We call that "Tuesday".


p.s. On a more serious note, disaster exercises that include partial
failures of emergency response infrastructure are often quite challenging.
As I write this, the IT infrastructure of Baltimore is down due to
a ransomware attack.  As a consequence, while 911 is functional,
fire department computers are down.  If a significant event requiring
BCFD happened tonight, it would be challenging for them to coordinate
a large-scale response.
