Collaborative Training Tools for Emergency Restoration of Critical Infrastructure Systems

Large-scale disasters can produce profound disruptions in the fabric of critical infrastructure systems such as water, telecommunications and electric power. The work of post-disaster infrastructure restoration typically requires close collaboration across these sectors. Yet the technological means to support collaborative training for these activities lag far behind training needs. This paper motivates and describes the design and implementation of a multi-layered system for use in cross-organizational, scenario-based training for emergency infrastructure restoration. Ongoing evaluation studies are described in order suggest directions for further work.
