CONSTANT was contracted by San Diego County to coordinate a regional full-scale counterterrorism exercise involving play at three sites. To coordinate the exercise, CONSTANT facilitated a year’s worth of meetings with 50+ stakeholders. The exercise conducted included 1,200 participants, the County Medical Operations Center, and major medical facilities. The exercise started with a simulated cascade of vehicle-borne and active shooter attacks. Medical facilities practiced treating a patient surge while another cluster of agencies practiced managing a Family Assistance Center.
