DOD Pandemic Sim, JFCOM, Drill Watch


SILVER SPRING, Md., Nov. 25 (UPI) -- The U.S. Defense Department has contracted SimQuest to develop a training tool simulating an influenza pandemic outbreak.
The Office of the Secretary of Defense awarded Maryland-based SimQuest a phase II contract as part of an effort to establish emergency preparedness models to address the potential threat of an influenza pandemic outbreak in the United States. Under the phase II deal, SimQuest will develop a training tool simulating the spread of influenza.
SimQuest will also develop training models with various pandemic scenarios for military applications because of the likely involvement of the U.S. military during a pandemic.

Israel Electric Company to hold nationwide war drill Wednesday
The Israel Electric Company (IEC) will hold a comprehensive nationwide drill on Wednesday to mimic the situation during a regional war.
Workers will hold exercises in preparation for various scenarios including a direct hit on electricity infrastructure and a terror attack on an electric facility.
IEC Director General Amos Lasker said the drill was vital in preparing for various security scenarios and principally for bolstering professional cooperation between different IEC departments and officials.
"The electric company holds a large-scale drill like this once a year to assess our crisis management and operates in order to lessen the possible risks in cases of emergency," said Lasker, adding that during wars, the IEC had always operated to the best of its ability in order to minimize damage caused by a strike on electric infrastructure.
