*exercise and drill:

1. A drill is a test of a portion of the response organization (for example, a fire drill tests a facility’s firefighting teams and 

the individuals in the vicinity of the area selected for that particular drill). An “exercise" typically tests many facets of the response organization and often involves close coordination between licensee (onsite) and State and local (offsite) response organizations.
