Alaska Shield 2016 Exercises are Completed for the Kenai Peninsula Borough

The Borough wrapped up the Alaska Shield 2016 exercise modules today. Module #4 was a collective tabletop exercise to evaluate the Borough's Continuity of Operations Plans (COOP) for the purchasing, legal and mayor’s departments. This exercise was formatted as a tabletop and held at the borough administrative building.

Module #5 involved personnel from the Borough's finance department that were tasked with temporarily relocating to the Skyview Middle School in Soldotna. In the event of a real emergency that prohibited access to workstations, they would activate the finance department’s COOP. Staffs’ objective was to set up primary functions such as generating payroll or producing accounts payables using limited technical support and supplies.
