hab action based hab exercise
HAB Action Based (HAB) Exercise

REP Hostile Action Based Exercise Tool Kit

  • The purpose of the FEMA REPP HAB Exercise Tool Kit is to provide Offsite Response Organizations (OROs) with several different “tools” which may be used to facilitate reviews of plans and procedures in advance of an HAB REPP exercise. The use of any or all the tools presented in the Tool Kit is optional.

rep core concepts course
REP Core Concepts Course

E/L/B-339 / RCCC (1.5 days) (REP Instructor Cadre)

  • This course focuses on the nuclear power plant off-site radiological emergency preparedness program. Addresses the REP Program history and sentinel events, federal regulatory policies, basic radiation principles, REP planning guidance (planning standards), REP demonstration guidance (exercise evaluation areas) and the REP Disaster Initiated Review (DIR) process.
  • At the successful completion of this course, the student will have satisfied the instructor-led training prerequisites for both the E/L-340 REP Plan Review Course (RPPR) and the E/L-304 REP Exercise Evaluator Course (REEC).
rep plan review course
REP Plan Review Course

E/L/B-340 / RPPR (3.0 days) (REP Instructor Cadre)

  • This course focuses on the review of REP emergency plans, specifically the NUREG 0654 planning standards that address the public’s health and safety.
  • The revised REP Plan Review Course will include training based on the Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG) -101, familiarization of Hostile Action Based (HAB) plan review, annual plan review and the Annual Letter of Certification Review Guide process.
rep exercise evaluator course
REP Exercise Evaluator Course

E/L/B-304 / REEC (3.5 days) (REP Instructor Cadre)

  • Topics include regulations and guidelines for evaluating REP exercises, in preparation of, observations during, post-exercise activities, and techniques for exercise evaluation.
  • This also includes the observation of video vignettes of REP exercises and the development of exercise narratives submitted to the REP Exercise Evaluation Tool (EET), for review by REP adjunct instructors.
  • Federal, State, Local, Tribal, and utility personnel who are involved in the development of off-site REP plans and exercises may apply. This course fulfills the credentialing training requirements for becoming a Type III REP Exercise Evaluator.
radiological accident assessment course
Radiological Accident Assessment Course

E/L/B-341 / RAAC (5.0 days) (REP Instructor Cadre)

  • This course addresses radiological consequences of accidents involving radiological materials. This includes accidents or incidents involving commercial power reactors, lost sources, dispersion devices, and transportation.
    • The focus of the course is concepts involved in formulating protective action recommendations following a radiological accident, such as dose quantities, atmospheric dispersion, dose projection, protective action guides, and derived intervention levels. Participants engage in problem-solving sessions and a tabletop exercise.
rep disaster initiated review course
REP Disaster Initiated Review Course

IS-307 / RDIR (1.0 days) (REP Instructor Cadre)

  • This course is designed to provide the student with fundamental knowledge of the Disaster Initiated Review (DIR) Standard Operating Procedure and Post Disaster Assessment of Offsite Capabilities Checklists.
    • At the end of this course, participants should be able to demonstrate an awareness of the responsibilities, procedures and protocols for the accomplishment of a DIR and demonstrate an ability to function as a member of a DIR Team by participating in a DIR table-top exercise.Future development of Virtual Tabletop Exercise (VTTX)

PER-904 / RERO (5.0 days)

  • This course offers lectures, hands-on training, and team exercises.
    • The lectures include operational-level radiological concepts using guidance and information from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, U.S. Department of Energy, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Use of the hands-on training modules will provide students with the knowledge and skills to perform in a radiological emergency response operation.
    • The Radiological Emergency Response Operations course culminates on the fifth day with a final exercise involving the emergency response operations skills and training learned during the course.
advanced radiological incident operations

PER-905 / ARIO (5.0 days)

  • This course provides participants with the advanced skills necessary to safely respond to and manage incidents involving radiological hazards. Participants apply these skills in tabletop exercises based on realistic radiological incident scenarios, set within the ICS structure. At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to accomplish the following:
    • Identify hazards created by a release of nuclear power plant radioactivity
    • Outline protective actions that must be taken for the public responders during an incident
    • Apply relocation, re-entry, and return procedures relative to ingestion exposure pathways.

Radiological-Integrated Capstone Event (R-ICE)

Combined PER-904 & 905 / RERO & ARIO (5.0 days)

  • Hosted by Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) Noble Training Facility (NTF) Anniston, AL
  • REROparticipants will focus on 1st Responder hands-on equipment skills, and responsibilities as members of a field monitoring team during radiological Plume and Ingestion Pathway incidents.
  • ARIO participants will focus on Emergency Operations Center (EOC) responsibilities, coordination of the field monitoring teams, data collection, and developing recommendations for protective actions.

  • Ensures NIMS and NRF consistent plans: The EOPT coaches planners through the development process. The template provides suggested content and a pop-up NIMS Coach that presents section-by-section guidance for NIMS consistency. The Planning Coach that provides immediate access to current FEMA planning guidance.
  • Reduces likelihood of gaps in plan: Comprehensive all-hazards checklist framework reduces chances of gaps in plans.
  • Reduces overall planning time: Multi-user framework supports a team-based approach to plan development, allowing many contributors to work simultaneously.
  • Provides real-time view of plan progress: Makes tracking progress of collaborative planning much easier. Planners at all levels get a real-time view of where their organization is, in terms of plan development and completion.
