Mission statement
Mission Statement

To build and sustain the capabilities of Virginia state and local responders and their partners in all phases of Emergency Management, through a comprehensive training and exercise program.

Virginia objective linkages
Virginia Objective Linkages

  • The NEP uses an objectives-based planning approach in which overarching central objectives serve as the basis of the exercise program and the primary drivers of exercise development

  • NEP uses three levels of objectives:

    • Principal Objectives: critical, high-level functions, mission, and priorities

    • General Objectives: operational priorities

    • Exercise-Specific Objectives: objectives, capabilities, or event-specific actions

Involving the whole community
Involving the Whole Community

  • A key tenet of the NEP is active participation from across the whole community

  • Virginia has expanded involving community partners this through several avenues

    • Training localities on inclusive response planning and applications

    • On going training of instructors on VA’s population and culture diversity

    • Customization of courses to include VA specific information on engaging whole community

    • Including community partners in VDEM led meetings and committees

    • Engaging community partners in exercises and activations

    • Expanding relationships with VOAD, CERT, private sector

I p w cycle
I P W Cycle

  • Two-year NEP cycle begins with the establishment of Principal Objectives and moves through exercises

  • Virginia interpretation was to move IPWs to a two-year cycle

  • Current view - this frequency is not sufficient for keeping abreast of changing needs related to events and turnover

  • Will align VDEMIPW and Grants annual meeting in 2015

Update regional state exercise
Update Regional/State Exercise

  • 2005 - 2012 targeted exercise levels

    • 2 exercises x 7 regions = 14

    • 2 state exercises = 2

  • 2013- present targeted exercise levels

    • 1 exercise x 7 regions = 7

    • 2 state exercises = 2

    • 7 technical assistance exercises = 7

    • Procured multi-vendor contract for exercises

Avg = 23

Technical assistance

New target of 16 exercises annually however…

Technical Assistance includes

Just in time HSEEP coaching

Scenario database

Exercise design review and assistance

Evaluator training

Technical Assistance

Focused hseep training
Focused HSEEP Training

  • Developing Virginia specific training progression

    • HSEEP Overview

    • HSEEP Design and Evaluation

    • Exercise Control and Simulation Course

    • Exercise Evaluation and Improvement Planning Course

  • Uses EMI online courses as pre-requisites

  • Continue to encourage participation in EMI HSEEP courses and Master Exercise Program

Whole community and subregions

Goal – to expand a locality’s community footprint while keeping the exercise effective with measurable outcomes

Virginia’s solutions

Include community partners in exercise planning teams

Identify opportunities to engage subregions of the state

Provide exercise opportunities for localities in annual Virginia Emergency Response Team (state) Exercise

Encourage training and exercise in preparation for specific local/regional events

Whole Community and Subregions

Apply technology
Apply Technology keeping the exercise effective with measurable outcomes

  • After Action Report development

    • EEG’s done in a facilitated meeting following exercise

    • Completed on laptops and reports submitted electronically at conclusion of meeting

  • Eventbrite registration with phone/laptop check in process

  • Scenario database

  • Webinars – plan review, evaluator and controller training

  • Use of social media simulation platform

  • Statewide exercise calendar
