Thursday and Friday was taken up with Exercise Phoenix - the Wellington region-wide annual exercise, based on a 7.6 earthquake centred in Petone. Two exhausting days - my throat was sore from talking so much, and we were really quite braindead by end of play on Friday afternoon - a good illustration of the need for regular shift changes. Exercising is really important to us since (thankfully) we don't get that many real events to keep ourselves in practice. We always find something to improve on, streamline, simplify, more training required, so while the exercise is over for many of our particpants (thanks team!), we come away with a long list of things to do for next time.
