Emergency Preparedness Training & Exercises


APC offers an abundance of Emergency Preparedness Training and Exercise services to all public safety agencies.  APC has the ability to develop and execute Homeland Security Exercise Evaluation Program (HSEEP) compliant Workshops, Tabletops, Functional, and/or Full-Scale Exercises based on local community plans, protocols, and procedures. Below are examples of training and exercises that we can provide along with associated example objectives.

Discussion Based Exercises

Discussion-based exercises include seminars, workshops, tabletop exercises (TTXs), and games. These types of exercises can be used to familiarize players with, or develop new, plans, policies, agreements, and procedures. Discussion-based exercises focus on strategic, policy-oriented issues. Facilitators and/or presenters usually lead the discussion, keeping participants on track towards meeting exercise objectives.
