    5. Quarterly Exercises “Quarterly TTXs are building blocks that keep us connected, learning, and training together” • October 23 – Winter Storm/Flood Preparation, Training, Rehearsal • February 12 – Earthquake, Building Toward Evergreen Quake 2016 • May 21 – Wildfire Preparation • August 13 – Pandemic Let’s start by just exercising, training, and rehearsing at the same time.
