All exercises conducted by Emergency Management follow the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program guidelines. If you are ready to request an exercise for your jurisdiction, complete the Exercise Event Request and submit through your County Emergency Manager. Please visit our Exercise page for more information.
