ISC Supports Special Event Planning for Major Country Music Festival

Integrated Solutions Consulting (ISC) developed and facilitated a Hazardous Material Tabletop Exercise for Becker County MN that tests various vital aspects of their Special Events Operations and Management Planning.  This tabletop exercise was in preparation of the Annual We Fest Country Music Festival. WE Fest is an annual three-day country music festival that is now one of the biggest country festivals in the nation.



ISC has been engaged by the Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) to perform general consulting services.  As part of this project, ISC was tasked with assisting in the development, conduct, and evaluation of a full-scale point of dispensing (POD) exercise.

The exercise, which was a continuation of a tabletop exercise conducted in 2011, provided an opportunity to utilize an enhanced building block approach to exercise design, and this approach ensured that planning was validated during the exercise.  In addition, ISC conducted throughput measurement and analysis in order to meet a Cities Readiness Initiative (CRI) requirement.
