The objectives of the exercise were to send accurate messages through the American Red Cross 213 forms. The scenario involved major weather events causing outages and hazardous conditions. Forty-seven states, as well as Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and Canada, participated in the exercise, sending over a thousand messages.
