Exercise Templates

The Homeland Security Exercise Evaluation Program (HSEEP) Preparedness Toolkit is a website with all of the available templates related to the HSEEP policy & guidance. DEM has adopted HSEEP as a best practice for exercise design and development, conduct, evaluation and improvement planning. A graphic representation of the HSEEP Exercise Cycle includes over 18 elements to include in an exercise process (pdf graphic). HSEEP is part of the National Preparedness System (pdf graphic).

DEM has created versions of some of the HSEEP templates to include instructions and links to relevant supporting documents. These templates include:

Exercise Types

There are seven exercise types. Four are discussion based and three are operations based. These exercises increase in their complexity. Here are a few exercise tools that may be used as aids for determining which exercise type is appropriate.

 

Other Training & Exercise Program Management and TEPW Tools  

EMPG Sub-recipients are required to provide exercise reports utilizing the content found in the HSEEP templates for the exercises that they report. DEM recommends the use of HSEEP for all exercises conducted at the local, county tribal and state level even if they will not be utilized for grant reporting.

The table below includes links to the DEM exercise templates.
