Modern armies have a mission to help citizens in different kinds of emergencies such as floods, earthquakes, nuclear and chemical accidents and pollution, as well as help in massive diseases. These tasks are very complex due to many organizations and social groups involved. If needed, they are forming emergency teams that act in challengeable conditions. Complex nature of emergencies requires advanced training methods. Simulation exercises represent the common way for efficient preparation of emergency teams. The simulations obtain exercise dynamic and conditions closest to reality.  This paper explains methodology, development of simulation exercise based on flooding scenario, the limitations, benefits and ways for use simulation exercises in the training plan and education curricula.
