This should be done within six weeks of the exercise completion to further reinforce any learning or special insights that designers and controllers wanted to impart. Finally the eleventh and last step involves a hotwash, which is an unstructured discussion. Some of these hotwashes can go on for hours but the most effective length seems to be usually sixty to ninety minutes. It comes at the end of the exercise involving designers, controllers, response celt staff ob- Essential Exercise Design Elements and Steps 27 servers, and emergency responders who played in the exercise.

Should we hire an expert to design an exercise? What are the expected costs of exercise design? What are the most important tasks and functions to exercise? Should we approach a local university for assistance in design? Should we borrow the exercise design of another city or town? Should we control our scarce resources and join with other communities? Of course, these are not exhaustive of all the questions and concerns a city or community may have in designing an exercise, but they raise important issues that should be addressed.

Always encourage players in exercises not to fight the scenario-it can undermine the best of exercises and leave those involved feeling disrespected or insulted. Looking at a typical MSEL page, one understanding that immediately arises is that the MSEL provides the organizing structure and schedule of key events, taskers, problems, and activities that players must resolve and complete using a combination of their training, intelligence, and team resources and the integrated application of best emergency practices knowledge.
