Joint Regional Exercise, 2000 (J-REX 2000) was an ambitious, multi-functional, multi-agency exercise conducted October 12-14, 2000. While the main focus of the exercise was centered in Minneapolis MN, and adjacent Fort Snelling, the exercise also involved National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) participating hospitals in Cleveland, Detroit, Duluth, Indianapolis, Omaha, and Tulsa. As such, the exercise presented a unique opportunity to simultaneously and somewhat realistically examine the response capabilities of multiple agencies and institutions within the NDMS and to 'game' several aspects of the Federal Response Plan's Emergency Support Function 8.
