Training & Exercises

Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program

HSEEP provides guiding principles for exercise design, development, implementation and evaluation.

Exercises allow emergency management personnel, from first responders to senior officials, to train and practice capabilities in a realistic but risk-free environment. Exercises are also a valuable tool for assessing and addressing areas for improvement, while demonstrating community resolve to prepare for major incidents.

Exercise Types

There are seven types of exercises defined within HSEEP, each of which is either discussions-based or operations-based. Discussions-based Exercises familiarize participants with current plans, policies, agreements and procedures, or may be used to develop new plans, policies, agreements, and procedures.
