53 City emergency operations centers, including some departments and organizations such as Fire, Water, Coroner, Sheriff and Public Works as well as the American Red Cross and Emergency Network Los Angeles. The functional exercise is a training event designed to test and evaluate selected emergency functions and the interaction of various levels of government, response organizations, volunteer groups, and industry in a simulated environment, usually involving key decision makers, the local emergency operations center and representatives from response and support organizations.
