The 2018 Ready Responders Boots on the Ground Exercise

Get Trained. Take Action. Respond

On Saturday, May 19th, 2018, an estimated 400 citizens from across the five boroughs will gather on Randalls Island to practice their response skills in the Ready Responders Boots on the Ground exercise (RRN BOG), a simulated disaster response exercise.

The RRN BOG will provide a unique opportunity for citizens and hyper local leaders of at-risk communities to come together to practice disaster response skills, leadership roles, and collaboration with experienced agencies and municipalities, and create a seamless disaster resilient community.

Disaster response and management skills will be practiced including volunteer reception center management (VRC), mucking, gutting, and mold suppression and emotional resiliency.

The RRN BOG will provide an opportunity for citizens and hyper local leaders of at-risk communities to come together to practice disaster response skills, leadership roles, and collaboration with experienced agencies and municipalities, and create a seamless disaster resilient community.
