Over the years Suatrans has performed thousands of simulated exercises and has professionals and resources that help its customers to keep their Emergency Plans always tested and updated.
Check hereunder how Suatrans can assist you in your simulated exercise:
- Monitoring Meetings about alignment and planning of simulated activity;
- Availability of vehicles, boats, aircraft, equipment and specific materials for emergency response;
- Elaboration of a conclusive report, which includes comparative with previous
- post Simulation report containing observations for updating the Client's Emergency Plan;
- Preparation of Large Simulation activities through specific resources and specialized personnel.

What are the types of simulated exercises offered by Suatrans
1) Suatrans Table Top Simulation:
Held in a meeting room, this accident simulation model involves discussions about different possible or anticipated scenarios on the client's risk analysis studies. In this important exercise, after the accident report, the flow chart is activated as well as all stages of the notification exercise are triggered. Guidelines for response actions, resource releases, work fronts, and priority settings are also conducted. Every outbreak in the EMERGENCY PLAN is addressed.
2) Suatrans Communication Simulation:
The alert procedures and the telephone and / or radio triggering are pre-defined in the EMERGENCY PLAN. Its objective is to test the communication system, the activation response time, the efficiency in the transfer of information, the availability of the coordinators, as well as the substitutes (personal back-up). It also evaluates the preliminary information gathering procedures, worksheets and questionnaires.
3) Suatrans Field Simulation and Resource Mobilization:
Performed in thr client's facility or in sites at risk of accidents or spills, practical training of response operations take place, and it is essential for operational personnel to be familiar and well trained for: the correct use of emergency resources; obtaining greater knowledge about the products involved; previous knowledge on possible sites or regions of accidental risk.
4) Large Scale Simulations
This is a more complete and complex exercise, involving even the local community, with the intention of testing all the activities of a real event, foreseen in the EMERGENCY PLAN. At this stage, the simulators actually test the ability of the response group to adequately respond to an emergency. It involves a complex structure, including the participation of third parties (environmental agencies, civil defense, firefighters, local community, etc.).
Through a specialized team, Suatrans advises its clients on the organization of large emergency simulations in different scenarios.
The goal of this assistance is to help companies promoting large scale simulation demonstrating that they are really prepared to provide the appropriate structure for emergency situations, as well as to evaluate the effectiveness of their EMERGENCY PLAN.
This activity has as scope:
- Pre-mapping with aerial georeferenced images using drones;
- Identification of escape routes;
- Identification and training of evasion coordinators to act in the simulation;
- Planning meeting with Public Organs as well as other actions necessary to carry out the simulation;
Activities with the local community:
- Draw up a census survey door-to-door of the surrounding community;
- Identification of community leaders, through interviews with local population and area recognition;
- Identification of venue for meetings with the community involved;
- Carry out the dissemination of the simulation through the distribution of pamphlets, sound announcements and the fixing of banners and posters;
- Guidance on the use of means of evacuation defined in the EMERGENCY PLAN for the community;
- Develop links of trust and credibility between the coordinators and the community evasion program;
Execution of the Simulation:
- Provide the structure of Command Post, Meeting Point, among others;
- Helicopter supply for transportation of personnel and equipment;
- Provide manpower, vehicles and equipment to perform simulation;
- Perform photographic recording and filming of the simulation;
- Training of Evaluators on the simulated exercise;
- Evaluate the effectiveness of the EMERGENCY PLAN and propose improvements, if necessary, and
- Preparation of consolidated final report.
