How do I request a mission number?
The first step is to talk with your unit commander and ES officer to gauge need and desire for an exercise. Your next step is to talk with your Group ESO or DO to coordinate the exercise. To make a formal request complete a request form on the Virtual Emergency Operations Center at the link below:
