    • DOB COOP Full Scale Exercise training participants are to meet at the parking lot of Fort Totten, preferably by 7:45am. The parking lot is located just before the security gate entrance, and a small sign reading “DOB participants” was placed in front of the parking lot.

    • If for some reason they do not find people there, the bulk of the training takes place at the EMS Academy CFR Training Building 405. If people are lost, they can ask For Totten employees where that is, and they should be directed to the correct location.

    • Dmitri Dits and Elidia Tennenhauser were the COOP coordinators at the training, and participants could likely contact them for further information.
