Course Description: For an emergency management or security system to be effective, it is critical that personnel, plans, procedures, facilities, and equipment be exercised and tested on a regular basis. No amount of exercising will be constructive unless each exercise is followed by a structured evaluation that enables the jurisdiction or organization to identify strengths, weaknesses, gaps, and disconnects, and related corrective actions that need to be taken to ensure improved capability. This course focuses on a systematic exercise and improvement planning program as the primary means by which Federal, State, local, tribal, territorial, and other organizations’ managers can: • Validate the effectiveness of their emergency and security management programs; • Determine whether program changes are being appropriately implemented; • Evaluate preparedness capabilities to prevent, prepare, and respond to hazard incidents of all sizes; • Identify corrective actions that require additional emphasis or improvement (such as planning, training, equipment, facilities, or personnel); and • Generate data on exercises that can support a nationwide view of capabilities. Target Audience: The target audience for this course includes Emergency Operations Center (EOC) management personnel. EOC management personnel include, but are not limited to, mayors, city/county managers, general counsel, community/county managers, emergency managers, fire/police/public safety chiefs, public works and public health managers, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) managers, community services providers, private industry, National Guard Members, and key EOC support staff. Exercise design team members and Exercise Evaulators.
