Training and Exercising the School Emergency Operations Plan
This 6 hour training provides information and guidance on how training and exercising contributes to school preparedness efforts. The more your school EOP is practiced and stakeholders trained on its contents, the more effectively they will be able to act before, during and after an emergency to lessen the impact on life and property. Exercises play a vital role in your school’s preparedness by enabling faculty, staff, students and the whole community to test and validate plans and capabilities, and identify both capability gaps and areas for improvement. Participants will have an opportunity to conduct and design a tabletop exercise using Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) guidelines.
