FEMA Offering Assistance through the National Exercise Program

Sep 02, 2021 | Guest Author

FEMA is accepting requests for exercise support through the National Exercise Program. State, local, tribal, and territorial jurisdictions and their whole community partners can request no-cost assistance for exercise design, development, conduct and evaluation to validate capabilities across all mission areas. Fall 2021 requests for support are due by November 1.

Exercises are an important way to validate a community’s preparedness as part of the National Preparedness System. The National Exercise Program is a two-year cycle of exercises across the nation that examines and validates capabilities in all preparedness mission areas of prevention, protection, mitigation, response and recovery.

To help communities meet their preparedness goals, FEMA offers support for exercises at no cost from experienced exercise specialists in the National Exercise Division. Support could include assistance with exercise design, scenario development, planning, conduct, and evaluation in the form of subject-matter expertise, material production, or facilitation for selected exercises. The National Exercise Division also has experience in virtual exercise delivery best practices due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

FEMA is hosting a series of webinars to provide information on the exercise support process for fall. All webinars will cover the same content. Please visit the NEP webinar page to register. The webinar dates are:

  • 2:00 pm ET on September 7
  • 3:00 pm ET on September 15
  • 4:00 pm ET on September 23
  • 1:00 pm ET on October 1
