The purpose of the exercise is to allow senior managers from the University of Kansas Medical Center and the University of Kansas Health System to evaluate their responses to a major crisis. This no-fault, site-specific TTX scenario will focus on the University of Kansas Medical Center's and the University of Kansas Health System's ability to detect, prevent, and/or mitigate a terrorist incident involving WMD. In a real-world crisis, the University of Kansas Medical Center and the University of Kansas Health System would not respond alone; therefore, the exercise also includes representatives of Federal, State, and local emergency-response agencies. The scenario will evaluate how all responders and executive/emergency managers deal with the crisis and its consequences. The exercise should also help organizations identify how to improve future responses should a real incident occur.
“Kansas City Thunder” is part of the Silent Thunder Regional Exercise Series designed to allow collaboration among representatives from local, state and federal agencies with a shared stake in ensuring a positive outcome.
"The Mission of the National Radiological Emergency Preparedness Conference is to provide a professional forum for individuals involved with the Radiological Emergency Preparedness programs to gather in the spirit of continuous self improvement to share program experiences, develop solutions to common challenges, and create innovative planning, exercising and training methodologies.”
