Exercising (Responding)

The entire purpose of Preparedness is building the capacity to respond effectively to disasters.  We do this by exercising.  The cycle of planning, training and exercising (responding) is the goal of the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) cycle.  This consortium aligns with HSEEP required policies and protocols.  This is an example of an evidence-based best practice of Performance Management thru Quality Improvement.

Exercise Methodology

Consortium members will be led through the Exercise Design Process as determined by HSEEP.  Local, regional, and state coalition partners will be utilized when appropriate.  We will follow the Tiered Response Plan as exercise guidelines to ensure a realistic approach to mutual aid and other necessary response partnerships.
