"FEMA Virtual Tabletop Exercises (VTTX). The VTTX program is designed for a 'community-based' group (not individual participation) of at least five or more personnel from local or State emergency management organizations with representation from all emergency management disciplines - public safety, public works, public health, health care, government, administrative, communications, military, private sector, non-governmental, and critical stress professionals.
